Ice Ice Baby: Controlling Core Temperature Before, During, and After Exercise in Hot Weather

  “All right stop, collaborate and Listen, Ice is back with…” No, no, no. Not that “Ice Ice Baby”. Exercise generates a ton of heat; about 75% of the energy you expend to propel a bicycle is lost as heat and only about 25% of it actually produces work. A hot summer environment only exacerbates the challenge. Here are some ways …

Should Cycling Power Ranges Be Adjusted For Temperature?

  Heat is an endurance athlete’s biggest enemy. A human on a bicycle only achieves 20-25% mechanical efficiency, meaning the majority of the energy you produce is lost as heat. And when the air temperature rises that heat leads to a well-documented drop in lactate threshold power output. But the question is: how does this information affect your training and …
