Track Cycling what's the
A Track Cyclist's Power House,
"Sympathetic Nervous System"
When we look at a breathing rate lactate program and the delicate see-saw
balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system being worked
through the Lactate tolerance process it is no longer a effective format to
increase performance power out-puts for Track Cyclists Targeting
International competitive performance times. Each nervous system needs to be
separated to produce the gains required to activate the maximum structural
attributes of the athletes to get to competitive International times. It is
by understanding the genetic behavioral attributes of the athlete
that the correct training protocols can be implemented to produce
the force required to be in
compliance to Newton's laws of motion.
In a Track Cycling strength program targeting power and speed in an athlete, you typically
see more sympathetic nervous system overtraining with symptoms such as:
-High cortisol & insulin
-Fluid retention and swelling, weight gain.
This gives a Highly variable (HRV) heart rate variability number bounces
around from day to day)
In a conventional Road breathing rate LT endurance athletes program you typically
see more parasympathetic nervous system overtraining and symptoms such as:
-Adrenal exhaustion low cortisol, low insulin,
This gives a
-Low (HRV) the heart rate variability number stays consistently low)
So opposite side effects.
Cycling is a Specialized discipline requiring different
physiologic attributes to a Road Cyclist and a different methodology and
mind set to produce them".
Because Strength training results are seen in the spinal cord well
before any physiological muscular adaptation is established through
the muscle hypertrophy or power increases, Mapping the motor
learning on the musculoskeletal level as it begins to mimic the
genetic model your trying to clone is the base method of tracking
the athlete work loads accurately. The current method of finding
muscle synergies is to measure EMG (electromyography) signals from
all muscles involved in a dynamic action movement so that specific
patterns of muscle activation can be identified in the contraction
types of the action controlling the out-put force as the athlete
produces predictable achievable load increases to produce a constant
increasing performance model.
So tracking the controlling strength elements within the skeletal muscle
torque development process is done through the "Sympathetic Nervous Systems"
association to the monitoring of the HRV of the athlete used in the event
specific work loads. Measuring this was a cumbersome process
and needed trained staff and expensive medical lab equipment.
This can now be done easily and quickly on a lap top and associated directly
in to your power file analysis. It is understanding how to manipulate the
nervous systems correctly that activates the required force production
increases to produce an out-put in compliance to Newton's laws of motion.
It is by using the Ventilatory Thresholds (VT1 and VT2) ratio's as they can be associated to
the skeletal muscle
torque development as neuromuscular activators for anaerobic workloads and then further
associated to the important nervous system development for the skeletal muscle
Motor Unit Synchronization
increases needed to produce the required work loads for International
So what is a ventilatory threshold? The VT is the ‘point of
transition between predominantly aerobic energy production to anaerobic
energy production.’ And if you want to get specific then the first
ventilatory threshold is ‘the "intensity"
at which ventilation starts to increase in a "non-linear" fashion’
and the second ventilatory threshold is ‘the point at which high-intensity
exercise can no longer be sustained due to an accumulation of lactate’.
Because we must attack the genetics of the athletes first in the Track
Cyclist development process it is the manipulation of this "intensity"
that targets the "correct sympathetic nervous system development" needed
thought the neurological pathways and cloning the activation and response
mechanisms of the higher genetically gifted athletes performance out-put
combinations that results are produced,
"NOT TRYING HARDER".
Because of this process lactate testing is no longer done on a Track
Cyclist here in the development phase as the association between the VT1 and VT2 heart function
readings can be determined to the
tension ratio to the neuromuscular contraction rate range which
intern controls the lactate at the value targeted which is the optimum saturation
so it can then be combined in the fuel source and burnt of as part of the
energy production prolonging the run time at the much higher out-puts
required for track cycling.
"Not Trying Harder".
Attempting to use Breathing
Rate protocols on to a indoor venue on a athlete less that a Genetic
A expression has disastrous consequences for a Race Development Model.
Thought the neurological pathways and understanding genetics by cloning the
activation and response mechanisms of the higher genetically gifted
athletes the High Performance Sports Departments now with new
technology like portable HRV monitoring systems and the association of all these
elements separately when brought back into the power file allows the power
file to be read with such a deep level of understanding without the need for
all the individual elements being constantly monitored any longer in these
large labs as the relationship is finally associated directly into the event specific
required work loads at the actual venues used for the events.
Real time monitoring of the

can predict maximum, VT1, VT2 and the associated Torque loads while
performing a maximal incremental test with
the "Sympathetic Nervous System" being activated correctly
at old VT1 out-puts giving the athlete the neuromuscular
commutability to involve all muscles in the dynamic action movement
so that specific patterns of pre trained muscle activation sequences can be
utilized in the contraction types of the muscle activation model.
Because skeletal muscle

event specific work loads can be produced while maintaining a
Functional controllable FTP while increasing
the out-put the further the athlete goes into the effort until the
targeted run time expires,
the connection between the torque as a activator for these anaerobic
workloads while still maintaining a functional Lactate Threshold between
efforts is the controlling elements within the skeletal neuromuscular
development process capitalized on to produce effective Indoor Track Cyclists.

Understanding the "WHY" in a Complex

just following a script produces a dangerous progression of negative effects
causing a premature and critical failure of the athlete body to perform
their requested tasks in as little as 5 - 7 days.
