Why you feel better after doing a workout, the science and structure behind VO2 Max training, the effect of training and activity on caffeine processing rates plus more in Episode 252 of the Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast.
Thanks for the shoutout! Sadly we (at https://brightontri.org/) haven’t managed to find Coop a trainer yet (this is partly my own damn fault, lending him a bike with thru-axles) but we have several offers of rollers if he fancies falling off a lot
Also I wish I had an Exploro! It’s a Strada Pro I lent him
What was the substance you mentioned during the discussion on caffeine? It was in conjunction with caffeine or in lieu of caffeine. Lasted longer without the negative effects.
Thanks for a great podcast. Very rich.
Enjoyed the piece on VO2 max - I am wondering whether you can use HR to point you to whether you’re hitting VO2 max or not as well as feeling and breath rate? I was doing 1.5 min VO2 repeats yesterday and felt they maybe weren’t tough enough. HR didn’t get above 169 and my max is maybe 195. I would guess that operating at max aerobic capacity would involve pumping oxygenated blood around as quickly as possible but maybe I misunderstand!
