Summary

With The Cyclist's Training Bible, riders can create a comprehensive training plan that's both scientifically proven and shaped around their personal goals. Suitable for riders of all ability and experience levels, it discusses every detail athletes need to consider when planning a season, lining up a week of workouts, or preparing to race. Riders learn how to use power meters and other new training technologies to maximize form and fitness and reduce fatigue, how to build muscular endurance through strength training, how to improve body composition and recovery with smarter nutrition, and how to make changes to their annual training plan over the course of a season. With more case studies to draw from and multiple contingency plans for those times when training doesn't progress as planned, this exhaustive yet easy-to-use guide is the ultimate resource for the self- coached rider.
