Our collaborator cycling and performance, gives us in this article several "Express" trainings to maximize the physiological adaptations associated with the intensity of work we use
The training load is made up of three components: costumes (weather), intensity (watts / pulse / speed) and Density (relationship between training and rest).
In the case that concerns us, volume and density would be very limited (low volume and low density), so when looking for a progression in training we could hardly play with them.
The intensity, the most important part
This makes the key training key, when I have little time, be the intensity. Intensity management will be the most important part of our plan.
Obviously, if intensity is the most important part, being able to measure and control it correctly is essential. Here we must remember again that the only really reliable and effective way to do it is with a potentiometer.
They are 1-hour sessions that are designed to maximize the physiological adaptations associated with the intensity of work we use. Throughout the season we will change the sessions.
This type of session could be done between 2 and 4 times during the week for a total of 3-4 express sessions per week. If we can do more than 4 sessions we will do the extras with soft shoots.
SHORT ESPRINTS SESSION (1h)
ANAEROBIC ESION WITH 30 ”SERIES (1h)
BILLAT SESSION OF AEROBIC POWER (1h)
