Related to the polarised vs sweetspot debate, I found this podcast an interesting counterpoint to the kind of thing you hear on TR’s.
Isn't he basically the modern poster boy for polarized training?
I didn’t know he also played Harrison Ford.
TR are not, as many expected, responding to last weeks viral video.. instead they are dropping a whole new product update called adaptive training.
1,000+ joining the podcast for some beef...it feels very dylan who right now..
Probably a stupid question but - I’m moderately fit but won’t be the fast guy in a club run, nor am I an amazing climber (190cm/80kg), but whenever climbing a fair amount (say over 1000/1500m total elevation for a ride no more than 100km) on a ride I will without exception cramp.
I’m sure the easy answer is “train more/get stronger” but I’m wondering, would off the bike strength work help, for instance squats/lunges and the like? Climbing always mean pushing heavier and grinding more than usual so wondering how direct a benefit that might bring?
electrolytes in my bottles clears my cramp right up. even just a pinch of salt + a pinch of sugar works ime
Cramp seems to be a pretty personal thing. Hydration, fuel, temperature all factor in as well exertion.
The thing I’d say is if you are grinding and you seem to link this to your cramp why not get some lower gearing?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
