How much training does it take to drop your heartbeat by 10 bpm?
I am astounded at the graphics of the cyclists in the T of CA with alot of them having resting heartbeats of 40 bpm ( I read that Indurain's was 29
I've been riding for a year and I have gotten faster, but I don't think my heartrate is any different.
How do those pros get their heartbeats freaklishly low? Is it long hours in the saddle, pushing to your lactic threshold, or both?
