Sure Beats The Trainer… __TOP__

When I rode my first horse in 1996, that was it; from that moment forward I was hooked. Little did my parents know that by letting me ride that first horse, they created a horse-obsessed young boy who would go on to become fiercely devoted to dressage. I started training in dressage at the age of 15 at a local barn outside of Appleton, WI. Shortly after, I became exposed to true classical dressage in accordance with the German training scale through monthly lessons with USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medalist Shelly Reichart. My parents did not share my love of horses or dressage, nor did they support me in this very expensive hobby, and instead pressured me to pursue other activities, such as playing piano. Thus, I made do by riding whatever horses were available to me.
A: Honestly, the biggest thing is that you eat right and take in the right amount of fluids. You're burning so many calories and losing so many more fluids (in the heat) that you need to make sure you're replenishing those. I can't go out here like I did in New York and just go through practice drinking a little water. You need to stay hydrated to prevent yourself from getting sick or increasing your chance of injury.
A: When you grow up in an area like this, or Florida, you understand how to deal with the heat a lot more, but when you come from a different area it's a different kind of heat, more humid, and when it's in 100 degrees it's really 110 or more with the index. Hydrating well is the most important thing, as well as stretching. You want to make sure your body can feel at its best every day instead of feeling like you're on the last leg in week. So be sure to not neglect or skip out on getting proper fluids and taking the full amount of time to stretch.
A: I avoid sweets and fast food, also trying to avoid fried food. I mean I have my cheat days on Friday or Saturday, allowing myself to eat whatever I want to. Otherwise, I eat proper and clean throughout the day. For me, during this time I'm trying to lose the weight that I need to, and then maintain that level once I get there. Just make sure you're doing the right things. If you're eating poorly and are dehydrated your body will be reacting slower and feeling worse while training.
A: The biggest thing for high school and college guys getting ready for camp in the next couple months is understanding yourself. Know your limits. When you're not feeling right be sure to talk to the coaches. Don't be the tough guy that isn't contributing to the team because you're not 100 percent. Be responsible enough to tell the coaches when you're not at the top of your game, otherwise you could end up hurting the team as much as you hurt yourself. This is especially important in heat like I have in Arizona.
With that in mind, we asked a number of current and former professional athletes and trainers about the indoor bike trainers they use and why. While the Wahoo KICKR was the clear favorite, opinions were widely split from there. Before you decide to invest in an indoor bike trainer, consider our preferred picks below, and read on to determine what you should consider when investing in a bike trainer of your very own.
Full time cyclist and photographer Charles Ouimet suggests always going for a direct drive trainer, if budget allows. These kinds of trainers require the rider to remove the rear wheel and connect to said trainer via a standard bike cassette (but make sure it matches up to the gear allotment on your bike). More serious cyclists tend to like them because they put less wear and tear on the rear tire and typically have more features.
Be realistic and don't push yourself too hard, too fast. Fitness is a lifetime commitment, not a sprint to a finish line. Talk to your doctor if you have any medical conditions or you're not sure how intense you should exercise.
Perceived exertion may not always be similar to your heart rate level, and it depends on the individual. But it can be a general guide to measure your exertion level. If you think you're working hard, your heart rate is probably higher than usual.
Here's an example: You stop exercising and take your pulse for 15 seconds, getting 37 beats. Multiply 37 by 4, to get 148. If you're 45 years old, this puts you in the target heart rate zone for vigorous exercise, since the target zone for that age is between 146.5 and 160.75 beats per minute using the HRR method. If you're under or over your target heart rate zone, adjust your exercise intensity.
It's important to note that maximum heart rate is only a guide. You may have a higher or lower maximum heart rate, sometimes by as much as 15 to 20 beats per minute. If you want a more specific range, consider discussing your target heart rate zone with an exercise physiologist or a personal trainer.
Also note that several types of medications, including some medications to lower blood pressure, can lower your maximum heart rate, and then lower your target heart rate zone. Ask your doctor if you need to use a lower target heart rate zone because of any of your medications or medical conditions.
