Q&A #33 - Incorporating bike or run commutes to work in training, and distinguishing between good and bad lower heart rate
  • How should you effectively incorporate bike or run commutes into your training to get training benefits without compromising quality in other key workouts? 
  • How does this change if you do both a regular workout and the morning bike/run commute?
  • How should you think about nutrition around training in the morning and commuting to work?
  • How do you distinguish between a reduction in exercise heart rate due to getting fitter versus being in a state of non-functional over-reaching?

Sebastian Weber is a sports scientist and highly successful coach, in both professional sports (having worked with athletes like Peter Sagan, Tony Martin, and André Greipel) and with age-group endurance athletes. He is also the co-founder of the physiological performance software INSCYD. In this episode we discuss cycling technique, quality of movement, and holding a good (aerodynamic) position, and how the LEOMO Type-R device can be used to improve these important but easily forgotten aspects of cycling and triathlon cycling.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The importance of quality of movement in cycling, and how it has become somewhat forgotten in a world obsessed with power.

-The LEOMO Type-R device, and how it can measure quality of movement in a large variety of ways to help assess and inform training.

-Examples of common issues regarding quality of movement and how to correct them

-How to use the LEOMO Type-R to improve aerodynamics

-How much should triathletes and time trialists train in the TT-position

-Is the LEOMO Type-R a good investment for age-group triathletes?
