What is Neuro-Training?

Imagine this, you’ve just finished a hard days work, put your trainers on, and head to the gym… feels hard, right? That’s the effect of mental fatigue, which has been shown to significantly hinder our performance. The good news is, you can train your tolerance to mental fatigue through neuro-training. By using Neuro-Training you can achieve:

  • Increased Mental Resilience
  • Improved Athletic Performance
  • Improved Decision Making
  • Increased Tolerance to Mental Fatigue

How to use?

We have three types of Neuro-Training Sessions:

  • Pre-Workout – These are designed to be used before a low-intensity workout. These sessions will increase your level of mental fatigue before your physical workout, meaning that you will be training under a level of mental fatigue. Expect this to increase your perception of effort in your workout.
  • Post-Workout – These are designed to be used after a high-intensity workout or skills session. This will finish your workout off with some additional mental load, allowing you to achieve the benefits of Neuro-Training without hindering your physical performance in your high-intensity workout.
  • Standalone – These sessions are designed to be integrated into your week as a standalone mental workout adding mental load to your training plan. They can be used on physical recovery days or as an additional session on your training days.

Before your next workout, try one of our pre-workout sessions such as ‘Quick Build Up’ which you can find under ‘Pre-Workout’, or if you’re reading this on your phone, simply tap the button below. Enjoy!

The Science Behind Neuro-Training

The science behind Neuro-Training first began in a landmark 2009 study that highlighted the negative effect that mental fatigue has on athletic performance. Neuro-Training uses a protocol called Brain Endurance Training (BET) which has been shown in fMRI brain scans and numerous peer-reviewed studies to improve athletic performance by targeting the part of the brain responsible for managing fatigue, decision making and the suppression of undesirable impulses aka will power.

Research done in 2015, showed that brain training is highly effective in improving endurance performance when combined with traditional physical training. Those in the brain-training group had a 3x improvement in time to exhaustion (TTE) than the control group (+126% compared to +42%) over a 12 week training period.
