Optimise your recovery to improve your cycling performance!

Has your cycling plateaued, do you feel constantly tired or is maximising your recovery your goal?

The right recovery is essential for maximising your body's ability to repair and adapt so your body can benefit from the training you are doing. Join our Head Performance Coach Togo, Lesley from Recovery Sport, Lisa from Osteopath West Clinic and Fleur from CurraNZ for the ultimate guide to recovering smarter to optimise your cycling performance. We will be sharing advice on training, nutrition and products to improve your recovery.

Togo says: "The true magic does not happen in training, it happens after training where the body repairs, adapts and grows stronger. This is why its so important for cyclists to optimise their recovery."

Does This Sound Familiar?

- "I am noticing a decline or plateau in my cycling, even though I am training regularly."

- "I lack motivation and have lost interest and enjoyment in training and being on the bike."

"I always feel tired and fatigued and this not does improve with rest or recovery periods."
- "My legs always feel tired after a session, even when I exercise at lower intensities."

- "I often find myself getting irritable very easily.

- "I am struggling with frequent and lingering illnesses and often get niggles or injuries."

- "I have an elevated resting heart rate in the morning."

These are all signs you are not taking enough time to recover properly. 

This talk will focus on different ways you can enhance your recovery to help optimise your cycling performance.

"Our cycling club Dittons Velo had the benefit of Togo's vast knowledge when he delivered a course of 3 performance talks. They were well presented with slides and some practical examples. Our members learnt so many great tips and are already putting them into practice."
