Have you ever heard of the phrase “if you have a question, ask it. Someone else probably has the same question but is afraid to ask it?” Over my time in practice and coaching athletes, I've found this to be true time and time again. Cyclists both young and old, new and seasoned, racer and group rider come to me with many of the same questions, each one looking for an answer as to why they are having trouble with something and how they can advance their fitness. In most cases, it's simple changes to their program that can produce stellar results.
In today's podcast, I'll go over a couple of questions and concepts that I've been seeing a lot lately. These are all things that you average cyclist needs to know in order to become a faster, stronger rider. I'll shed some light on:
- Do you need a power meter to train effectively?
- Who benefits from training with power?
- How many “A” races are too many?
- What pitfalls are there in planning a season?
- Why do my legs “get heavy and lose their ability to push?”
- What can I address to take my fitness to the next level?
