Coach your riders to optimize saddle time to get more bang for their buck with this profile! Start off with a focus on pedal stroke, then prep them for their first (of two) best 4:00 efforts. Between the two 4:00 best efforts, focus on the relationship of speed, resistance and power output.
Coach mental stamina, tenacity – mettle! – to hone their ability to stay present and focus only on the things that drive performance and help them meet their immediate goal.
For tips on how to coach mental mettle, read my article “Mental Metal” (yep, I’m using Metal and Mettle!).
P.S. Let me know how you like the playlist. I got great feedback on it from my riders. I’m especially digging “Dogstar”.
Have fun and stay awesome!
