Week 3 has now passed and it was a HOT ONE! The whole week was over 40 degrees C and I doubt a lot of training went on. Sitting infront of the air conditioning with a nice cool one was the temptation of the week. Still, most of the competitors managed to lose a bit of weight by sticking to their guns and sweating out a kg or so.
The OPEN Strategy competitors are still leading with a total loss of 17.2KGs! BUT, the RIDEWISER Strategy team is taking it slow and steady and has a total loss of 6.3 Kg’s. Note – there are 7 people on the Open Strategy team and only 5 on Team Ridewiser. This is the reason for the big difference in total weightloss. The average for the Open Team is 2.45kg and Team Ridewiser is 1.26kg.
Weightloss TIP for Cyclists
First spend some quality time (3-4 weeks) getting your ‘healthy food habits’ routine happening. Then drop volume generally across all meals in week 5.
It is a well renowned experience that the body will respond remarkably well to a healthy preparation period before mass reduction ! Couple this with a good dose of regular routine exercise and ‘BOB-THE-BROOMSTICK REALLY WILL BE YOUR UNCLE’.
Slow & Steady Wins the Race.
