The national team preparation is proceeding regularly and according to plan
The national triathlon team is holding a training camp in Cholpon-Ata (Kyrgyzstan) from March 8 to 31. The camp takes place on the shore of Issyk-Kul lake under the guidance of the senior coach Murat Aubakirov. He is assisted by team doctor Reimer Ewald.
Seven members of the main and youth national team squads participate in the camp. The coaching staff notes that the main purpose of this camp is to continue the aerobic mesocycle with an emphasis on cycling in mid-mountain conditions.
“The peculiarity of the training camp is that the athletes train in hypoxic conditions. The coaching staff selects work based on physical fitness indicators, medical tests and laboratory data, as well as the individual characteristics of each athlete. The training is going on regularly and according to the plan, - commented Murat Aubakirov.
Upon completion of the training session, athletes will go to Nepal, where on April 2-3 Asian Cup and South Asian Championship will take place at an altitude of more than 3000 meters. Here they must score the necessary points to their world ranking.
