Increase your Functional Threshold Power this winter with our 32-week training plan. Weight lifting for cycling aka resistance training ‘works’ and we’ve been coaching cyclists thru the following 4 phase, cycling specific resistance training program for 15 years.
During this weight lifting program, cyclists build muscle (heavy lifting), train that new muscle to produce great force and then thru neuromuscular sprint workouts teach that new muscle to fire at speeds specific to cycling (high-velocity lifting). “Speeds specific to cycling” is the secret sauce of this program and this weight lifting is made cycling specific by the velocity of the lifts plus the neuromuscular sprint workouts that are coupled to the Strength and Power Phases.
This plan is perfect for the cyclist to begin in the Fall or early Winter (like October thru December in the Northern Hemisphere) to prepare for the Spring/Summer season. Or for the Cyclocross Athlete to begin February or March.
