Plan Description

18-Week Off-Season Strength Program for Cyclists/Mountain Bike/Triathlon


Written by Cody Waite, of Waite Endurance

Our ALL NEW FOR 2019 18-week progressive strength training program is designed specifically for endurance athletes to be utilized throughout your off-season & pre-season base training build. This cycling specific strength program focuses on two primary lifts that contribute to power production: the Squat & the Deadlift. Over the 18 weeks you gradually build strength in these two specific movements following our detailed progression and loading spreadsheet that is specific to your ability.

Surrounding the 'Main Strength Set' of each session, you incorporate a variety of our hand-chosen Warm-Up Sets, Core Sets, Push-Pull Sets, Stability Sets, Power Sets, and Mobility Sets. Each of these sets are available with explanation & demonstration in our YouTube Video Library. Every exercise set is designed around creating the the strength, stability and movement required for more power on the bike (and run)!

Also included with the plan are suggested Strength Maintenance sessions to follow throughout your Race Prep "in-season" training & racing schedule. Don't lose all your hard earned gains! Maintain your strength through the race season so you can can start back stronger next "off-season"!
