15 watts power gain in 6 weeks
For info and comment, any experienced coaches have similar data?
1.) For many reasons not to discuss here, stopped my racing season 6 weeks ago, training and racing about 12-15 hours a week.
2.) Started weights in the gym, 3 sessions per week and 3 spinning sessions 40 minutes max spinning on the non weight lifting gym days.
3.) Spinning is warm up, then 7 interval sessions 2 minutes hard as I can maintain, 2 minutes rest for each interval.
4.) Use a Cycleops 420 Pro (Powertap +-1.5% accuracy) in a conditioned room, so my watts output is always measured in exactly the same condition.
5.) In 6 weeks I am up 15 watts, with the initial plan being bumping up 5 watts every 2 weeks.
Am I just lucky, or am I just replacing endurance with strength?
