Basic Power Zones vs Enhanced Power Zones? 

       Taking a deeper look into power zones in cycling. Coggan Classic Power Levels (Basic) vs Coggan Individual Power levels (enhanced).

       The 6 zones in the Coggan Classic Power Levels will do just fine for most people. However, the Coggan Individual levels will provide a better breakdown for the classic Zone 5/V02 Max and Zone 6/Anaerobic Capacity Power.

       By looking at the breakdown of the FRC (Functional Reserve Capacity) zones in the Coggan Individual levels , we can better prescribe Anaerobic Capacity intervals of 3 minutes or less with more specific ranges. Note each athlete’s FRC will differ in their timed ranges based on their own individual training data. Click below for more info on this topic:

Tenacity: It’s how BAD you want it!

Tenacity
How Bad You Want It👊👊👊
 
        I like to work with people who really want it bad. When I say want it bad, this is the determination to improve oneself, the ability to suffer, the ability to stay disciplined with training, and ability to be fully committed. This isn’t wanting a trophy or medal or any physical object for that matter. This is the internal validation that with the confidence and tenacity you will work for and in due time, accomplish your hard-fought goals. These goals can be fitness related, races, challenges, mental struggles, or even any feat you may not currently deem possible. It starts with really striving hard for success in one’s training and accepting the challenge to suffer and put the work in, knowing that it is preparing for a bigger goal.
 
        I really like to coach people that want it bad, because if you want it bad, then I want it just as bad. Usually in a short amount of time of coaching someone, I can tell how bad they want it. I don’t care what skill level you are; whether you are going to complete your first time up Sugarloaf Mountain Road, to riding a 30km in under 40 minutes. If you want it badly enough, we will accomplish it. As a coach, I am here to push you past your limits and guide you in the process. This coach-athlete connection will uplift each other together as the goals and barriers are conquered. This also allows you to have less to think about and ensure your work and efforts are used wisely. I say this because I know what its like to really want to accomplish a goal really bad and do it. There’s nothing better than surrounding yourself with those to help make you the best and drive you to conquer your goals.
 
        In the bike racing sense, there are many cases where a race may truly come to who wants to win the most. Who is going to take a risk and go all in with it. Who is going to take the outcome of the race into their own hands and go for glory. Last week in the sunshine gran prix, I took that chance and reminded myself to take it with confidence which ended up landing me on the top step. In this case I followed the almighty moto and did not hold anything back. I knew what I had left. The key to success in any race or in life is to:
 
Know what you got
Spare what you got
Use what you got

A logo worth a 1,000 words, literally:

        The significance behind my coaching logo comes from a little tale from about 5 years ago. It became my goal around the turn of 2012-2013 to land a podium spot for the 2013 Under 23 National Time Trial. In gearing up for that, I set out to ride my fastest 100 miles ever. In early February 2013, I heard of an event called the Gran Fondo Brevard. This was a unique event where any bike was allowed and it was treated like a 110 mile race. Immediately in my mind, I created a goal to make this event an opportunity to ride 100 miles solo as fast as I could. So I went all in for this, pulling out my Cervelo P5, skin-suit, aero helmet, and shoe covers. My previous 100 mile solo best was 3 hours 49 minutes back in November, 2012 so immediately, I created a goal to beat this. I was going for a 28.0mph average speed for the 100 miles.
