The foundations for successful riding
Just got my wisdom teeth taken out, feeling cranky
point taken about Hoy and endurance riding.. but either way, swimming is good for recovery and injury, and AA Merchant is looking to get his fitness up from training.
i hope one day we can all race and let our rankings do the talking
Alex, what do you think of a 6 week resistance training plan for neuromuscular power?
What are these salesmen peddling?
I'm not sure what an individual's physical abilities has to do with their knowledge of the application of the science? But anyhooo...
It depends on a few things, inter alia
- the nature of the event (in what way NMP is to be used),
- what the key limiting element(s) of the athlete's physiology is/are with respect to the target event(s),
- the nature of the resistance training (for instance, is it targeting the appropriate adaptations needed?)
For some it will make them slower.
For others it can be highly beneficial.
For some, doing NMP training on a bike will be more beneficial.
thank you all heaps - - - over the past couple months ive gotten better at riding my bike .. and my gf got me a new bike ...
thanks to all your advise im now down to 85 kilo and my average speed sits between 30 - 32 km ( trying to ride in the small chain ring as much as possible ) was previously sitting at 24 km when i first asked for advise
thanks to the advise on sprinting up hills my average climbing speed has gotten better although i havent been to the dandenongs yet - ive been sprinting up and then slowly walking down then as fast as i can back up
ive been doing some kettle bell training for over all strength and i think i need to incorporate isolation exercises to become stronger ( dead lifts , squats , lunges , pull ups , bench press , dips and lat pull downs ) some how i cant explain why but it feels good and gives the extra push on the bike .. ive noticed this over the past 6 weeks or so ...
thank you too all who have posted comments and any further advise and info is more than welcome ..
Nitpick: None of the exercises mentioned there are what you would call isolation exercises. They are compound exercises. Isolation exercises are things like bicep curls, flyes, leg extensions etc, which only involve a single joint movement. Compound exercises have two or more joint movements.
