KH - just wondering mate, why you still using HR now you have a PM....?
Just got mine up and running over the weekend, stoked with it! Can't wait to get some more info, do a FTP and get a power profile.
TP I use all metrics available. I am in the if you can measure it you can use it camp so even though I have a PM I still use HR as well.
@ Devinci - For me it's about 150W at the moment. I'm running about 400W on then back to 250W off.
I have started a gradual taper program for this season which is constructed of;
Saturday Sunday Hard efforts (System Overload, 5x5, 50-60Km with 750-1000m of climbing, VO2Max sessions,etc)
Tuesday Variation of Modified 2 x 20, Powersteps, 2 x 20, 4 x 10, etc
Wednesday 75% FTP for 45m - 1hr
Thursday Race - Crit 50mins+ approx 37-40Km (Depending on group)
Here is one of my final 2 day blocks before race day.
Variation of 2 x 20
10m Warm Up
20m @ 90% FTP or 80-85% MHR @ 95+ RPM
15m @ 90% FTP or 85+% MHR @ 90 RPM
1m build to sprint (Ride this like you are pushing hard fighting for position building speed and intensity before exploding towards the line - Last 10-15 seconds @ what you've got left in the tank - you should be hitting 95-100% MHR)
45m @ 75% FTP or <75% MHR
5m Bars @ 95, 5m Hoods @ 100, 5m Drops @ 95 -100 Repeat 3 times
Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story......ArgonCAAD9 6.78KgSupersix 6.78Kg
