I used plan builder to make my calendar. I just finished Base 1 and do 3.5 hours a week on 3 days a week (T/Th/Sat). I’m supposed to go right into Base 2 on Tuesday. I also weight train and do a program called Body Beast M-F. I really enjoyed the change in work out type this last week in Base 1 and overall don’t feel burnt out or like I’ve over trained. Pretty sure I have made good gains all around. Here are my 2 questions:
Would there be any reason I would want to put a rest week in between what I just finished and starting Base 2? Plan builder didn’t put one in.
I find that during many of the workouts to get the proper cadence I am slightly above the power that is recommeded. I’m thinking it may be due to my improvements over the 6 weeks since my first ramp test. Is it preferable to be this way compared to being slightly below the power recommended? I use an Elite Suito and use ERG mode but find I still would rather find the proper gear for my training compared to staying in the same gear for the entire workout.
