We’ve got another quick profile for you, the Build Blocks of Strength and Power, this week developed by Bill Pierce. This profile will enable riders to develop their climbing skills while also challenging them to increase resistance and decrease cadence while maintaining the same intensity. It develops muscular endurance at sub-threshold and threshold levels of intensity and requires as much mental as physical strength. Riders must possess patience, discipline, and focus to get through each block.
Demonstrate the concept by stacking yoga blocks for visual learners and added drama (or use risers from step aerobics). You’ll need 9 blocks; each represents 5 minutes in duration.
