Zone 2 training is a slower, lower intensity exercise that uses fatty acids and mitochondria to provide energy. There is a significant amount of scientific evidence to support the benefits of Zone 2 training, including:

A 2022 study published in PLoS One found that Zone 2 training improves blood flow in the body, which speeds up muscle repair without causing additional inflammation and damage to the muscles.

A study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that endurance athletes who trained in Zone 2 for six weeks showed significant improvements in their aerobic capacity and fat metabolism.

Zone 2 training improves your ability to go longer, use energy sources more efficiently, have a lower recovery demand, lower cardiac strain, and less risk of injury.
