Re: Interval training discussion thread

The train of thought is the important issue.The method is to establish the work load you can do, and find a way to make incremental improvement. Heartrate is measuring how hard your system is working, it can be effected by hydration level, fatigue level. You still use your heart rate in conjunction ...

Re: Interval training discussion thread

Recently a question came up about what intervals to do with the new powermeter to improve aerobic power. I think the question is a little bit off target. The goals you set need to be more concrete, like setting a time or achieving a particular power per time output. 5 minute and 60 minute power are ...

Re: Interval training discussion thread

For the sprint power the most important thing is do not exceed the 12 seconds and you must go 100% not 98 or 99% The importance of lifting that peak power is shown once again in the world champs. Cavendish's Aerobic power output would be at best in the middle of the field, the determinent factor in ...

Weiyun you have missed the intent of the post. Identify the short coming then address it. The Cardiovascular system is addressed in one of the other sample intervals.

To clarify, Re intervals they are very important. Re training with power it can be used thesis as material or be no more complex than any other measure of work.

Re: Interval training discussion thread

Re: Interval training discussion thread

20/40's are the flavour of the month. But it depends on what you are preparing for. The main rationale for intervals is being able to spend more time in the zone per workout. eg if you blast out a 4K pursuit, you cant back up after 5 minutes and crank out another one. If however you know the load (w...

One import caveat is, with your base work , I'm not a fan of fluffing about, try and build to a 140ish average heart rate(assuming 190max)as a minimum for all but your recovery rides. You can do 3hr bunch rides and come back with an average of 110 which is a waste of time. All of this is very genera...
