Six wrong training methods in riding
Riders have many different purposes for riding, so everyone’s training goals and methods should be tailored to their individual needs.
In fact, each of us has a “personal coach”, that is, ourselves.
Therefore, we must rely on self-awareness in training and riding to adjust the intensity, frequency and type, so this is why we are prone to make mistakes in training.
So, the following six common wrong training methods, did you lie down with a gun? Too little are you the kind of cyclist who trains sporadically and aimlessly? Although this kind of training can ensure that you can avoid sports injuries, it can’t make you win any games or blow up your friends and get to the cafe first.
What makes you better? It’s constant training.
Please try to find out why you train in this way, because of work? Or family? After all, both of them are more important than cycling, which is understandable; But if it’s just pure laziness, please change yourself.
Small tips: consider adding more low-intensity training (such as walking and simple swimming).
In this way, you will maintain your basic fitness level and make recovery training easier and more enjoyable.
Too enthusiastic many drivers think they can ride faster if they work harder and train too much.
In a way, that’s right; But for most people, this will only accumulate fatigue, leading to the final “explosion”.
Only when your training method is smart enough, more difficult training will bring improvement.
Please refer to the 10% principle: the weekly mileage or average weekly intensity will never increase by more than 10%.
Tips: try to ensure that after two to three weeks of high-intensity training, you have a week to relax and enjoy the fun of leisure riding.
Too fast indeed, you can ride faster at certain times and places, but are you really the one who can take it easy and resist the temptation of high speed? For beginners, try to mix at least two short and simple rides when you go out for a high-intensity ride.
A simple ride will not only allow you to fully recover from the loss of high-intensity riding, but also aerobic exercise will enable you to ride faster next time.
Tips: we live in a fast-paced society, and we must complete everything we did yesterday.
When you take part in riding activities aimed at blasting, please seize the opportunity to slow down for a while.
This will not only make you feel full of blood, but will actually improve your training efficiency.
It’s too late.
Ideally, most drivers who work nine to six come home from work, sit down, have a bite of food, and then go out to ride for an hour; The reality is that after a hard day’s work, I can no longer ride.
I can only “ge you paralyzed” on the sofa.
(Xiaobian has been lying on the gun) as a result, the solution is to go out and ride in the morning.
Obviously, the most difficult thing is to get up early.
But doing some careful planning the night before may mean that you don’t have good traffic conditions, clean routes and satisfactory cycling to start the day.
Tips: make sure your bike and tools are ready the night before.
Know what you want to do and make sure you have a clear purpose.
Before going out, remember to have a breakfast and drink (preferably coffee) to ensure the efficiency of riding.
Too light equipment parties are infatuated with the word “weight”.
Cycling and weight are always inseparable.
The ultimate goal is to obtain a better power to weight ratio, whether it is to buy a “birth control artifact” all carbon seat cushion or try every means to lose weight.
However, a misconception is that lighter can ride faster.
You should realize that food is not your enemy, but your friend.
It provides important nutrients to help you ride.
Tips: don’t be obsessed with your mini weight and eat healthily.
Try not to use weight loss as your sole motivation for cycling.
If you eat wisely and exercise regularly, your weight will naturally drop.
Too far, riding too many miles every week, overtraining will bring sports injury.
The secret to riding farther is to increase gradually, which will put you in good shape.
Gradually adapt to the above mentioned 10% principle.
If you ride 100 kilometers this week, you should not exceed 110 kilometers next week.
If you want to increase the amount of weekly training, but you are worried that your body can not load, you can try some different cross training, such as walking, running, swimming or strength training.
This will greatly improve your overall performance, but it is important to follow the same principles and not to do too much too fast.
Small tips: increasing mileage means the accumulation of training pressure, so with the increase of weekly training, it is important to balance training pressure and rest.
Over time, you will be able to cope with higher mileage and have a positive impact on your training…
