Have you ever scratched your head in frustration at the many contradictions in training advice and practices?
I know I have.
The above is a fitting summary of my experience with being an adolescent endurance athlete. That nagging frustration of not truly understanding how the puzzle fits together.
When I began studying human physiology at university my reading quickly wandered off into the field of exercise physiology. I soon started writing about my readings, and voila, the Norwegian blog Wattkoden was born.
Five years, and upwards of 1,000,000 pageviews later, its English-speaking sibling Wattkg took its first stumbling steps into the big world.
This is the website you’re currently reading. I am hoping you’ll find the site useful, thought provoking or at the very least an enjoyable read.
Medical Doctor, MSc, BSc
