    two a day workouts - same or different?

    i can't really find a good answer on this. friel suggests two a day workouts are fine, however, he also stresses the need to be recovered in between workouts.

    so, what would be best: do the same workout at night as in the morning? do a harder workout in the morning and a recovery ride at night?

    i'm just not sure...

    lighter in the morning, harder at night.

    I dont know what is recomnede for two-a-days, but i fall apart if i do intervals in the morning and spinning at night. However, im fine the other way around.

    but experiment

    I literally put our 9.11 watts/kg for 12 hours.

    You get the same benefit from two shorter workouts as you would from one long one, IF you maintain the same level of intensity.

    I would do a somewhat lighter workout in the morning, and do the harder workout in the evening, but do NOT work out right before bed.
