KW Cyclng Academy Virtual training
KW Cycling Academy is always looking for ways to expand our ability to offer new and energetic programs to all our families. More information: coachRob@kwcyclingacademy.ca or firstname.lastname@example.org
Whether you participate in 1 of our summer youth MTB programs or receive daily training through Training Peaks (offered to all members). COVID-19 has demanded that we look to the Virtual world to make sure all our KWCA youth athletes receive the training they need to "Own the Podium" when racing resumes.
In mid-September, your coaching staff started putting together plans for a connection between Zwift & Zoom.... the early sessions were pretty rough. It took 5 weeks to come up with a format that was challenging for all of youngest kids as well as our Junior athletes, we wanted everyone to get a solid workout.
The format we came up with allows riders to find the workout that works for them, no matter what your age.
Monday & Friday evenings there are 2 Virtual Zoom/Zwift training sessions. Everyone can join, it doesn't matter if you have a smart trainer or want to follow along on Zoom only!
KWCA virtual training has 2 groups.
5:05pm - Youngest athletes - train for 30 - 45 minutes.
6:05pm - Intermediate athletes - train for 1+ hour. Cadets & Juniors - train for up to 2 hours.
The format we use is a "No drop ride concept", all the athletes start together and as long as you keep pedalling you will stay in the workout. You will move around the peloton (from the front to back - back to front). The athletes climb hills, compete for King/Queen of the Mountains (KoM/QoM), sprint for points, and in general have fun training during the winter.
