Zwift is a third-party online training tool allowing cyclists of all abilities to ride with and against others in an interactive virtual environment. While many cyclists use Zwift year-round, many choose to train with Zwift and other online interactive training tools such as ErgVideo during the colder months of the year.
It is clear that high ambient or body temperatures can greatly impair athletic performance. Traditionally, the primary cause has been thought to be due to impaired cardiovascular delivery of blood to the muscles. However, many other factors are now known to contribute, from elevated brain temperature to altered neurochemistry to gut blood flow changes. This webinar will survey the multi-faceted impact of heat stress on human physiology. In the second part, major countermeasures for athletes will be discussed, including the efficacy of pre-cooling, the process of heat adaptation, and the role of hydration in optimal performance.
Coach Chris Myers introduces and explains the benefits of strength training for triathletes and launch the new PCG eBook that focuses on exercises that will help your cycling, running, and swimming through the use of suspension, body weight, plyometric, and mobility exercises. These exercises are designed to be completed with only a few props, making this convenient for doing at home or at the gym.
