LOADED AND HIGH - TRAINING SECRETS

TODD BROWN Bike Life


GETTING LOADED AND RIDING HIGH, THAT'S SOME OF MY BEST TRAINING.  And why not, I live in a state where that's a great thing to do... and totally legal!

Wednesday are my preferred days, kind of a destresser mid-week... leaving around 4:20 if possible - wink, wink, nod, nod.

Most of the time, it involves dirt.

For this training to pay off...

I LOAD up my bike with very full water bottles and LOAD up my pockets.  I don't need all that water and gear but the point is to weigh myself and my bike down.  The idea is make my steed feel like a pig.

Then I GET HIGH.  Ideally, it's one long steady climb.  The second best option is to do a bunch of shorter climbs in succession.  My goal here is to keep my heart rate just under 160bmp, the top end of my zone 3.

This is a great weekly work out,
building power and endurance.
What did you think it was?

Only needed 1 of these bottles.

Ran into Craig on his sweet hardtail turned gravel bike.
