When you get a phone call from an old mate that you've done a training program for and he says that he's seeing differences in how he's riding now, despite having had a dislocated shoulder and cracked elbow over the last 6wks, I had him doing work on a stationary trainer so that he wouldn't lose strength from all the work that he had put in in the previous 4mths. 😁
I've known him for 50yrs and I'm the first person that has set out a schedule and explained why, I want him to do things the way I want. Others have also noted that they have noticed the difference in his riding. It makes it all worth while doing these things, when you get these calls but I also expect them to do as I ask and not waste my time, because even though he is a mate, I told him I will tell him to pliss off, if he doesn't do things the way I lay out.
