    Agreed, but the superman position was pretty quick too. I only mention it because "scrunched" was my default as well - slam the saddle forward and drop the front end - but moving the contact points...

    I can understand wanting to train the mental toughness element as well, but aren't 6x5x1s focused on the same area of development (raising FTP)? If so, doing whichever is more palatable may be the...

    Yeah, I happened to be down last year when it was going in and hopped into the 4 race. Fun course, tough corner-hill combo.

    I just did these last night on the trainer and like them a lot. I probably did it at 100% FTP (I haven't re-set it in a couple months, so the old numbers aren't right), but the first few weren't...

    I'm self-coached and love it. My suggestion is to buy Friel's book, The Cyclist's Training Bible, and come up with your own basic plan. Because you're both young (I assume, because of the...
