The hotly debated topic of whether you “just need to ride more” or “lift more weights” needs to end. Yes, you need to ride your bike, but you also need to strengthen the muscles that power your bike. It not only makes you a stronger cyclist, but it also increases your resiliency on and off the bike. (Not to mention it also adds to your overall health.) So, strength training for cyclists may be the differentiating factor in your training.
But, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or take hours every week. It can be succinct for your specific needs as a cyclist, with just a bit of effort on your part. No need for endless hours spent in the gym or in yoga. Instead, focus your training on these key elements that I discuss in this episode.
