There is one thing we know from becoming both age group and professional Ironman Champions and creating them is that Ironman and even 70.3 Ironman are strength endurance events and on a course like we have here in Whistler, you need to be strong.
It doesn’t matter if you are a 15 hour Ironman or breaking anyone of the numerous hour barriers, everyone can benefit from more Ironman/70.3 specific strength development on the bike.
I have proven indoor sessions that will help you develop the type of strength and neuromuscular efficiency you need to ride strong all day in these last crucial and highly specific training weeks leading into Ironman and 70.3 Canada.
To further help your development on the bike we use a revolutionary indoor trainer called a Revbox.
What makes the Revbox unique?
1. The fan, which forms the heart of the trainer, operates almost entirely without centrifugal mass, giving the Revbox its very low inertia. This means that the athlete does not at any point in the 360° pedal stroke receive any assistance from the weight of the flywheel, as is the case with most other trainers.
This has the major advantage that all leg muscles are utilised through the entire pedal stroke. Low inertia training can best be described as riding uphill, or against the wind, where high inertia training can be compared to riding downhill or with the wind at your back.
2. The entire pedal stroke becomes audible through the sound of the fan, enabling the athlete to achieve an even and smooth pedalling motion. If the athlete succeeds in generating a sound from the Revbox that is even and constant throughout the pedal stroke, they can be sure that they are training all muscles equally. This is an invaluable advantage that no other trainer on the market can rival.
This allows you to create neuromuscular efficiency and the strength you need.
Starting June 2nd we will be hosting two classes per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) in the lead up to IMC. There will be 2 time slots and available to 5 athletes only per time slot.
All you need to do is bring your bike, and your training kit. We provide the sweat towels, the trainers, the coaching and coffee. We also have a shower and towels for you to use if you need to dash off to work.
All sessions start with preparing your body for the demands you will place upon it. We do this through both RESET exercises and Trigger Point Tools. This helps open up the neurological pathways and blood flow and oxygen to the tissues creating greater efficiency of movement.
The cost is $250 for 13 sessions
