As ALP coaches, we continually look for ways to make our ALP athletes (ALPletes) better, faster, and stronger. We want them to be the best they can possibly be.
Personally, when I (Alison Powers) think back to my racing and training career, I wish I had known many of the things I now know as a coach. So, that lead me to think of ways we can teach our athletes this 'high performance' knowledge so they can raise their game to the next level. With some brain storming we have come up with a new training/learning/teaching camp. The ALP Cycles High Performance Camp.
What is a high performance camp?
A long weekend (Thursday-Sunday) in Boulder, Colorado where we dial in bike fit, proper training and recovery methods, strength training form and exercises, determine weakness and start to fix those, and make sure each and every athelte is 100% prepared to kick ass in 2017. Oh, and we ride our bikes a fair amount too.
Lined up for Camp is-
-We will have a strength training (form and mobility) session at Revo in Boulder.
-Each person will have a bike fit complete with EMG- electro myography (this determines what muscles are firing and which are not) at Revo.
- A sports psychology talk about confidence and performance at the next level of competition
- A sports nutrition, recovery, and supplement talk
- On bike skills and drills
- Motor Pacing
- Technique training for sprinting, climbing, cornering, and descending
- Race tactics
- A presentation on speed and aerodynamics
- and more! It'll be a packed full 4 days.
