My Wattbike Disaster (to teach you PACING)

There’s one thing, which can completely undermine your fitness/conditioning/cardio training

 

And as the world becomes more aware of ‘H.I.T’ and interval training, there’s one thing you maybe lacking

 

So….

 

This morning me and Coach/Trainer Ed were set…

Me on the Wattbike in the gym, him on camera, ready for a Facebook video on:

 

How to pace right, to get biggest bang for buck from your fitness/conditioning/cardio

 

HOWEVER!

 

The sensor went loose and half way in I realised my data wasn’t been recorded

Which meant the video could no longer be used

(and I would expose myself to it all over again later this week! #hero)

 

But the topic of PACING is super important for you

 

If you’re a Solihull based recreational sporting warrior, or Birmingham based keyboard warrior just wanting to drop those confidence sapping pounds

 

So we as humans pace both consciously and subconsciously

 

Using experience, physiological feedback, motivations and other senses to inform what pace we think we should exercise at for a given task

 

Pioneered by much of the work done by Prof Tim Noakes (who’s kind of like the Einstein of exercise physiology, minus the large head)…

 

The last decade has enabled us to determine how you can attack your fitness training from a pace perspective, to make it count as much as possible

 

So here are my top 4, laser guided, heat seeking knowledge bombs to master your pacing:

 

  1. Unless doing a session which has a total amount of work of ~2.5 minutes, don’t go ‘all out’

 

  1. For most interval type sessions with 4-8 minutes of work, kick out your opening rep at approx. 80% of maximum effort

 

  1. As the minutes progress your effort will increase, due to fatigue creeping in, and the need to fight to hold your pace. So by the last quarter you’re going to feel like your flat out, 100%

 

  1. Use distance covered, time to cover a distance, average watts or any such objective information as feedback so you can see the ACTUAL pace you’re at, not what you THINK

 

Speak shortly
