Coping with Injury, Numb Hands, Workout Frustration & Starting Strength

by | Oct 15, 2019 | Podcast

Today we discuss your questions about
 – Hand numbness on the bike
 – dealing with an injury that keeps you from your main sport
– Getting frustrated with a workout
 – Moving indoors and/or switching between power meters
 – starting strength – do you need perfect form or instruction?



1) Injured and can’t ride: How do you keep fitness (or at least avoid weight gain)?

2) Frustration indoors and/or with devices and/or with following a plan

 a) Did you change the device, or setting or switch environment? then do the workout and assess later.
 b) How would I do this outside? are you doing something odd/extra that is making this weird/more difficult than it needs to be or add more rules? (what are you saying “SHOULD” about … you “SHOULD” do more watts … why??? )
 b) If I had no data and did this workout would  I feel the same way? or would I just work hard and get it done?
 c) 80% is a passing grade. Nothing is perfect.
 d) 90% of life is showing up. Many people won’t even start … so start!
