Now that I’m an official Stages Indoor Cycling Master Educator, I figured I needed to create an Audio Profile so you can hear how I teach one of my Power classes. My profile is “Racing Your FTP”. The goal is very simple; beat your FTP or “Threshold Check” numbers on every set. The ride will consist of two warm up songs, a “Threshold Check”, and three efforts of around 12,
Are you riding one of the new Indoor Cycles with Power?
ICI/PRO Instructors teaching on the Keiser M3, FreeMotion S11.9, Stages SC3, ICG-7, or StarTrac Spinner Blade Ion will find all the information for effectively training with power + dozens of fun and effective class Profiles below.
– My original objective of the Power blog here in ICI/PRO was to build the case for power precept upon precept, slowly but surely. Good idea, except for folks who already find themselves teaching on power bikes and are anxious to get to the meat & potatoes. So, as the line in Monty Python’s Holy Grail said (whilst preparing to throw the Holy Hand Grenade) “Skip ahead brother…” The most
Sixteen weeks, countless hours on the bike, more Yoga & Pilates than I thought I’d ever see, and all the 40+ VO2 tests later, the results are finally in. The Winter Training program based on Cycling Fusion Training principles, at Global Ride has produced results that have exceeded even the most ambitious expectations set. These results were not relegated to just the first season participants either. From our newbies to
How steep is a 4% grade? 8%? Over 10%? How do I effectively explain % of grade to my class? What are the feelings I would experience climbing different % grades on a bicycle? And finally, how do I effectively communicate that feeling to my class? Every July we hear commentators Phil Liggett, Paul Sherwin and Bob Roll discuss how the Tour de France is won or lost in the mountains. Just
Every year it’s the same. We all have high aspirations that the weather will be nice enough to ride what’s called the Minnesota Ironman Bicycle Ride. Not a true Ironman (no swimming or running thank God), this Ironman is the first large, organised/supported ride of the season. It gets its name from the notoriously crappy weather we normally have here in Minnesota the last Sunday in April and the foolish

Week #2 of my Performance Cycle class and I introduced the concept of using your stage average watts as a “riding buddy” today + had a nice email when I got home. Hi John- Thank you so much for the great class this morning. I took a picture of my results when I was finished. My avg watts was 148, not 212. I have no clue where I got that
It’s finally time to take a look inside. First I have to apologize for taking almost 2 months to report on results that were secured after just 4 weeks of data collection. That’s part of the problem with Evidence Based Cycling; once you do herd all those cats on bikes (see last post) and send them on their way to collect data, you have to eventually herd them over again

The information below is from my upcoming book Ride Inside which will be published by VeloPress and Available on shelves in late November 2019 The Power Meter When looking at the intensity of exercise, especially in the world of cycling, power is the ultimate metric. As we will explain later in Chapter 9, there are times where heart rate is a better metric to use, but overall all, cyclists

I (Joey) have read Climb! and I recommend the book, again both for indoor and out. How does one train for a mountain bike stage race, a hard
