Increase your Functional Threshold Power this winter with our 10 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 cyclocrosser to begin in January, February or March to prepare for the Spring/Summer season.
