Weight Training for Cyclists is the best-selling guide for cyclists who want to get stronger to ride stronger.
In addition to the powerful quads and chiseled calves they’re known for, cyclists need strong core muscles and solid upper-body strength to use their power efficiently.
This revised second edition of Weight Training for Cyclists presents new information on core strength, nutrition, stretching and warm-up. Now comprehensively illustrated with easy-to-follow drawings, the book explains in clear terms how strength training in the weight room translates to endurance and power on the bike.
With the latest research on strength building buttressed by the most recent and effective equipment innovations, Weight Training for Cyclists presents a series of training plans that require only a fraction of the time that cyclists spend in the saddle. For newcomers and veterans alike, Weight Training for Cyclists will become their fundamental guide to better performance.
