AirDyne Training


Yesterday I posted an interval training workout on the AirDyne. A reader asked what a normal week looked like so I thought I’d describe it here.

I ride the bike because I have had two knees surgeries and my knee joints no longer tolerate running. It is a choice made out of necessity.

In a typical week I will ride 4 times. In previous years I would do

4×1 mi

5 mi timed

6-8 x.5 mi

3 mi timed.

I generally don’t ride on Sunday so I would ride 4 out of 6 days. After beginning my BioForce Heart Rate Variability program I realized that four hard rides a week was too much. I now do:

6-8 x .5

a 3 or 5 mi timed ride

Two 7 mi rides trying to keep my heart rate under 150 BPM. I hate these easy, recovery days but have added them to see if I feel better and, I must admit, I do.

Hope this helps.
