There are different options on the market for optimized AI training plans that are based on applying machine learning to your individual data. In this post, we compare the different options and their features.
We are big fans of TrainerRoad (TR) and their training plans which we have personally used extensively in the past. TR has announced adaptive training which "uses machine learning and science-based coaching principles to intelligently adjust your training plan, so you get the right workout, every time".
At this point TR is recommending one-off workouts 'TrainNow'. This feature looks similar to Garmin's daily recommended workout. TR is looking to incorporate more machine learning into their app in the future. For more info, see DC Rainmaker's post.
AI Endurance uses cutting edge machine learning technology (we even developed some our own methods) to create personalized AI training plans. The plans are based on your historical data and are predicted to give you the biggest performance gains for the time you have available for training. The AI is guided by best practices established around endurance training. It adapts your training as you progress through a training plan.
You can get cycling plans, running plans and also triathlon plans that take both your running and cycling data into account simultaneously. We predict your performance on your event date for the most common event types from 5k to Ironman.
You can also easily get your AI Endurance workouts into Zwift for both cycling and running. So if you're using Zwift already you can simply execute your personalized workouts there. You can also do your workouts directly from your Garmin device.
We believe that this is just the beginning of using machine learning to help endurance athletes improve. It is a classic problem where no human being can possibly wrap their head around all the possible ways we could structure endurance training and what the possible outcomes would be. AI however - can.
Apple Watch has been a popular choice in running and triathlon. You can now track and execute your AI Endurance custom running, cycling and swimming workouts on your Apple Watch.
When it comes to excelling in endurance sports such as triathlon, running or cycling proper nutrition plays a crucial role in maximizing your performance and achieving your goals. Whether you're swimming, cycling, or running, your body requires optimal fuel to meet the energy demands of these activities. In this blog post, we'll explore the importance of nutrition in triathlon, running, and cycling, followed by an introduction to the new feature of AI Endurance which provides recommendations for daily and activity specific nutrition requirements individualized for each athlete.
DFA (detrended fluctuation analysis) alpha 1 is an HRV (heart rate variability) based aerobic and anaerobic threshold estimation method. It only requires a heart rate monitor that tracks HRV data. It has the potential to track your thresholds automatically without dedicated test workouts.
We explain how AI Endurance uses ChatGPT to help guide your triathlon, running and cycling training.
