POWER OR CADENCE? ERG OR LEVEL? QUIT OR GO ON?
We get asked all the time:
"Which targets should I focus on hitting? Power or cadence?"
"Should I use ERG mode or level mode on this workout?"
"What do I do if I'm just not feeling it?"
To answer these common questions we created this handy-dandy reference guide, suitable for framing and hanging in your Bike Torture Chamber (click on the image to download the PDF).
EVEN THE BADASS HAVE BAD DAYS: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CAN'T DO
There are going to be times when you simply won’t be feeling it. The intervals will seem too long, the wattage targets way too high, and the recovery periods frustratingly short. Even the badass have bad days.
It could be due to any number of factors: lack of sleep, poor nutrition, overtraining, a compromised immune system. Regardless of the reason, just because you’re not feeling your best doesn’t mean that all is lost. You can still salvage your workout and reap some Return on Suffering.
