Preparation 1.2 Training Report


This was the first week of structured training with a strength coach at a local gym. The primary focus of the three weekly workouts over the next 30 weeks will be overall strength and conditioning for the triple record attempts. The first eight-week block focuses on periodized muscular endurance.

Monday’s strength workout focuses on reviewing last week’s workouts. Wednesday’s five-exercise workout focuses on my anterior muscle group with Machine Seated Chest Press, Machine Leg Press, Machine Seated Leg Extension, Dumbbell Bicep Curl, and Band Pallof Press. Friday’s six-exercise workout focuses on my posterior muscle group with Machine Seated Leg Curl, Machine Seated Abduction, Machine Seated Hip Adduction, Machine Seated Neutral Grip, Machine Tricep Pushdowns, and Suspension Mid Row.

My psychologist asked me to start taking notes of any lapses in concentration during my trike workouts. She also wants me to explore using a music playlist synced to my pedal cadence during any trike workouts lasting more than three hours.

HIGHLIGHTS: All cycling sessions were completed indoors with my recumbent trike on a Kinetic by Kurt Road Machine smart trainer + Rouvy application.
