There’s 3 main factors that have to work in perfect harmony to get the best results on the bike.
Training (both on and off the bike)
All need to be focused on to get the best results. You could rate your sleep and your training a 9/10…but if your nutrition
is only a 4/10?
You’ll be far from your potential.
Same with if you are nailing your training and eating great… but you aren’t taking any rest days and only sleep for 5 hours a night.
To get the best results you need to put an almost equal emphasis on each of these factors.
The best starting point :
Rate yourself out of 10 on all 3 of the above factors.
If all are equal, say a 6/10, then put a goal in place to improve all of them by one or two points.
Something like this :
Nutrition > Eat 8 portions of veggies everyday
Sleep > Get to bed for 10pm
Training > Start doing 1x interval training session each week
Those may be your goals. Stick at those for 2 weeks and then reassess and see where you are up to and set new goals.
It’s STUPID simple – but makes such a key difference
If you are honest, when was the last time you actively assessed those three areas?
If you are skewed and you rate one factor WAY lower than the other 2 then keep the others the same, and focus on bringing up that lagging factor.
Making it a focus will really help
This is one of the really simple things I do with clients to help them see BIG changes
