here’s a link to a weekly workout routine.
Garmin Edge and Cycle Ops Power Cal Heart Rate Monitor and Power Pairing / Syncing / Not able to find HR Monitor
What Garmin has found out is that they only have 2 or 3 calls on this. The way that the information is done through the power + HR monitor is sometimes jarbled or something. The tech support lady really didn’t know but this is how they solved the issue before and it WORKED for me!
I “disabled” the Power Meter and Speed and Cadence sensors under “bike profile” settings.
Then, I searched for the Heart Rate monitor and it worked!

Brandon Todd is 5’5” and he can dunk. He has never believed his height to be a limitation but an opportunity to change how people view small athletes. Brandon transformed his body over the course of a few years, gaining over 80 lbs of muscle, increasing his vertical to over 45 inches. Todd hopes to teach others that through hard work and perseverance physical limitations can be overcome.

Finally got the new 2013 Felt FC dialed in. I like the raw carbon and minimal graphics on this version better than my 2011 FC. The ride is very similar, which in a nutshell is awesome! It handles so good, it’s super stable bombing hills and hold the line you want to take in any corner. My friend and team mate just sold his 2010 Ridley Helium “Flandrian” and said there’s no comparison. The Ridley was really ‘twitchey’ where the Felt FC just feels stable. I’m definitely sold on the FC because this is my second go around and they keep getting better.
Do sprint interval training to lose fat fast and improve conditioning. Research shows that sprint interval training is the best conditioning method for fat loss, but you have to use a precise interval program in order to get results—haphazardly making up intervals is not the best way to go.
Looks like I’ll need to lose about 20lbs to be a World Champ…
What’s the Ideal Weight for Cycling?
Let’s start by looking at the size and weight averages of world champion cyclists over the past 12 years to show the ideal weight range needed to compete on a very high level. The easiest way to do this is to average each rider’s weight in pounds per inch of height. The table below shows the average weight per inch of height for men and women road and mountain bike word champions1,2.
Body weight in lbs. per inch of height – World champion cyclists 2001 – 2012
Mean (average), and standard deviation
As you can see, to compete on the world’s highest level you need to be light in weight – specifically, approximately 1.85-1.87 lbs per inch for women, and 2.15-2.19 lbs per inch for men. But body weight is not the only factor in elite performance – being as strong as possible while maintaining a healthy light weight is the key.
Maximizing Power-to-Weight Ratio
Power-to-weight ratio is the formula used to determine your strength compared to your weight, and it’s the great equalizer when comparing riders of different sizes. The higher your power-to-weight ratio the faster you will go. Power-to-weight ratio is calculated by dividing your body weight in kilograms (1 kg = 2.2 lbs) into average watts for a given range. For example, if you can produce 300 watts for your functional threshold power (FTP, about a 60 minute time trial effort), and you weight 74 kg (163 lbs), your power to weight ratio is 4.05 at your FTP range. This means you can generate 4.05 watts for every kilogram of body weight. A power to weight ratio of 4 to 4.5 is equivalent to a competitive Category 2 racer. A power to weight ratio of 5-6 would put you in the range of a Category 1 elite professional (according to Andy Coggan’s power profiling chart).
