A recovery ride is about promoting blood flow to the legs without producing much of a training response. Often cyclists will go too hard on a recovery ride thinking an easy ride is not very productive. In this video I explain why knowing how to go easy is as important as knowing how to go hard.

Recently I spent some time in Poland with the Iceman Wim Hof. I did not ride my bike for over 2 weeks but when I got back on my bike I was very surprised to find that I felt like I had lost no fitness. This is not how I normally feel after a 2 week break.
In this video I share what I did to keep my form while not being able to train.

In this video I share with you 3 sessions that will help you to keep improving or at least hold a high level of fitness even when life throws a curve ball or you don’t feel you have enough time to train.
If you perform these 3 sessions each week you will continue to improve or maintain a high level. The beauty is you only need 3 of these specific sessions each week to hold a very high level of fitness.
The 3 sessions/week are:
1 x Muscular Endurance ride (long tempo effort or group ride)
1 x V02 Session (2-4 minutes at above threshold intensity)
1 x Threshold/Sub Threshold (sustained effort for 15-60 minutes).
