    Santos Tour Down Under 2016 stage 5

    If we have been diligent in our offseason training, we have likely done some nice foundational work to build up our base fitness and functional threshold.

    The New Year often brings new resolutions. For most cyclists, at least one of those resolutions involves reaching higher levels of performance than we’ve ever achieved before.

    You can learn a lot about yourself and your training priorities from your power profile, primarily your average maximal power over 5 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minute, and 60 minutes (functional threshold power). But dig deeper and you can better understand your fatigue profile, giving even more insight into yourself as a rider.

    Toolbox: Last week, we gave a general overview of a valuable set of basic testing to perform in order to obtain your general power profile.

From there, we also need to develop a plan to move forward and achieve our cycling goals.

    Michael Rasmussen,

    The societal pressure to be thin & beautiful can be an obsession to minimize body fat at all costs. Just how important is it for cyclists to be so lean, and what tests we can use to measure body fatness?
