Want to have more power and drop your buddies on the weekend ride? Or ride faster on your commute so that you have more time for the family when you get home? Or maintain your fitness as birthday after birthday rolls around? Or build endurance for a tour in the summer or for a fall century?
But you’re not paid to train and race! You don’t have a lot of time. What to do? If you want to ride faster and have more power you need a bigger engine. How can you get a bigger human engine, a V-6 or even a V-8, instead of your fuel-efficient but relatively weak V-4?
By training at different intensities you can get an engine that’s not just bigger, but better − with greater acceleration, more power and better mileage. You may notice some differences from earlier articles of mine. This is because I’ve incorporated the latest research in this article.
