yeah, bro. I was just telling Slater last week about your workouts. How you go VO2 and then Sweet Spot and do repeats. I told him that is what I have to do when I ride with him. He hits it and I have to go VO2 to bridge up to him and then Sweet Spot to hold his wheel. He turns around and I am the only one in the group that is able to bridge up to him and hold his wheel. LOL! Those are really good workouts for road riding! I am not even racing but it seems like it trying to grab Slater"s wheel and he isn't even in top shape right now!!!

check out this stuff out. it's basically what i've been following. Frank Overton is, in my opinion, one of the best coaches out there. keeps it simple and is all about sweet spot. he has a lot of great plans for sale as well. i like that he shares all his info and now has a rad podcast and you tube channel.

yeah, I have actually looked into doing those pretty soon I just don't feel I am at that level yet(but getting close). But one thing is for sure the Trainer is just steady and like he says that is not what happens in real life as the road has climbs and wind and the pack surges. I was also looking at a Podcast about over/unders and criss/cross. I guess they were saying technically over/unders are when you go over FTP and then come back under and Criss/Cross is when you surge to FTP and then come back down maybe to Sweet Spot. But pretty much the same thing. I have read about Frank and know he is a good coach. I just recently found out he is also Phil Gaimon's coach as well. He is well known as a coach. I will start following him on Youtube!

Thanks!
