Comments: I’ve been hitting the gym at 5:30AM the last few days. Very short on time. Will catch up in here soon.
2 very nice workouts Trent. Lots of strong work on those.
Hope you are able to get that peloton bike.
Best way to do it imo, get it done early!
Thanks Shane. I’m hoping it is in my garage this time tomorrow morning.
Didn’t even have to wake up early today but did it anyway. Will try to make this a habit!

Comments: Didn’t have to wake up early today but decided to do it anyway. For a long time I’ve been getting to work at 9:30-10:00 and I’m just too busy to be getting there that late. Still, I am feeling the 1-2 hours less sleep. Especially driving home in the afternoon. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my evenings scheduled better so I can get to bed early. Supposed to pick up the Peloton tonight. Hoping for the best.
That was a hell of a workout Trent. Those added weight pull ups are always damn impressive. Those low and high rows are strong too. Moving some weights on those for sure!
That is awesome about the Peloton. I think it would be worth signing up for the monthly membership so you can get an idea of what it has available and if you think it’s not worth it, cancel it.
I really like the power zone classes. You have to take what is called an FTP test to get your power zones set. From there you can actually train to try to improve your FTP, or Functional Threshold Power.
They have a lot of great other type of bike classes to though. Some of the guys on there are kinda fruity.
The ones I like are Ben Aldis, Matt Wilpers, Sam Yo, and Alex Toussaint. I am sure there are others that are good too. My wife like a girl named Tunde. They are all kinda cheesy but they are training a wide variety of people so I give them a pass.
Thanks so much for all the information Shane. I didn’t see this post before my ride this morning but will definitely reference it soon.
Yesterday’s Cals: 3,000/-200
45:00, 15.5 Miles, 20.7 Pace, 623 Cals, 157 BPM
Total Output: 497 kj
Avg Output: 184 watts
Avg Cadence: 81 rpm
Avg Resistance: 49%
Comments: First time on the Peloton. That thing is sweet. I just picked one of the scenic routes through Switzerland and kept the resistance around 50%. This thing is like a spaceship compared to the Precor bike. Can’t wait to dig more into it. Was happy with that pace. Might have just been extra motivated since it was my first ride. One thing I noticed was that when you speed up or slow down on the scenic ride, the speed of the video just stays the same. The one I tried in Myrtle Beach the other day would slow down/speed up or stop depending on your pedaling. Also, I think that one would auto adjust the resistance for going up hills, etc. Not sure if mine has those features or not.
More Peloton Comments: The bike looked pretty much brand new and the guy I bought if from gave me his size 45 shoes (which I think is around a size 11 in US). They were a little big but I put on two pairs of socks and didn’t notice any discomfort. I’m still thinking about putting the toe cages on there so I can ride with my Hokas. I hopped on the Peloton at the fitness center at our project in Myrtle Beach the other day. That one is the Bike+. The one I got is Gen. 3 and is not quite as nice, but still way better than the one at the gym. Definitely looking forward to discovering all the features. One big question I have is can I use it for interval work during metcons? So can you hop on, ride for a minute or two, hop off and do other stuff for a few minutes, then come back and not have to log in, navigate back to the manual screen, etc. Also, I played some of the Peloton music and it was kind of rough. Lol Need to figure something out for that too… Overall, very pleased with that purchase.
Nice Trent. The bike doesn’t do any adjustments for you nor does it speed up or slow down during the scenic rides. I too was a little disappointed in this when I found out. At least with the model that I have, maybe the newer ones actually do this, which is dumb the older bikes wouldn’t because they have updates all the time for them.
I haven’t rode a scenic ride in a long time though, maybe one of the updates fixed this, I will check and let you know.
Intervals during workouts, you would probably just need to hit pause on the bike and hope off and then hop back on. Would make it really interesting if you were wearing your bike shoes.
Glad you like it.
Ha ha, thanks Shane. Yeah, it would be interesting doing metcons in bike shoes… I think I could still pedal in regular shoes for a short interval… I read online that the video will speed up on a Distance scenic ride (so if you pedal faster then the video speeds up and you complete the ride faster, etc.). Will have to give that a shot too as the one I did earlier was a Timed scenic ride.

Comments: Started off with squats and deads in the garage. Neither of which felt terrific. Was happy to get 1x285 on squat. Was not happy to fail 1x375 on deads. Honestly, I probably had that rep but was stalling in the middle of the lift and didn’t like my lower back being under pressure for that long so I bailed. Oh well… Went to the gym and did some accessory and a metcon after that. Done.
That was a heck of day Trent. Sucks you missed the deadlift but good idea to bail if it didn’t feel right.
Very solid box squat at 285.
Nice gym session to follow up with as well.
I see you had to find a place to throw burpees in.
Hey Trent, I was in here catching up on where you’re at. Congratulations on getting the Peloton! That sounds sweet.

Comments: Got out in the garage around 5:30AM for this one. I probably had a rep at 225 on bench but 215 felt a little shaky so I skipped it. 125 was hard on OHP so I stopped there. Weak… Went to the gym after that and did some accessory and cardio. Done.
Sometimes those early morning sessions will sneak up on you and make you feel weak like a kitten. Still hammered out some good sets though.
Nice gym work with those db bench and pressing.
Thanks Shane. My pressing has felt a little weak for a while now. It is what it is I guess… I think I did a little too much volume as well. Especially by the time I got to the end of OHP. No wonder it was shaky…
