Episode 34: Aerobic Block Review & Anaerobic Block Intro

We’ve wrapped up our ‘COVID-19’ Aerobic Threshold Booster Plan and ready to take on the next progression: Anaerobic Threshold Training. Before we dig into the new 6-week training block to sharpen our ‘lockdown fitness’ while we wait for normalcy and racing to resume, we address many of the things we witnessed with our WE Development Junior Team, local athletes we coach, and in our own training. We touch on concepts such as recognizing fatigue & personal limits of training loads, when to take extra recovery, fueling & weight gain, highs & lows of testing and making sure your test results are accurate enough.

After the review & of our aerobic training block, we dive into the nitty gritty details of our upcoming Anaerobic Threshold Booster training block. Our ‘COVID phase 2’ plan switches gears into a more polarized model with alternating high-intensity sessions and low-intensity sessions that build off our aerobic gains and ramp up the top-end fitness. We discuss how the intervals progress from mid to high-intensity and long duration to short durations corresponding to your individual energy systems from Anaerobic Threshold to Vo2max to Anaerobic Power. Also discussed is the progression from heart-rate focused lower-intensity aerobic training to power focused high-intensity training, adding muscular endurance to your aerobic endurance rides, and keeping your easy days easy so your hard days can be hard!
