Podcast: How Much Sweet Spot Should You Do?

We're back with another discussion of one of FasCat's main training philosophies: Sweet Spot. A big question we receive by athletes is "how much sweet spotting should I actually be doing?" In fact, our training tip on the subject remains one of our most popular. So today we break it all down and explain how much is enough for the pre-season, during the base build, and in season race mode. We'll talk about how sweet spot applies to the different disciplines within cycling, and share our top tips.

We highly recommend going and listening to our episode on the invention of Sweet Spot where Frank discusses the basis of the philosophy. As always, thanks to everyone for rating and reviewing the pod on Apple Podcasts, sharing with a friend or teammate, and continuing the conversation in the forum.
