Faster - Podcast by FLO - Episode 71: Getting Faster With Cross Training Featuring Dr. Matt Kritz

Faster - Podcast by FLO - Episode 69: Getting Faster With Zero Friction Cycling
There are several hundred thousand friction instances per minute in a chain when cycling. This creates a lot of friction and can waste up to 20 watts if your chain is not properly lubricated and maintained. Chain lubrication options have exploded over the last few years and many people find themselves confused when trying to understand what’s best for them. Unfortunately, there is also a lot of bad information around lubrication. Today on Faster we talk with Adam Kerin from Zero Friction Cycling who is leading the way in cycling lubrication knowledge and testing. We discuss all of the lubrication types and why immersion waxing is best and not as difficult as you may think. Listen to this episode to learn about chain lubrication and how to save up to 30 watts in your next race.

This is an excellent podcast for those that want to learn way more about bikes and aerodynamics than just the basics
I enjoy the conversations and that the episodes are informative and not just content. I’ve been waiting for Weber to be on. Awesome get.
Not only geared toward a single gender
I appreciate that they comment on training for different biological backgrounds and mention the differences in training for both. The variance in episode themes leaves something for everyone.
