I wasn’t really sure what I was going to talk about with my guest today, but it ended up being a wonderfully deep dive into speed, power development, and strength training. If you want to get into the weeds on how to get faster and stronger on the bike, you’ll love this episode.

My guest is Thomson Remo, lead educator for Wattbike’s professional division. He’s also an elite-level competitive cyclist, indoor cycling world record holder, and current North American USPA Drug Tested Powerlifting Champion.

Thomson develops the protocols used to measure fitness and power, and in this episode, he talks about what metrics matter, how to effectively combine resistance and cadence, and what training, lifting, and speed workouts specifically translate into riding faster and longer. If you’re ready to build power and speed, get ready to take notes.
