Re: Building endurance base / MHR

I would question the concept (excuse pun) of junk metres... With the caveat of good tech! There are tremendous long term and performance potential gains from, of what is being defind in this thread as junk! Polarised training Would call for 80% of sessions goals to be at the lower end or even below ...

Re: "Seiler" Intervals

Hi.. I found max HR to be higher on erg rower than bike ... more muscles?? On these sets You are looking for a pace between VO2 max (2k pace ish) and threshold (FTP?) probably near 10k pace!! He also suggests this range over max efforts Don't forget most of his suggested work is significantly slower...

Re: Keto

Hi Josh

I did feel the restriction on fruit made it a no no for me too

But I did increase veggies ... So probably no loss there

Big problem was Mrs not following it too... And setting cake traps

I felt like shit too and training performance was compromised. But gradually improved

Re: Doubt about training intensity zone.

Max hr... N - age is utter nonsense.
My max and resting rate has changed little in the last 35 years
You need to establish your own and other parameters before you start defining your zones
Even then HR is not perfect... Far from it.
Use watts !

Re: How much does 2K time drop in off season?

Hi.
Apart from academically does it matter?

You've peaked for your 2k and now you are going through the cycle again. Lots of base km to build your aerobic base and increase your potential

Re: Rowing or Strength first in a given workout session?

My thoughts If the weights are to improve strength for rowing then weights first then row to get some specific 'carry over' I may warm up then do some weights and fit anaerobic alactate rows into a small circuit. My gym has the technogym skillrows which have magnetic resistance which can be utilised.

Re: Can you get Erectile Dysfunction similar to a bicycle seat?

Hi I suffered from numbness in the penis. This was brought on , I am convinced by spending hours on a wattbike (substitute any other trainer /turbo). The problem here I feel is that one is sat in one position for a long period. Out on the bike there is movement (even looking around slightly changes ...

Re: How to determine the appropriate HIIT ?

Hi

I assume you are trying a polarized program??

If you are aiming to maximise your aerobic capacity as opposed to anaerobic something that fall between your Vo2 max and anaerobic threshold would be of benefit... something between say your 10k pace and your 2k pace
