I am a college kid in my master's. I usually ride every weekend and experience significant arm pump. I am doing the Gary Semics workout for eliminating arm pump but still experience some. I lift weights religiously and ride pro class. If you have not rode in a while and you are fast it does not take but around 30 seconds to experience arm pump. Any suggestions on eliminating this? The Gary workout has helped. I also use mineral Ice and bc powders to thin my blood. Warming up before the race helps some also. It usually takes the whole day to eliminate the pump with the third and fourth motos being my best. Any ideas would be appreciated.
