So starting in November, I’ll begin my second progression through a full TR set (base, build, specialty). I was looking at doing sweet spot base 2 twice, instead of the usual 1 then 2 progression. My reasoning is that I didn’t want to take 6 weeks off of some form of vo2 work, and that the vo2 in ssb2 isn’t all that heavy. To the more experienced users, would this be a good idea, or would doing ssb2 twice be too much going forward into a build then specialty progression?
I agree with Captain_Doughnutman but will say it can be very hard mentally to to 12 weeks of sweetspot. I modified my 2. SSB with en a single VO2max day on sundays insted of the long hard SS-ride. That helped o lot and I think I need to get in that zone for real progression
In this reddit, @Nate said yes to it being ok to do SSB2 twice.
