    (Not snark, but just saying) This track thread is in the Racer's subforum, so most of the people who post here are going to be into racing or training for racing.

    I've found Creatine to be great for the gym, though the amount I had to take was quite high and it wasn't cheap. It definitely made recovery between sets much, much better, and I had a lot more...

    5 x 5's the Texas method from practical programming, though it has one heavy day, one moderate day, one light day if you're training 3 days a week. (Public service announcement, HTH, etc)

    Does anybody know if the Sugino rings are forged or not? I've always thought that was the process responsible for the difference in price between Sugino/DA and others like FSA.

    I would kinda advise keeping your eye on legspeed if you're gonna use a rower to train on, as given the technique about 40 strokes a minute is a good optimum stroke rate for getting power down - much...

    Frankly I just scrounge Specialized ones from bike shops, that have a bag of them lying around - the orange ones are the ones you're after, they're easy to get, relatively cheap, and because...

    If you try a pair of forefoot wedges you can use a bit less "stuff" under the arch - 6 of one and half a dozen of the other can lead to a good comfortable solution. The forefoot wedge will make the...

    Hi,
    Concept 2s are the only ones worth getting in the long run. Best display, best resistance and the range is good. They're about 2 grand new (Australian) Used it is pretty much up to the person...
