Calling all cycling coaches

Mark.ScpMark.Scp Posts: 514
Hi all,

as part of my assignment, i have to coach a session to another person. I have chosen cycling, as it is my own sport, with the intention of coaching interval training, through the use of a trainer.

I have to incorporate some different teaching styles, although i am a bit snookered to how i can do this... 1 on 1 coaching interval training on a turbo...

So, please give me some advice as it will be GREATLY appreciated - through the means of an e-cookie! :)

Thanks all

Mark

    Well, since individual intervals range in duration from 15 seconds to ~20 minutes, you could offer an alternative daily interval program that incorporates intervals of different durations. Bare in mind that the most intense/short intervals should always come first, with the longest coming last.
    IOW:
    Monday: 15'on/15'off for 10 mins - rest and repeat.
    Tuesday: 10 x 1 minute intevals with 3 minutes recovery between each.
    Wednesday: 5 x 5 minutes with 5 mins rec between
    Thursday: 2 x 20 minutes with 5 mins rec in between.

    There you go, all you need to do now is research the physiological energy systems in which these intervals will create adaptations, and work out what intensity to do them.

    Should be able to pick up something on intervals here:

    And here for your scientific research:

    What are you studying and where?
    You have taken the easy route [:D] I am surprised your tutors have not made you pick a different sport, in fact you might have found it easier [:D]
    When coaching individuals you will find you will naturally have to use different styles as each individual is different and respond to coaching differently, you could also try group coaching.

    hi,

    its @ filton college in Bristol.. u will probably know..

    I only have one day to coach the session, and it will be to one person....but i imagine there is only 1 coaching style that can be used....whereas in a group situation it can be varied..

    Thanks
