60 Min Recovery Ride
Equipment: Indoor Cycling Bike
This Spin® workout is long, steady, easy, and may feel “monotonous.” Good! “Monotonous” is a critical part of being an athlete.
Progressive overload during training is used to disturb homeostasis in an attempt to improve fitness performance. Short-term training sessions (one hour in length) result in acute fatigue and short-term performance decrements. When you build in recovery sessions, you create what is known as “functional overreaching.” This state leads to improved exercise performance.
However, when athletes fail to respect the balance between training and recovery, the first symptoms of prolonged training distress will occur. This is referred to as “non-functional overreach,” and can lead to physiological and psychological disturbances.
BUILD IN RECOVERY!! It is as critical as the overload.
*Don’t forget to stretch!*
