All about the base, about the base


Recommended Posts

Now that the song is stuck in your head, what have you found to work really well when building you aerobic capacity / base?


So many different methods (long slow watt bike, maffatone method, jogging, just riding more, etc)...


I have been told anecdotaly that adding a weekly slow jog pays off more than a slow cycle, with less time committed (60 minutes vs say 90+). Scientifically it shouldn't make any difference as its about your heart working in a range for a certain time, resulting in adaptation, but maybe the added muscular stress from running gives an added bonus. Or maybe I'm just over thinking this whole thing.

No. Separate. HIIT with HIIT and LISS with LISS. Maybe end off a session of LISS with a single high intensity "interval" but don't mix em.

Yeah agree. That’s why I was asking. Don’t mix in anaerobic. Wouldn’t make sense really. Thanks for the reply ????????
