    per minute each week during the first month of aerobic base building This shows you that your heart doesn t have to work as hard to pump the same amount of blood as it did before the endurance training Oxygen consumption improves too This means that your body utilizes oxygen during maximal exercise The more oxygen your body can take in and put to work the more efficient you are After aerobic endurance building interval training is integral to any program that s designed for performance and competition It s important to spend at least two months building endurance so that the body gains efficiency with storing transporting and producing energy or you may find yourself lacking the stamina required for the intensity of the interval work outs Interval training can increase aerobic and anaerobic capacity By exposing active muscles to high intensity exercise repeatedly the body improves its resistance to fatigue Endurance increases as a result and riders will be able to sustain a given exercise intensity of a longer period of time It also teaches the body to recover quickly after a challenging work out Research tells us that this is important because the primary stimulus for cardiovascular improvement occurs during the recovery phase of the interval Do s and Don ts Keeping your muscles relaxed during all core movements is so important Not only does it allow for more blood to get to the muscles which brings oxygen and more energy it reduces strained muscles and soreness Here are several more helpful ideas to get you started Do Check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program Bring a water bottle or two filled with cool water Wear breathable clothing so your body cools more efficiently Stiff soled shoes are important They are more effective at pedaling That s why I fell of Mine are over six months olds and too soft from walking and other work outs Bring a towel to wipe off excess sweat Get there early to set up your bike Ask the instructor to check your bike set up Make sure he or she knows about and chronic injures you have Wear a heart rate monitor to monitor the intensity of the work out and prevent over training Be gentle with yourself Pacing is important Refrain from taking your heart rate out of your chosen training range Focus on using your diaphragm to breath In through your nose and out through your mouth Not only is it more efficient it s relaxing Relax and allow your body to move without tension Don t Skip meals during the day and then decide to ride at high intensities The better fuel you have on board the better your engine will run Did you knw that skipping breakfast throws the body into a fasting mode Ack It thinks there s no food available so it starts storing fats Isn t science amazing Ride with tense muscles Get in the habit of checking yourself for signs of tensing up Some of the signs can be noticing your shoulders up around your ears hands gripping the handlebars too tightly and holding your breath Worry about keeping up with the group Be a rebel with a cause and follow your own fitness goals even if it means sitting down when everyone else is standing up Ignore the instructors attempts to show you the correct hand positions and riding form Performing the movements incorrectly can lead to bad habits and serious injury Ride with no resistance on the flywheel except when it s a warm up or cool down portion of the ride Keep quiet If you have questions about spinning ask the instructor for assistance Avoid over training No matter how careful I am with form and paying attention to my body I always manage to over train one part or another and a few times end up having some physical therapy to help me work through it strengthen the part I strained and how to head it off at the pass if I feel the same symptoms coming on again Physical therapy is so far advanced today that recovery is usually brief for people who maintain a healthy weight and exercise program Recently I came across some ways to recognize over training hopefully so I can prevent it What follows is a list of your body s warning signs Elevated morning heart rate Your morning heart rate should be recorded before getting out of bed for three mornings in a row and then averaged to determine your normal waking heart rate If your normal waking heart rate is 10 above normal your training that day should be recovery or rest More than 10 requires a total rest period until your heart returns to normal Lack of motivation You might attribute this to being lazy but physical fatigue will cause mental burnout If you think it s laziness try a 10 to 15 minute warm up at a heart rate of 50 65 of maximum If you don t feel normal after that stop your work out and go home Emotional factors Stress will wreck havoc with your normal emotional balance If you re unusually cranky or moody have trouble concentrating feel depressed regularly fly off the handle at the drop of a pin your body is telling you it needs a break from your stressful routine Physical factors Insomnia lowered appetite lowered sex drive irregular digestive and blood sugars persistent muscle soreness joint stiffness especially in the lower back and knees If any of these symptoms are present you have to reduce your normal training Health factors A sore throat is the first indicator of a more serious illness Once you have a full blown cold it takes two weeks to completely clear out of your system If you have any signs of even less than perfect health do not exercise at all Resume your training when the symptoms are gone There are two hormones secreted by the
