Amber and Ivy are back, joining Nate and I for a discussion on where should you draw the line with aggressive racing, why your sprint power may be lower than you want and how to improve it, why over-unders are so hard and what you can do to improve with them, our thoughts on crucial matters like what workouts we’d force upon our worst enemies, #supertuckgate and much more in Episode 297 of the Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast.
Tune in live on YouTube, Thursday at 8:00am Pacific, or catch the archive on your favorite podcast app!
Thanks for the sprint coverage! Like Nate my standing sprint is only about 100W higher than seated sprint and both are north of 1000W so its literally the only above average aspect of my cycling performance Of course I’m doing regular sprint training, and have cycled thru different technique drills. What appears to be slowly moving the needle for me is what @IvyAudrain described - rising out of the saddle into an aggressive forward position. And somewhat counterintuitively I’m working on improving that by doing standing intervals during zone2/3 rides except here the goal is to stand without a change in power. Right now 90% of the time when I stand my power jumps from zone2 to >FTP. My (current) hope is that improving coordination on the easy stuff will improve overall neuromuscular response when it is go time. There are so many things that have to quickly come together in that short span of time!!!
Fair. I’m not seeing any connections in this thread even though I replied to yours and turmukhambetov’s comment. Normally there’s that extra “widget” showing the replies to a comment. Not seeing them here.
If you click the reply under a specific comment, I think it makes the connection, but it might skip that for adjacent comments. Not sure on that exactly, but I know it adds it if there is separate between the referenced (replied to) comment.
As mentioned, quoting can be helpful to avoid potential confusion.
