INDOOR TRAINING: HOW MUCH RECOVERY FOR 30-SECOND SPRINTS?

Lee,
Great article (Indoor training: Do this once a week). I have been doing a very similar type of sprint training. The only difference is that I do 30 seconds all out and 1 minute rest (you recommend more recovery time; is a shorter time worse/harder for you or your body?).

Hey Lee, thanks for the indoor training article.

I’ll look to integrate your ideas with the DB Combo program at the start of Jan. when I make my monthly adjustments.

Cheers Greg

I NEED HELP IN FLAT TURNS!

Hey Lee,
I was on your site a while back with places to ride your DH bike. Anyway I purchased a Demo 7 1. I can rail berms—Kessel Run in Fruita was incredible. I pull myself forward and down in berms—works great—but when I try this in flat corners I get all balled up. Especially in right turns. I ride left foot forward if that helps. I tighten up, can’t barely make it and usually end up in a bush. What am I doing wrong?

4 REASONS TO RIDE FLAT PEDALS ON YOUR TRAINER

If you’re not injured, and it isn’t snowing in your neighborhood, I hope you’re out ripping (go NorCal!). But if you, like me, are tied to the trainer, this is a great time to experiment.
