The Assault Air Bike

I don’t get excited about a new product very often but the Assault Air Bike is the souped up AirDyne we always wished someone would make (and it’s not a Schwinn). I know, it looks just like the AirDyne but that is until you look closely. Every part of the old AirDyne that broke down has been changed. The pedal assembly is one piece which is key. I’ve been on it for three week and love it. A word of caution, they changed the gears and it is much harder. By my estimates 40% harder. This means harder workouts and more durability.  The bike has a built in Tabata ( 20/10) and a built in 10/20 for quick, tough rides. Get one and ride it, you’ll be sold. We are going to get 9 more soon.

How Much is Too Much Hockey?

The scary part about this article is that a lot of us can read this and know we participate in this foolishness.

Thanks to Ken Campbell for writing this.

Maximum Aerobic Speed Intervals

Posted in Uncategorized on January 22, 2014 by mboyle1959

The concept of maximum aerobic speed has come up more frequently in the literature. Dan Baker defined it as the average speed over a six minute time trial. I have modified this to be the average speed on a 3 mi AirDyne test. The test takes just over 7 minutes for a well conditioned athlete on a small fan model. By establishing the maximal aerobic speed you can assume that this corresponds to the velocity at V02 max. By doing this you can then get 120% for your interval work.

In my case Maximum Aerobic Speed = Level 7

120% = Level 8.4

Today I did 6x.5 mi at level 8.4 with recovery down to 110 Beats Per Minute.
