Strength training is an excellent complement to endurance sports. Cyclists and triathletes now recognise that it is a fundamental part of training. Here we explain how to set up an effective strength training programme for cyclists and triathletes.
Your main races are the most important thing to determine what your training should be. Training and preparation races all lead to your main event. We show you how to plan your season and what a difference good planning makes.
What is actually the difference between interval training and a multiple steady sessions at comparable intensities?
The Internet is full of different training plans with just as many training philosophies. At 2PEAK, hard facts are the basis of your plan and a daily tailor-made training is the focus. There is only one optimal plan for you and your life situation – we want to find it. We outlined below using five 2PEAK functions that help us do this.
2PEAK offers you a unique tool to auto-detect your interval efforts and if they fit the designated criteria, will highlight and classify them as intervals.
Smart Training is meant to help you, to work on your deficits and to get you to your individual, optimal form.
“How can I swap my workout for today with the one planned for Tuesday? It’s raining and cold today, while the sun will be out on Tuesday”.
Cardiovascular drift is a well-known phenomenon, but the exact timing of its occurrence in the body remains unclear, as it is highly individual and depends on many different factors. Essentially, cardiovascular drift is when your heart rate increases even though your exercise intensity remains the same.
During winter, without any races going on you’re mostly just training (more or less by yourself). You train but you still don’t really know where you stand in comparison to other athletes. Then Easter rolls along, many have already been in their first training camp for this year and the race season is only a few weeks away. Yup, time is definitely flying by and with it comes the question if we are on course/track. Am I training enough? Am I making progress? Is my data correct?
After a race there’s always two aspects to be analysed. How is your body (physical aspect) and how’s the head (psychological aspect) dealing with the ups and downs and the fight with ourselves? It’s normal and a good stimulus for us to not always be 100% happy with how a race went. Because there’s always at least one thing that could be optimised. Important is, that we can use this to learn and improve ourselves for the next big day.
