endurance exercise performance (∼10-km time-trial) were assessed on a cycle ergometer. Muscular endurance (total workload achieved during 30 reciprocal isokinetic contractions) was assessed by isokinetic dynamometry and body composition by DXA. Dietary intake was assessed at baseline and during the

shorter sprints (i.e., 100-, 200-m races). Physique and Body Composition Periodization Despite a long history of sprinting in the Olympic Games, relatively few studies describe the physique of elite sprinters. What is known is that successful sprinters have unique physical traits that predispose them to

appears that elite athletes include various versions of “train high,” “train low,” and “gut training” within their training programs, both accidentally and intentionally ( Heikura et al., 2018 ; Stellingwerff, 2012 ). Periodization of body composition provides another example of strategic integration of
