Basically, during the 5 days of the week. Mon - Friday. I wake up. Pop a caffeine tablet and hop on the trainer for an hour, my main goal is to get faster/stronger. I ride for an hour after my mid-day class usually, then head off to work.
My average heart rate is around, 149-153 bpm in my morning workouts and I've gotten up to 165 bpm. (Age 18 , Max HR: 202 bpm, 141 lbs, 5'8)
I had a couple of questions.
1) Is this detrimental in any way? I've heard that working out in a fasted state has it's benefits.
2) What should I consume before/after the workouts? Usually I train fasted, head off to class for 2 hours then head back and have some oatmeal.
3) I NEVER drink water on the bike, is this bad? Since I'm only training for an hour, I usually drink afterwards.
4) Is there a specific heart rate zone I should aim for?
I'm sure there are more questions.
