Jeeze, I am toast! (Great workout though!)

I am recovering from the Gym tonight.....

We did Speed interval drills. Talk about a workout! 45 seconds at max effort through the stations, pushing the weights, etc and fast and hard as you can, or doing lunges, or doing the dip on a bench. Overhead press is done with dumbells, while sitting on a balance ball, by the way.

It's the toughest 2 hour workout I ever did. Each cycle through the station was separated with a 1 mile power walk, as well and then repeat the stations. I feel like jello right now, but I also have the best workout buzz I've had in a while

Well, now you will be in shape to carry your bike and/or walk your bike when you need to, I don't quit know how the lunges work into this. Sounds like a great workout, keep up the good work, that 300 miler is coming up.

Lunges work on Quads and adductors, and help avoid overdevelopment of the quads in particular. That can be a problem with cyclists, and cause issues in the IT Band as well as lower back from asymmetric stress on the SI joint...........

Here's some info that explains IT Band better than I can.

Thanks Tom. I do lunges four times a week and it is good to know everything they do for me.

I have under-developed, inflexible biceps femoris. Need to work on that. A couple of years ago I got a bad case of tendonitis and had to sit out a few months.

Man, I know ALL about Biceps Tendinitis. Light weight freeweight dumbells will help, but I'd suggest contacting an Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist to get the specific exercises, since if you do the wrong ones or have incorrect form, it will make it worse.

Tom, I was just being tongue-in-cheek about the lunges.

No, no, I meant the hamstrings!

Incredible, Tom! How many days a week are you subjecting yourself to this torture?

3 days a week. I'll go til I adapt and then back off for a bit and maintain. I'm taking every other day for recovery, by the way and just doing gentle spinning then to work out lactic acid.

OK, that's different.....

Straight squats will help with that, don't let the knees exceed 90º bend......don't go all the way to the floor, basically and do them in short intense 45 second bursts and walk easy for 15 seconds and then repeat as part of your workout....do a few sets. Warm up first and get yourself stretched out before you start this.
