Dee is back with Cycling Training, Part 2: Gym Periodization.
Off-bike training is important for everyone who wants to maximize cycling performance and minimize the potential for injury (as well as improve how quickly you can bounce back from injuries that do occur), but it is crucial for masters-level cyclists.
Learn why gym work is so valuable and see where to incorporate it in the performance pyramid to create training balance throughout the season.
We'll have Part 3: Bike Training Periodization up next so you can see how Dee balances gym work with bike specific training throughout the seasons.
And as previously mentioned, if building your own training program is more than you want to undertake, or you just want to make sure you have a well-designed, comprehensive plan to best reach your objectives, you can work with Dee himself at traintoride.com.
