Joe Friel, the most trusted name in coaching, has equipped thousands of athletes for success with his scientifically proven training system. This new edition of his best-selling The Cyclist's Training Bible includes all of the latest advances in training and technology. Using this book, cyclists can create a comprehensive, self-coached training plan that is both scientifically proven and shaped around their personal goals. The Cyclist's Training Bible speaks to cyclists of all ability levels, whatever their experience. Joe Friel empowers athletes with every detail they need to consider when planning a season, lining up a week of workouts, or preparing to race. The fourth edition includes extensive revisions on the specifics of how to train and what to eat. Friel explains how cyclists can: best gauge intensity with power meters and other new training technology to maximize form and fitness and reduce fatigue; more knowledgeably and accurately make changes to their annual training plan over the course of a season; dramatically build muscular endurance with strength training; and, improve body composition and recovery with smarter nutrition. With more case studies to draw from and multiple contingency plans for those times when training doesn't progress as planned, The Cyclist's Training Bible continues to be the definitive guide to optimal cycling performance. Colour interior, illustrations, charts and tables throughout.
