- those of you who use a turbo trainer
😀 Thats DGOAB being spammed to death from now on then, automated email harvesters will have a field day with just spaces between the parts!
I’ll leave you with the other advice given to me – don’t overdo it; it’s the rest between the sessions that makes you stronger!
I must be REALLY strong – it must be 6 months between sessions for me!Posted 9 years agooldgitMember
Turbos are for me anyway there to use when I can’t get out, like now. Did I mention my broken ribs?Posted 9 years ago
Though when I have used my turbos I do feel smoother when I get back on the road or trail, and that’s from just pedaling away on them. So they do me good without any structured sessions, thank god because I really need to take my brain out when I’m on them.shoefitiMember
Pin this to the garage door, kind of like how you dangle a carrot in front of a donkey
That’s no use, as soon as you close the garage door you’ll get pissed up, verbally abuse someone then shag a tarty hairdresser – that’s not ideal training.
By the way i do (used to, when i could be bothered) do 15 mins warm up, 2x20mins at lactic threashold (5 mins easy between) 15 mins warm down.
or: same warm up 5 x 5 mins at highest sustainable power (got up to 400 watts when i was fit) then same cool down.
Once a fortnight do 60 minutes at threashold – just to see if i could ever break the hour record – unfortunatly at 330 watts for 11.8 stone i was always shite and my dreams faded away :o(
i’m thinking of dragging it out this week thou – haven’t used it in a bit – the power meter doesn’t lie, so last time i used it i just got depressed.Posted 9 years agojohnnersMember
Try this book – it’s got loads of suggestions for training sessions based around whatever aspect of fitness you’re trying to address. I find it helpful to have a session defined for me even when (like you) I understand the principles and could work out my own.
