How To Ride Your Bike Without Getting Tired

published on July 17, 2020

You could say tiredness and fatigue is part of cycling and I guess they are but what we can do is delay the onset of fatigue in tiredness and prevent some tricks and tips to get you riding for longer and faster now this is my favorite one and it doesn't even volved

This bike no it involves this one but oh boy this way you can sleep right at the same time go then duck I guess I'll see you in the next video well no it's being dropped

right let's kick off with an obvious one resting now most cyclists or most athletes for that matter focus on their training as the main aspect actually resting is where you repair strengthen

And rebuild your muscles you need to rest to enable you to get better fitter and stronger so make sure if you're just getting into training or you're a committed trainer that you put in those rest days into your schedule now the

Other thing is listen to your body you know if you wake up and you feel shattered then take the day off is no need to push yourself it's actually getting beneficial to your training if you make sure you rest let those muscles

Repair and rebuilt ah today's one of those rest days I could just relax and well taking the sound of the birds well here at GCM we're using whoops so we're well side dan Jerry they all know how much rest I'm getting so yes put

Your feet up rest and don't feel guilty oh yeah while you're at it why not just go through GCN's Bank your videos this is where I need a television they're warming up is a really effective way to

Prepare your body and combat the onset of tiredness it can be ten minutes really really simple all you have to do well is pedal not putting out many watts and just kind of loosening up the muscles but warming up is also really

Effective at raising your body temperature and your metabolic rate waking your body up so you're firing on all cylinders when you get going getting in a good routine about practicing yoga or even stretching will help you combat

That effect of tiredness right I've had my morning coffee now for a bit of yoga right one two three up apologize for Yogi's out there but I've been practicing engaging the core

And look at that oh it like damn it yoga well dehydration can really impact performance and it can also lead to muscle cramps muscle fatigue and generally just eat away in your energy stores so making sure you're topped up

On those fluids is absolutely imperative what I tend to do is drink around about a bottle an hour to before exercise when you're on the biking going I always tend to try and stick to one bottle our little and often so keep sipping

Throughout our and try and get that bottle finished within that hour it's also worth remembering the more you sweat the more you're going to lose those salts and those minerals so making sure you get them back in is absolutely

Key so your hydration and that's where are these electrolyte drinks come in really handy so you can get this in a tab form or powder form super easy to use chuck it in your bottle give it a shake you're good to go

Right prepare my bottle for the ride just like program fueling is also a really important part to be able to maintain physical exertion I mean think of it like putting petrol or gas in your car where your car's not gonna do too

Well running on empty and your body is very much the same so keeping topped up on food and fuel will enable you to write faster and for longer timing is also really important eat too much before you go on a ride that we and

You'll feel sluggish bloated and you'll also get a stitch yeah not very pleasant so give yourself an hour or two before we head out on the bike to eat yourself a good meal and let your digestive system work its magic right

Very simple meal here excuse me guys sorry for those longer rides of more an hour then it's worth taking food with you so it's taking some sport nutrition bars and gels will help you keep those carb those glucose those sugar level

Nicely topped up throughout your ride the longer the ride though the more food you'll need to take to make sure you packed some good food off we go oh just 20 miles from home one thing I will say is make sure you pace your effort don't

Come up with this elaborate plans big elaborate Roo go out too hard too early because you'll only end up struggling to make it home so work your way up to those longer rides and go nice and easy nice and steady and make sure we get to

The finish using something like this a bike computer or a bike head unit will help you track the distance you're going and the speed you're going at now this is really useful when you're heading out on a route you know exactly how long on

That route is left that way you don't go too hard too early using a heart rate monitor is also a really good way to manage your exertion so you can use those heart rate zones just to see what to manage those work out so you don't

Overexert yourself so I'll put that back on there I'm good to go taking breaks is another great way to ensure you stayin out of the red and you're managing your tiredness so don't

Be afraid listen to your body and if you feel that bit tired on a ride then take your break sit down relax get your breath back regroup and then you can go again all right five minute nap and I'll be

Good to go try riding with a friend or weather group the great thing about cycling is it's a sociable sport you can have a good conversation while exercising and it's also good because it well it

Distracts you from the workload you're putting out I mean I've been on big group rides got back home and just realize how far I've been because I've been so engrossed in the conversation I mean it looks a bit odd because I'm on

My own and I'm telling you guys to ride with friends or with a group but in actual fact well what I've got you with me through the camera and I've also got my lovely creator film camera you and lastly choose a good time to ride some

People love the mornings they feel energized they hear the bird seen the Sun rising and they're super motivators fair right others what like the evening rise where they feel they've done a good day's work and they're liking seeing the

Sun going down making sure you're maximizing all that energy is really important what I would say though is shy away from the night riding your body's ready to rest sleep and your energy levels will be quite low so unless

You're like me and while you take on rather stupid challenges through the night then what I would keep – morning or early evening right if I were you now getting a good routine and try and put some of these tips into practice and

Now I hope that will help you last that little bit longer on the bike if you enjoyed this video and it's helped then make sure you give it a thumbs up and if there's something I missed that you think deserves to be in this list then

Let me know yeah you know in that comment section below and I guess well I'll see you in the next video I mean how cool is this shot see if I can let go you ready yep yep yes bit scary actually leave that for next time

Right Ciao Bella oh now the videos done it's a or now for my taxi home dad look dad dad dad
