Some people might think that 5.5 hours of cycling is insane. But, for Marc Pro Cycling rider Kyle Kirby, it’s just another day of training. Kyle shares his cycling workout and how he uses Marc Pro post-ride to recover and relieve pain. If your legs are exhausted and need some help, try using Kyle’s recovery routine.
Distance: 88.89 miles / 143 kilometers
Time: 5.5 hrs
Elevation gain: 6500 ft
Description: The main objective is to get long consistent miles with some climbing at a decent pace. This was the second day into a three day block where I rode over 5 hours each day. This is known as base building. Getting miles in the legs is imperative to a successful race season. With limited time to train during the week I use these 3-4 day blocks to build my form and set the foundation for the upcoming season. When doing back to back days that are this long and demanding I use the Marc Pro Plus to accelerate recovery before the next training day. Once I finish the training ride I will get a quick Herbalife protein smoothie in and will quickly get a meal prepared to help get the recovery process started.
Marc Pro Details
After a big block of training I like to use my Marc Pro to recover in a few ways. The Marc Pro is great to flush the legs and get ready for another big day of riding, but it’s also great for maintenance work on any small issues sustained while training. I use my Marc Pro Plus to deal with some minor right knee pain, following their placement guide from the website. Recovery time from minor issues I’ve had are greatly reduced by treating it with my Marc Pro unit.
