From the Back Cover
Cyclists like to pile on the miles, but mileage alone can leave important muscle groups underdeveloped.
True improvement requires a balanced program of off-season weight training coupled with strength maintenance throughout the year to build total body strength. Weight Training for Cyclists will show you how to create the power you're looking for and make you a better overall rider.
You don't have to wait another season for the results you want.
By adopting this total body training program, you will improve your cycling strength, skills, and endurance--without adding bulk. In addition to building balanced strength, the resistance training program from authors Ken Doyle and Eric Schmitz will also:
- Improve sprinting power and climbing pace
- Increase bone density
- Boost lactate threshold and aerobic power
- Improve exercise efficiency
With detailed illustrations and instructions on how to perform the recommended exercises safely, Weight Training for Cyclists will help you develop the balanced program you need for success.
Ken Doyle has a degree in exercise physiology and is certified by the National Athletic Trainers' Association and the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He has coached teams and individual cyclists for 25 years, is a licensed coach with the U.S. Cycling Federation, and is the head coach of the Santa Barbara Special Olympics Cycling Team.
Eric Schmitz also has a degree in exercise physiology and is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
