Bicycling Maximum Overload for Cyclists is a radical strength-based training program aimed at increasing your cycling speed while cutting training time in half. Rather than improving endurance by riding longer distances, this book teaches you how to do it by reducing your riding time and adding heavy strength training. Traditionally cyclists and endurance athletes have avoided strength training, afraid that the extra muscle weight will slow them down, but co-authors Roy M. Wallack and Jacques DeVore show that exactly the opposite is true.
The maximum overload program uses weightlifting to create sustainable power and improve speed while cutting training time in half and eliminating the dreaded deterioration during the second half of a ride. A 40-minute Maximum Overload workout, done once or twice a week, can replace a long day in the saddle and lead to even better results.
The comprehensive program includes unique takes on diet, interval training, hard and easy training, and sustainable power. Backed by the most trusted authority in the sport, Bicycling Maximum Overload for Cyclists is a book that no cyclist or triathlete should be without.
