A great run by Kat to add another PB performance to he results over the past 12 months. This performance is the result of the hard and smart work she has been putting in over the past 12 months. I couldn’t be happier for her. #Repost @runningonvegetables with @get_repost ・・・ SUB 2HRS!!!!!!! 1hr 57 @ 5.33/km pace 🔥🔥🔥🔥 @hoppersportsperformance treadmill sessions have been paying off 😏💁🏻 can't wait to see how much faster you can make me 😝. well done @terronator and Sophie also smashing PBs 😎 @teamrunderwear also worked a treat 😉 I survived unscathed . . . . . . . . . . . #triathlon #ironmantraining #hurtingsucks #ironmantri #trilife #trigirl #trichicks #foherco #run #runninggirl #running #womenfortri #dontruncommando #teamrunderwear #fitness #fitperthlife #exercise
This is a great example of how looking at incomplete data can cause you to make totally incorrect decisions. This is something that is happening regularly in the coaching and sports analysis world at the moment. One coach thinks only power maters, another only HR, another only RPE and so on. The fact is they areal play an important part in the bigger picture of athletic performance. Don't lose sight of the forest through the trees #ironmantraining #triathlonmotivation #marathontraining #cyclingtraining #triathlontraining
As a coach that be a like living in a dream world. Fact is most athletes never execute these sessions properly. How many of you are strong enough to put your ego aside and ride the small chainring on flat? 😉 #ironmantraining #triathlonmotivation #marathontraining #cyclingtraining #recovery
A sneak peek into some of the work we are doing for some athletes behind the scenes 🤓😉 #ironmantraining #triathlonmotivation #cyclingtraining #hoppersportsperformance
What actually is lactate threshold/FTP? Ultimately it’s the balance point between your Aerobic (VO2max) and Anaerobic (VLamax) systems. The only way to improve performance at lactate threshold is to change the performance of one of these 2 systems. The only way to know which system you should focus on is through metabolic testing. We provide metabolic testing which informs you which system you should focus on. Contact us today for more information. #ironmantraining #cyclingtraining #cyclingtips #ftptest #marathontraining #hoppersportsperformance
Knowing your VLamax is key to improving your your FTP and overall performance. Why? Simply put FTP is composed of a mix of VO2max and VLamax. With the help of INSCYD we test both of these metrics which allows us to take the guesswork out of making you faster. #ironmantraining #cyclingtraining #marathontraining
