When setting out on a competition like the PDG, certain participants can fear that their capacities will not live up to expectations of the event, whether it be on the short or long course. To help them put the biggest chance of success on their side, they invest an enormous amount of time and energy into training and are always in search of good and sound advice. To help support these athletes, the commander of the PDG is happy to collaborate with the Swiss Olympic Medical
Center at the Clinique romande de réadaptation, which acts as partner in training advice for the 'patrouilleurs' in 2016.
Basically, during the months preceding the Patrouille, the Swiss Olympic Medical Center
supplies practical information regarding crucial aspects of race preparation :
Ski-mountaineering endurance training and development
Training at high altitude
Nutrition of the Patrouilleur
Specific ski-mountaineering strength training
Time and stress management for the race preparation
These articles are available on the PDG, Swiss
Olympic Medical Center, and the CRR FaceBook pages and also on the CRR's Internet site.
