So what is smart endurance training? Interval Training: a Long History International running coach Peter Thompson wrote in Athletics Weekly that clear references to “repetition training” were seen already by the early 1900s (Thompson, 2005). Exercise Intensity Zones Conclusions. Coach Hughes: Training for Older Riders. "When I did my first transcontinental in 1981, I finished in 12-1/2 days and I was toast! I was in my 20s and very fit. Peter’s ride is a terrific accomplishment! "—Lon Haldeman about Peter Lekisch, the first age 60+ rider to finish solo RAAM. by John Hughes © John Hughes, All Rights Reserved John Hughes, the former director of the UltraMarathon Cycling Association and editor of UltraCycling, has been certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a personal trainer and by USA Cycling as a coach.
I particularly enjoy working with older athletes since figuring out effective training is more of a coaching challenge. In 2001 Peter Lekisch became the first 60-year-old rider to finish the solo Race Across AMerica in 12 days 20 hours 50 minutes. Effects of Aging on our Bodies Our bodies peak when we are in our 20s and then start to decline. Training the Aging Body I started working with Peter Lekisch as part of Team Alaska, four 50+ athletes preparing for relay RAAM in 2000.
EverythingByShermer. Title. Training methods employed by accomplished RAAM racers by Bernie Comeau Bernie Comeau, a veteran of RAAM and Furnace Creek, edits "From the Field" - a series of articles on what accomplished RAAM racers (the elite of the ultra community) do and use in order to be successful. Introduction As ultra cyclists, we are all faced with the question of how much training is enough to perform well at the distances we choose to ride.
We need to make sure that we have trained enough so that our bodies are comfortable riding at desired speeds for particular distances. But one of the common misconceptions regarding training for ultra events is that more is better. The logic behind this training philosophy is clear enough. While such high-volume approaches have proven to work for some riders, it has also become clear in recent years that these efforts are not necessary; nor are they the most effective means to train for ultra events. How much training is enough? Base Speed Work Peaking Taper Conclusions. Contador planning final season of Tour de France success. Better to burn out than to fade away. There is some common ground between Kurt Cobain's parting maxim and Alberto Contador's career outlook. "I have always wanted to retire at the highest level – that's the way I want people to remember me," the Spaniard tells Cyclingnews as we sit down in a hotel nestled in the Italian Alps.
With the 2016 season likely to be Contador's last, next year's Tour de France is being lined up as the final firework and, though the 2015 season is not yet over, he already seems immersed in his project. "The primary objective is the Tour de France. I'm a rider who likes to be competitive in every race I enter – I want to do well in the races at the start of the year – but the focus will be purely on the Tour. The only thing I can guarantee is that I'm preparing for it 100 per cent," says the seven-time Grand Tour winner. It may be almost 10 months away, but Contador has already plotted his path to the Grand Départ in Mont Saint Michel. Giro-Tour double. LONG AND EASY- Rethinking Our Approach to Endurance - Strong Swift Durable. LONG AND EASY Rethinking Our Approach to Endurance Cycles by Jordan Smothermon We start our endurance cycle this week and it’s built around a couple of central ideas. 1.
Make your “slow” fast. 2. We started training endurance as a cycle in the first place because one of the primary fitness attributes of a vast majority of military athletes is having the ability to move over ground under load, continuously, at pace. Those are myriad, variable attributes to build into one athlete. One of those training applications is endurance sports. So what is an aerobic base? Base, then, in many ways is slow, consistent movement.
“Slow,” however, is really an inaccurate term. Steve House, the world-renown alpinist and author of the recent book Training for the New Alpinism says the term, “Long, Slow Distance (LSD) should be replaced with Long, Easy Distance.” In this cycle, when we say easy to moderate pace, we’re building your base. What are the benefits of base training? Will it work? What Can You Do in Three Weeks? ~ Hunter Allen Power Blog. All the grand tours are three weeks long. The typical build cycle in training is three weeks long. The life cycle of the cabbage worm is three weeks long. Most women recognize they are pregnant at three weeks. Three weeks, twenty-one days. How much can you improve your fitness in three weeks? If you gave yourself a three-week training camp, how many more watts would you produce at the end of it? Those questions were proposed to me by a client when he decided to create his own three-week training camp.
The first part of the plan was to tackle his weakness (short, anaerobic-type efforts) in the first ten days so he would be relatively fresh, have tons of energy to attack the workouts, and give his body complete recovery between workouts. With the plan in place, the first step was to test his current fitness to find out exactly where he was so we could quantify exactly how much he might improve from the three weeks of hard training. My client’s first block went like this: Friday: Rest day. 3 Steps to Preparing for Back-To-Back Events (or, Why the Giro-Tour Double is so hard!) - CTS.
One of the best things about having a staff of full-time coaches is the impromptu coaching round-table discussions we tend to have. This week we had an interesting discussion about the Giro d’Italia – Tour de France Double, or more broadly the attempt to win two back-to-back Grand Tours in a single season (Giro-Tour or Tour-Vuelta). The wider implications of this conversation for amateur athletes is the discussion of how much recovery and training is necessary to perform well in two big goal events.
How far apart should the events be, and how should an athlete recover/train between the two? Spectacular Summer Coaching Sale! Fine-tune your performance for summer events with this risk-free trial of CTS Coaching. This year it was Alberto Contador who was trying to win both the Giro and the Tour in the same season. The biggest challenge to racing for the win at two back-to-back Grand Tours is balancing the need to recover from the first one and the need to train effectively for the second. Altitude Experience: Successful Trekking and Climbing Above 8,000 Feet - Mike Farris - Google-kirjat.
Himalayan porter's specialization: metabolic power, economy, efficiency and skill | Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B: Biological Sciences. Abstract Carrying heavy loads in the Himalayan region is a real challenge. Porters face extreme ranges in terrain condition, path steepness, altitude hypoxia and climate for 6–8 h a day, many months a year, since they were boys. It has been previously shown that, when carrying loads on level terrain, porters' metabolic economy is higher than in Caucasians but the reasons are still unknown. We monitored Nepalese porters both during 90 km trekking in Khumbu Valley and at two different altitudes (3490 and 5050 m above sea-level), where they were compared to Caucasian mountaineers during (22%) gradient walking.
Both subject groups carried a load of up to 90% body mass. Keywords: 1. Human-powered load carrying, in geographical areas where wheel-based tools are precluded by economical, technological or environmental limitations, has always been a challenge. 2. 3. (a) Lukla–Lobuche trekking, two porters , mvert s−1) in the uphill portion of the trekking was very linear (HR=125.7+239.3 Figure 1 4. J%20Appl%20Physiol-2002-Minetti-1039-46.pdf. Govss.pdf. Kerrison on Watts, weights and suffering | Biscuit Tin Media. Tim Kerrison is the Australian coach brought into Team Sky to re-think the team’s training and work with ‘the GC group’ from 2010 onwards.
Previously, Kerrison had been working as a coach with the British swimming team under Bill Sweetenham and only officially started work with Team Sky at the end of 2009. After a disappointing 2010 and a crash-blighted 2011 Tour, 2012 saw his riders finish one-two on the final podium of the Tour de France. In as much as Team Sky has taken rider support and preparation to new levels (previously, arguably, only the Italian Mapei team had got close), we thought it prudent to ask him to outline his job. “My role as head of performance support with Sky is to guide the training and conditioning of training of the guys that are here. You had no background in cycling at all and the first time you met Bradley Wiggins was in early 2010. I think our whole team thought that. There’s two elements there. Have you had to change Brad’s body shape at all? Um. Um. Chain gang. Sir Dave Brailsford, team principal Sir Dave Brailsford regularly likens his role to that of an ‘orchestra conductor’ and, after two days at the Tenerife training camp, the analogy makes perfect sense.
The team is big and, with every rider and member of staff following different programmes, there are little hubs of Team Sky literally spread all over the world at any one time. Brailsford oversees a conference call every Monday with senior staff where the past week is discussed. ‘I go to where I think I need to be, where there are issues, where I can add value,’ he says. ‘I leave it until very late and make a judgment. I spent a month in Italy for the Giro, a day at home, then to Barcelona, a meeting in London, then on the Dauphine [in France] and on and on it goes. I’m not the guy who picks up the trumpet and starts playing – I just make sure the best trumpet player is in the right place.’ The people entrusted with the key instruments are expected to be innovative and open-minded. Chain gang. Bradley Wiggins reveals Team Sky's explosive secret that has put him in contention for Tour de France.
“People will think what they will think but I’m not the slightest bit bothered. I don’t read the cycling press and I don’t Twitter anymore and let people know my business. I’m a cycling recluse really and love it.” So what is it about training on Mount Teide that has produced such an explosion of form for Wiggins? The dormant volcano – last eruption in 1909 – tops out at 3,718 metres (12,198ft) and its harsh, lunar landscape recently prompted Nasa to test the buggies it hopes to use on Mars landings. The morning air is sparkling, with the hot sun burning off the curtain of cloud that often envelopes the plains below. REACH FOR THE SKY Bradley Wiggins will have climbed the distance to space by the Tour's start. Wiggins is in his element. “From April 1 this year to the day I line up for the Tour de France prologue on June 30, I will have done 100,000 metres of high-quality climbing. “There is no other environment that can beat Mount Teide. “There are no distractions.
What Can You Do in Three Weeks? ~ Hunter Allen Power Blog. All the grand tours are three weeks long. The typical build cycle in training is three weeks long.

Friday: Rest day. Eight weeks of simulated altitude training – an introduction. You only have to look as far as Team Sky's Tenerife training camps to see that altitude training is taken seriously at the pointy end of the sport. Now, in collaboration with the Melbourne-based Bodyology altitude training facility we've been able to tee up an eight-week simulated altitude training block for local A-grade cyclist Stephen Lane. Stephen is nearing completion of a PhD in training adaptation at RMIT University so in addition to sharing his subjective experience of the altitude training, Stephen can bring his sports science expertise to bear.
In this first instalment, Stephen talks us through the initial testing and the first few training sessions in his eight-week block. As endurance athletes our one golden staple is oxygen. In Australia our Alpine regions peak out at approximately 2000m in altitude. Atop Falls Creek here in Victoria, Australia, at an altitude of roughly 1600m, the oxygen availability is the equivalent of reducing oxygen via simulation to about 17%. Training time. Want to see Alberto Contador, Chris Froome and Vincenzo Nibali in action together? You could wait for the Critérium du Dauphiné in June but, as today’s L’Equipe shows, they will all meet up this month in Tenerife for training camps on Mount Teide. Quite probably they will all stay in the same hotel, setting up an intriguing atmosphere with the three great rivals for the Tour de France sitting down for dinner together, albeit at different tables. It’s easy to spend hours reviewing the tactics in a race but very little time and coverage is given to what a rider’s job really involves: training.
Training > racing So far this year Caja Rural’s Luis Leon Sanchez is the rider with the most days of racing: 43 days. Definition Reduced to its simplest, training involves providing a stimulus to the body prompting it to react. But what of pro cycling training regimes? “The details of a session would cover an A4 page… A big day. That’s not an A4 page but gives you some detail. Who Coaches Who?
