With the gradual increase in the use of power meters and control tools whilst training, some coaches and cyclists have also adopted a position of rejection or complete indifference to the use of heart rate, as though it was already a totally out-dated parameter. For them it seems to have no sense to record your […]

Complementary TrainingTrabajo complementario

Alternative, complementary, cross or even winter training. Cyclists have invented many names to refer to this type of activity when not in competition season. We are talking about walking, running, walking, climbing stairs, exercising with weights, auto loads, fit ball, elastic belts, jumping, swimming or skating among others.

There is a saying which goes “we are what we eat”. We are going to speak about the evident relationship between diet and our state of health.

Time to recover? ¿Es tiempo de descansar?

When autumn comes, one of the most recurring questions made to trainers by cyclists is is how long they have to stop for?

No less than 39 years ago… Nada menos que 39 años

And 39 years ago these images…. Merckx achieved over 49 km/h over one hour. Most shocking of all is to check out the technology at that time. No tri-bar extensions, no skin suit nor overshoes and without an aerodynamic helmet: No advantages in relation to those who did the hour record in the 90s such […]
