    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    I'm saying your making a terrible argument for strength training and endurance performance.

    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    Ha ha, you still bleating on. Meanwhile, I have coached 90 riders to National titles and riders to 19 UCI World Championship medals inc 6 Gold. Have the hard data that shows that it was event specific power that got them there. So much data, I am half way through my PhD. I wont be able to post...

    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    Pogata repeating himself, getting lazy by cut and pasting, and using people he has used before, posting months, or years apart in this case, not keeping up with the literature that questions most of the current research on the benefits, or lack of, from weight training on cycling performance...

    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    Pogata the fan boy mistaking a photo with no context, and the ludicrous photo tag of "work on their speed" with real evidence for strength training improving endurance and now thanks to some bad reporting from cyclingnews their speed. But then considering what strength and conditioning coaches...

    Pogata yet again confusing anecdotal information with real evidence. Media reports are not evidence of anything!

    Conclusive evidence that we should all do special core training because Peter Sagan is the World Champion so what is good for him must be good for us:rolleyes: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/sagan-starts-his-winter-training-with-specialist-core-workouts-in-belgium/

    Pogata yet again confusing what an individual athlete does as confirmation that we should all do it.

    It's killing me but..........

    In the last 6 months I have dropped 20kg. Still jiggle a little so plan to spend the next six months dropping another 10kg. No plans for rides or races just want to enjoy getting out on the bike and doing some more riding with the people I coach. Only issue is the track riders I coach say I no...

    What do you get out of racing?

    Social facilitation to pursue personal achievement.

    Pogata showing yet again he has no understanding of the high performance process and is prepared to settle for evidence such as "some pros do it so we all should". Amusing!

    Sprinting and/or anaerobic training.

    You could use the many training methods that track cyclists use to perform on the velodrome but has a great crossover to performance in road cycling! http://home.trainingpeaks.com/blog/article/using-track-cycling-training-methods-to-prepare-for-the-road

    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    The problem with being open minded is where do you draw the line. Have a look through all the guru books and there are endless options for training, lifestyle, nutrition, recovery, supplementation. How much time do you spend experimenting before you decide to knuckle down and actually do...

    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    In terms of substituting a short gym session for more time on the bike it doesn't take into account travel to gym or logistics of having a suitable gym or what happens when travelling. Good thing about training on the bike or on a trainer is you incorporate the intensity within a session...

    Just returned from the World Congress of Sport Science conference in Leeds titled "The Science behind the Tour de France". Bent Ronnestad presented his findings and when asked the question about the matching of workloads between experimental and control groups claims they were equally matched as...

    Maximum strength and cycling performance

    Olivia is now in the gym. Part of that is most gyms do not allow people under 16 to train there. But most of her gains as a sprinter will come from sprinting. Specificity. Why gym? Bigger muscle is a stronger muscle as long as it doesn't compromise her ability to maintain an aero position...
