[quote="Darryl"]gives his legs a break when racing by focusing on certain motions during the pedal cycle and using one leg for a number fo revs while just carrying the other leg around. never read about this before. Very Happy[/quote]

It's an old drill for improving pedalling technique - by breaking down the whole cycle, and improving each bit.

No Rob I'm not talkign about one-legged drills you do in training to develop technique!
Dave Scott uses atechnique on the bike (druing RACING only) where he uses one leg more than the other and adpats the rotation so as to relieve the other leg of some of the stress. He then switches. He did it for the ironman races as it also relieves a boredom a little Very Happy

This has come at exactly the right time for me as I went to the gym for the first time yesterday (as I've mentioned elsewhere).

One word of caution though, I took it really easy. Didn't get my HR above 90, so really really easy. But today my shoulders and arms really ache. That section directly infront of your arm pit is super-sore, as are my breast bits (should learn what these bits are called - makes mental note!) I did one rotation of the gym, lifting low weights 12-15 times. Legs are fine.

So, take it easy.

rob, i reckon a pocket tv (attached between the tri-bars) would be a great addition, what do you think?
you can then watch a bit of grandstand during your long IM bike leg Very Happy

Me? In an IM? Are you mad? Twisted Evil

Yes, a TV would be quite handy on a 200Km-ride! Especially if they have live coverage of the race! Razz

Getting back to the weights conversation, I completed my third session last night, so I am pretty pleased with it. I don't hurt, but when I come to open a door or run up the stairs, I can feel the work I've done the day before. It feels good. Whether it will work or not, I don't know!

I've also got into the dirty habit of wearing my tri race t-shirts to do weights. I think I'm trying to make excuses for why I am weak.

dude

you say you want to do specific training to improve your tri performace, eg make you bike better.

like some of the exercises the guy wrote down on last page.

suggest you may want to add core strength exercises.

strong lower back/abdominal region will help all 3 tri disciplines.

get an instructor to show you some moves next time up.

finish your session with 3 or 4 exercises for the core.

your swim/bike/run will thank you for it in the summer
