What about the weather?
Must be nice cycling in warm weather! California is 43 degrees near Yosemite
What is fastened training protocol? Laurens?
Trainig without breakast. Improves fat oxidation, glycogen resynthesis etc. Lots of research on this topic done at Leuven University.
@Martijn de Groot: But not to long right?
For us mere mortals 1 to 1.5 hrs of fasted training is probably enough to start with. But for a pro 84km is still pretty short.
You are the coolest. Thanks for sharing these!
right on LTD, breakfast is for post-ride
does it work?
Without breakfast ? The ride started at 2.33pm...
Without lunch then ;-)
Anyone have any more info on this training technique? I do it often, just empty with coffee and then do 2-3 hours at tempo or less but wondering how hard/long should the rides be to get max benefit. Also ow many rides a week should be done empty?
Could all rides be done on empty? Then on some higher intensity/longer rides eat during? Is it bes do stay below FTP when trying to maximise fat oxidisiation? Also How do you avoid cramp if only having water?
you hold tempo for 3 hours? you're afreaking machine!!
@everybody. Protocol is normal breakfast, 2,5 hour depletion ride. Lunch omelette. And than the blocks at 2.30pm. After blocks allowed carbs again.
That's pretty hardcore.
How dow you feel during this fasted block training? Does it feel like bonking all the time (cold, low HR, bad performance etc)?
