    2x20s @ 98%

    I did my best to do it DOOFUS style - nothing but a fan and a trainer pointed at the wall.

    I am weak. I resorted to musical doping.

    Using a multiplier is perfectly legitimate. The closer to 1 hrs. you can go the better BUT if you are not already in decent shape 20 mins. is what I'd have you do.
    Specificity and total volume of continuous training results into better LTHR / FTP numbers. Not sure if "better" is legit but you know what I mean. On any given day your LTHR / FTP is what it is. The "number" is a range to work with, honor that.

    Weather is getting TONS better so I'm changing over to weight maintenance mode next couple weeks.

They are recommending that the 20-min average HR is LTHR; I've seen other tests where you go hard for 30 min, but take the average HR for the final 20 minutes and calculate 95% of that as LTHR. So I'm not sure if with the test I did I should use the 20-min average as is, or reduce it by 5%. Obviously, there is a difference in calculating training zones....

    Travel this week. Monday WO was an hour of elliptical and some weights. Today was breakfast fork lifting, 8 hours at the office, sitting five hours in an airport and if the plane shows up another six hours in a flying beer can.

    I caught the cold that my daughter had this Sunday. Runny nose, back ache, dizzy at times, it may have been the flu. No gym or bike work since last Saturday. Symptoms let up yesterday, I took no medicine last night in preparation for a trial workout.

    There is some lingering respiratory issues, shortness of breath, so no bike work. I went into the gym this morning and did my ďchestĒ routine using dumbbells and descending in weight after each set.

    Flat bench- 4 sets
    Incline bench flys- 4 sets
    Flat bench dumbbell pull overs- 4 sets
    Seated lat pulls- 4 sets
    Tricep straight bar pull downs- 4sets

    I did four sets each knowing that stamina would be low per set, so the extra set allowed more volume.
    I did OK, had that nice pumped feeling when I left. Probably due to pent up energy. If I could go back in time I would have done my leg routine today instead. I will do legs tomorrow.

    As I write this though, Iím physically tired. I can tell that itís the heart and lungs. Iíll try to stay hydrated and eat light and sleep well to recover and not overdo it tomorrow.
    Iím not 100%. Itís discouraging as I was making good gains, but Iíve got to have the discipline to not go too hard too soon. Today may have been a bit too much for me.

    2 weeks since I did a lil' number on my back while dead lifting. Decided to be careful.

    Squat: 5x5 @ 185
    Deadlift: 5x5 @ 185
    Press: 12, 10, 8, 6, 4. Almost pooped myself the last set. Funny how not lifting for 10 days makes everything so hard.

    Even though yesterdayís leg routine knocked me into the ground, I knew I had to keep going to get back on schedule. So, today was shoulder day. As always, I change it up slightly from the last one to promote muscle confusion/growth.

    Standing Overhead Press Dumb Bells- 4 sets descending in weight.
    Set 1- 30lb dumb bellsX6 reps/Set 2 25lb dumb bellsX8 reps/Set 3- 20lbs dumb bellsX10 reps/Set 4- 15lbs dumb bellsX12 reps

    Standing Lateral Raise Dumb Bells- 4 sets descending in weight.
    Set 1- 20lbs dumb bellsX6 reps/Set 2- 15lbs dumb bellsX8 reps/Set 3- 10lbs dumb bellsX12 reps/Set 4 5lbs dumb bells to failure, I got 16 reps

    Standing Upright Rows Dumb Bells- 4 sets descending in weight.
    Set 1- 30lbs dumb bellsX6 reps/Set 2- 25lbs dumb bellsX8 reps/Set 3- 20lbs dumb bellsX10 reps/Set 4- 15lbs dumb bellsX12 reps

    Standing Shoulder Shrugs Dumb Bells- 4 sets descending in weight.
    Set 1- 40lbs dumb bellsX6reps/Set 2- 35lbs dumb bellsX8 reps/Set 3- 30lbs dumb bellsX10 reps/Set 4- 25lbs dumb bellsX12 reps

    Standing Bicep Curls Curl Bar- 4 sets descending in weight.
    Set 1- 50lb curl barX6 reps/Set 2- 40lb curl barX8reps/Set 3- 30lb curl barX10 reps/Set 4- 20lb curl bar to failure, I got 14 reps

    It was very tough to get through the last sets of each exercise, I could feel lingering effects of the cold that Iím getting over.
    I feel very pumped and very, very tired. Tomorrow, itís back on the bike (yay! finally!) and the work out week starts back on Monday on schedule.

    I rode the bike on the rollers last night for about forty six minutes to burn and get a feel of how my legs were. Today was chest/lats/triceps day. As usual I did abs and/or lower back to warm up.

    Chest
    Straight bar flat bench press- 5 sets descending in weight
    155lbsX6 reps/135lbsX6 reps/115lbsX8reps/95LBSX10reps/75lbsX12 reps

    Straight bar incline bench press- 4 sets descending in weight
    105lbsX6 reps/95lbsX8 reps/85lbsX10 reps/75lbsX12 reps

    Lats
    Seated Lat pull downs (upper angle) cable and narrow V bar- 4 sets descending in weight
    *90lbsX6 reps/70lbsX8 reps/50lbsX10 reps/40lbsX12 reps

    Seated Lat pulls to stomach (lower angle) wide straight bar- 3 sets descending in weight
    70lbsX6 reps/50lbsX8 reps/40lbsX10 reps

    Triceps
    Standing overhead Triceps extension cable and narrow V bar- 3 sets descending in weight
    70lbsX8 reps/50lbsX10 reps/40lbsX12 reps

    Tomorrow I do intervals for an hour on the bike.

    *I made strength gains in my lats today with a jump to 90lbs at the start. Tape measure wise I have gained size in my claves.

    Saturday - Two hours on the TT bike

    Sunday - Two hours on the hill climb bike

    Monday - 40 minted on the rollers, weights and core


    Time to start dialing it up for race season. That means more TT bike time, harder interval sessions, yadda yadda. Will post up some of the workouts I find more entertaining.

    Would you guys add your stretching regimen to your workouts?

    Im going back to my normal stretching regimen for cycling stretches that is roll quads straight on and roll at small angles until I flip to do the hams then do a pigeon pose for ~2-5 minutes per side.
    I finish it off stretching as long as I can toe to fingertip with deep breathes and then whatever this is called.

    when I do weights I use targeted stretches and generally don't foam roll.

    Guess the thread is losing steam?

    Good mid-week training here. Starting to do more time at 100-105% FTP efforts which over the next month will work toward CP20 level efforts with VO2max stuff worked in as we get ready for TT season. Different interval routines to keep it interesting on the eMotions.

    My FTP is 240w so 190w is "tempo" and 240 is FTP or LT (determined by MLSS testing). So for anyone following the workouts and wanting to duplicate them or modify them, if I say FTP / LT / 100% those terms all mean 240w. Tempo means 190-200. Recovery rides are done "butt slow" and I keep those under 150w and watch the heart rate. I have a max HR of about 172 and these indoor intervals, the final ones will kick me up to about 165-167.

    Tuesday: 5 x 6 min @100-105% Do these warming up for ten minutes, then 6 minutes on and 4 min recovery. Repeat for an hour. This workout is nice as you get the mental break avery six minutes and the time flies along. Can do more or fewer intervals depending on where you are at in training.

    Wednesday: an hour alternating every 7 minutes between tempo and FTP. Warm up then 7 min at 80%, 7 min at 100%, 7m at 80%, 7m at 100% and so on. For riders who need mental breaks, this workout can be done as three or four 14 minute blocks of 7 tempo, 7 FTP, recover as the unit of work. Again, depending on fitness and tenacity one can increase or decrease the units to keep it interesting. 5 on / 5 off is a good starter. As one improves fitness the time at tempo can be reduced with time at FTP increasing until one is doing the typical 2x 20, 2x 30, 1 x 45 type efforts.

    Thursday: a bit of leg fatigue here so a funky workout to keep focus: 10 minute warm-up then 3 minutes at 100-105%, 1 min recovery, 1 min power grind (70-75 RPM, big gear). Repeat that unit for 45 minutes then cool down.

    Friday + Saturday I have time and can get outdoors so will do some TT bike sweetspot (e.g. just riding) and some hill repeats on the road bike riding a hilly loop. Sunday is snow / rain so 90 min on the rollers. Monday is rest.

    FWIW - the core of my training is the type of workouts above. In season I'll throw in more VO2max type work (8 x 3min type stuff). I don't do sprint focused work (TT'ers don't sprint much) but I do rides where I'll throw in a bunch of jumps or telephone pole intervals just to keep the legs in touch with the concept of "jumping hard". If I were doing crits there would be a lot more VO2 and sprint / jump type stuff. 30/30s, telephone poles, corner bursts, etc.

    AM still throwing in light weight lifting for upper body (biceps, triceps, lats, bench, rows, clean/jerk) plus core (7-10 minutes planking and mtn climbers) and will do that all season for health / strength reasons. My circuit takes about 20-25 minutes and is fun to add in on easy days.

    Hope someone is still reading and finding this series of 1s and 0s entertaining and / or useful.

    Still here! Rough week for me, but yeah, keep posting. This is one of my go to spots now on the net, I always like to see other people's training for ideas.
    Good stuff above Mark. I need to ride more and wean myself from the gym (hard to do, good gains!) and reading your posts and other's here is
    inspiring and helpful in that goal. Keep it coming folks!

    Sounds like a good workout to keep the brain in one piece! Yes, a useful series of 1s and 0s.

    Keep up the thread! I get lot from this and the weekly ride reports. I haven't been posting here much but I am in a cycle that just keeps repeating the same workouts that I have already posted. It has been going really well but I am planning on changing things up in April. One of the biggest pluses has been putting myself on a 3 day rotation so that I don't even plan on working out the day after I've been on shift. Hard day, light day, off day. This doesn't include rides.

    Today was a hard back and tri's workout. Felt great and squeezed out some extra reps.

    Legs are stiff from yesterday's great ride. So I rolled. And rolled. I use either a lacrosse ball or the larger rogue fitness ball. The lacrosse ball just gets lost in the back of the leg if you use it on the floor. I work my back and then from the hips down to the ankles. A pull up assist band is great for pulling traction. I don't do a ton of static stretching anymore.
