All Episodes

In this episode of Dialed Health, I am joined by the 2021 Unbound XL Gravel winner, Taylor Lideen. Although this is a huge accomplish for Taylor, this is actually not what we dive into in this episode. So, what do we chat about? Mental health. Taylor personally struggles with anxiety and depression on and off the bike, and together we chat about the mental obstacles he’s had to overcome, as well as the mindset shifts and tools he uses to successfully keep pushing forward. Later in the episode, we do ease up the conversation with some lighthearted talk about his nutrition stops on his 350 mile races at gas stations and some strategy tips you’ll find helpful for building up your gut microbiome. But, all in all, the main takeaway from this episode is really going to impact your mental health and well-being both on and off the bike. After our awesome conversation with Taylor, we jump into member questions: Is it worth it to use Whoop and other HRV monitors to increase strength and how to juggle family, life, work, self care, with riding? What we discuss: 5:00 - Being “stoic” vs. experiencing the highs and lows on the bike 10:00 - Dealing with anxiety on/off the bike 20:00 - Dealing with depression from a young age 29:00 - Training your gut to fuel your performance 40:00 - Overcoming mental battles 50:00 - Avoiding burnout on the bike 53:00 - Getting metabolically flexible for endurance rides 57:00 - Listener question: What are your thoughts on Whoop straps? 1:08:00 - Listener question: How to juggle family, life, work, self care, with riding? 1:20:00 - Announcements Find more from Taylor: @tlideen Get tips from me daily: @dialedhealth Start your training plan:

Welcome to this week's episode of Weekly Thoughts with Derek (aka..WTWD)! This week, I start off by sharing a quote by James Clear: “Your results are a lagging measure of your habits that proceeded them.” I chat about the meaning behind this quote, as well as the mindset shifts we need to make around our habits in order to reach our goals. I also chat about how I've acknowledged that I'm putting my time and attention into the wrong places recently and how I'm making an active shift to change that. I hope my rant on this topic will motivate you to audit where you're putting your time and attention and question if that's where it is meant to be right now.

The number one mistake people make when working towards their riding goals is failing to recover properly. Believe it or not, proper recover is just as important as crushing your training sessions. That's why in this episode of Dailed Health, I share the practical strategies I personally utilize for optimizing my recovery that you can easily implement into your training program. I want to put a large emphasis on the "practical" because it's easy to find a recovery modality on google, but it's not as easy to actually apply it in your life. The strategies I discuss are all practical, low-cost, and highly effective. At the end of the episode, I also answer Dialed Health member questions the most effective rep range for hypertrophy, as well as how to recover mentally from a hard crash. Plus, we share some exciting news about our latest edition to dialed health that you don't want to miss!  What we discuss: 3:00 - Why you need to prioritize sleep 12:00 - Why you shouldn’t overlook your hydration 16:00 - Prioritizing proper nutrition 22:00 - Utilizing foam rolling 25:00 - Are massages worth it? 30:00 - Utilizing compression and elevation 35:00 - Utilizing hot and cold exposure 47:00 - The most under-utilized recovery modality 50:00 - Listener questions (Optimal reps/sets for hypertrophy and how to recover mentally from a hard crash) 1:05 - Important Dialed Health announcement!

Do you prioritize muscle activation? This is something I chat about a lot with Dialed Health members, but something I don’t think enough of us take advantage of. That’s why I brought Ryan Faer onto the podcast to help us understand why we need more muscle activation if we want to build strength as cyclists. Ryan is currently the Arizona performance coordinator for the Cleveland Indians and has a degree in applied physiology and Kinesiology from the University of Florida. Now, those are big resume builders, but what's even more important is that he's a cyclist and also uses Trainer Road. The combination of the above is what really had me thinking, this the perfect person to chat to about sports science in regards to building strength for cyclists. Together, we dive deep into using muscle activation and isometrics to build strength, the science behind how muscle activation works inside your body, the importance of progress overload, and how to incorporate it all into your training program. What we discuss: 5:15 - What is muscle activation? 12:00 - Misconceptions and common errors of strength training 24:00 - The three different types of muscle activation 30:00 - How to apply overcoming isometrics to your training routine 38:00 - Listener’s questions: Effects of cannabis on riding?

He’s been on the show before to discuss balancing family, bikes, and business, although in this episode, he is here to chat about his experience at XC Marathon Nationals.

Quote: As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give permission for others to do the same. Race Taper: Before 2 Weeks out: Last building efforts on the bike or in the gym. 1 Week out: Normal, but no redline efforts Week of: 1 Strength session early in the week(no later than Wednesday) at 70% perceived effort. Recovery ride or rest day between strength session and event.  Depends on your practice/race schedule.  Before you start racing, do 2-3 10 second sprints along with your normal warm up,  The goal is not high wattage, just high speed cadence w/ some resistance to activate your type 2 fibers. After Recovery Day/Yoga or light ride.  Mobility + Foam Rolling is mandatory. Possibly followed by a full day off, but you should be back in the swing of things by Wednesday/Thursday.

🏋🏼How strength training improves your cycling: 🔋THE OBVIOUS: You get stronger by building bigger muscle fibers AND/OR neural adaptations(how the brain communicates with the muscles). 🔋LESS COMPENSATION: Certain muscles begin to “turn off” after time in the saddle(mostly ones on the backside of your body). Keeping those muscles activated helps your primary muscles not become overused. 🔋INJURY PREVENTION: Balanced strength training gives you a more stable body to tolerate impact and twisting. These “tweaks” happen while you’re on the bike or hitting the ground🙈I probably don’t have to explain why less injury is beneficial to your program... 🔋COMFORT: Better alignment and activated muscles means more comfort while riding. Most of use know how back, neck, or knee pain can eliminate your ability to put down power. 🔋PUT IT ALL TOGETHER: Now you’re muscles are firing properly across your body(power transfer) without the pain, instability, or “turned off” muscles holding your back.
