Synopsis

This is a fitness and training book for cyclists. Once the season starts, most cyclists save every spare moment for the road, racking up the mileage on long rides requiring consistently hard efforts. Thomas Chapple warns road cyclists that long and hard training can hurt a season more than it helps. While there is an appropriate time for tough training, smart preparation will teach the body how to better use its energy stores for improved performance. A cyclist's aerobic base is reliant on setting aside time before the season starts for training at a reduced volume and lower intensity. Slowing down will actually begin to build a stronger base, increasing the body's capacity for fitness and speed by establishing a stronger foundation for the season ahead. Fully illustrated with tables, figures and photographs, this is the missing link for cyclists who are looking to build a stronger aerobic engine, increase overall fitness, avoid common setbacks and ultimately achieve more speed.
