was wondering whether anyone here maintains a specific diet or training program and whether it positively affects their biking performance. I bought myself a new Merida Sub40D 2 weeks ago and I haven't used it yet because A) Its raining. The bike is in my house now and once taken out, it cant be taken inside again. Im looking for a good lock for the bike and till then it stays at home.
B) Im scared that with a bodyweight of 130 Kgs, what if I break something.
in any case... I have started with a very strict training and nutrition regime. Since my roots were bodybuilding and track and field, i'm trying to get back in shape.
I observed a positive gain in endurance while I do circuit training with the change in nutrition. I need to have 7 meals a day which comprises also of low carb Meal Replacements and Whey Protein. Since adding these two elements (upping my protein intake) I find workout recovery to be faster and my stamina increasing.
I wanted to clarify one thing from the experts and experienced here. Will I destroy my Bike if I ride it with my bodyweight (130 Kg). In the Bike Manual, they say that the Max weight with rider and luggage should be 120Kg. will 10 Kgs more break it?
