High Performance Camp

September 25, 2016

High Performance Camp

With some brain storming we have come up with a new training/learning/teaching camp. The ALP Cycles High Performance Camp. 

By: Alison Powers, ALP Cycles Coaching

As ALP coaches, we continually look for ways to make our ALP athletes (ALPletes) better, faster, and stronger. We want them to be the best they can possibly be. 

Personally, when I think back to my racing and training career, I wish I had known many of the things I now know as a coach. So, that lead me to think of ways we can teach our athletes this 'high performance'  knowledge so they can raise their game to the next level. With some brain storming we have come up with a new training/learning/teaching camp. The ALP Cycles High Performance Camp. 

What is a high performance camp? 

A long weekend (Thursday-Sunday) in Boulder, Colorado where we dial in bike fit, proper training and recovery methods, strength training form and exercises, determine weakness and start to fix those, and make sure each and every athelte is 100% prepared to kick ass in 2017. Oh, and we ride our bikes a fair amount too.  

Lined up for Camp is: 

-We will have a strength training (form and mobility) session at Revo in Boulder. 

-Each person will have a bike fit complete with EMG- electro myography (this determines what muscles are firing and which are not) at Revo. 

- A sports psychology talk about confidence and performance at the next level of competition

- A sports nutrition, recovery, and supplement talk

- On bike skills and drills 

- Motor Pacing

- Technique training for sprinting, climbing, cornering, and descending

- Race tactics and more! It'll be a packed full 4 days.

Dates: October 20-23rd, 2016

Cost:

$425 ($500 non-ALPlete)- covers bike fit, talks, on bike coaching and training, etc. Does not cover food, lodging, travel, etc.

This is a very small, hands on camp. We are limited to 8 riders. However, the sports nutrition, recovery and supplement talk (October 20th) will be open to all ALPletes. If you are interested, let us know ASAP so we can save your spot. A $200 deposit will be due October 1st with payment in full by October 15th.
