HAVE YOU STARTED THE WORKOUT YET? The rocks in my skull shifted… workout… workout… hmmmm…
The Maximum Overload workout?
Not yet. Don’t have the book yet. Did you?
Yes!… go easy. This is the first day in a week that I can barely walk.
Haha… okay, will do. Thanks Jim!
Here’s the problem, as cyclists we are fit. As athletes, we are terrible. Cycling is a restricted motion. If you don’t mix it up and stretch you’re asking for trouble. But, you won’t know you’re asking because you won’t breathing hard or even hurting when you try something new.
I was paralyzed the day after the annual turkey bowl, one year.
This off-season I’m definitely going to back the miles down and work on strength. I’m going to start with the aforementioned book. It should arrive tomorrow. I’m going to get a trainer to make sure my form is correct.
Today, to prep, I did some of the exercises Jim was talking about: lunges and step-ups. However… I did them sans any weight. Just stretching the muscles out, checking my form. And, that was after 30 minutes on the MTB doing some big ring, out of the saddle climbing.
Have you started?
175 – this is a guess, left my scale in UT.
