    If you keep this info coming “Pedalmag” these (bike coaching ignoramuses) will know as much as I already do (obviously a slow cycling news day).

    It has been interesting for me to watch these ” know nothing pseudo coaches” screw up in training with their unlucky naive charges.

    As an example I keep suggesting to the OCA about executing their SPRING training campaign properly but it goes into one ignorant ear and out the other deaf, hard headed, ear.

    Forgive them, “oh gods of cycling” for living in, and for being surrounded by an ocean of coaching ignorance and therefore they do not know (and perhaps not care to know) what they doeth BADLY.

    I’m wondering. Is anyone reading this article or comment?

    Warning, that if you read this article carefully you’ll see that “may do this” “may do that ” is everywhere. Just means that what they propose in the article is NOT absolutely, clinically or scientifically proven.

    Especially be warned if products are mentioned by commercial name as in Power Bar etc.

    Why do they only mention “eating and drinking” recovery and not rest, massage, sleep etc?. Also be weary of marketing cue words like “electrolytes” as the word and need is exaggerated and is abundant in our bodies thus less critical to athletes but more important to promote sales of products.

    They may have written this article just to subtly boost sales. You see I also use the word “may” when I’m not 100% certain.
