    My point wasn't about altitude sickness, but how much time people need to spend at altitude to get a benefit. When I was riding actively in california and doing endurance events, my coach would often...

    I have tried Tabata intervals and like them a lot. They work well for me because when one muscle group gets tired, we move to the next one, etc. That way I don't get too sore in any one area. Last...

    When I bring down...
