Don’t just ride the bike

December 16, 2015

To cycle better, we need to be strong. Not only on the bike but also through our whole body – today was a day that included a full body weight workout after a tough 20 minute interval session. I’m trying to focus on hitting every muscle group in the body including legs and trying to build explosive power in the multi-joint movements I am doing.

Today was a good day! It’s now hours later and I can still feel the lasting effects of the work in the gym. I’m making sure to eat well – lots of vegan protein powder, homemade seitan, veggies and of course the fats that are important to overall well being – I’m shooting for a 30/40/30 split (Protein, Carbs, Fats) right now. My goal is to build a solid muscular body and strip away the layers of fats that have set up shop on my frame. I’ll of course keep an eye on my overall weight so as not to gain any.

Tomorrow is a travel day for work so it’s up early to get my ride on the rollers in and then make sure I pack the best food possible. Meal planning is going to have to be a way of life going forward if I am to find success. I’ve always believed you can’t out-train a bad diet. Now I’m trying my best to plan it then eat it.

ending line…. today was a good day, but tomorrow is going to be even better!
