my currently pinched nerve in my back reminds me how important strength training is in cycling especially when you are over 50 .
Now the autumn and winter is approaching in the northern hemisphere, which brings me to the request and request to you to conceptualize in your so good app times a targeted strength training program over… 6 (3+3) or 12 weeks (6+6), that is concretely, more strength training and less ergometer.
At the beginning of the strength winter training build-up, extensive muscle building training (hypertrophy) is performed for the muscles relevant to propulsion. As the competition phase approaches, the methods of strength training shift more and more towards intramuscular coordination training (IK training). Through the method of IK training, the level of maximum strength becomes more pronounced. The adaptations are in the transition mainly in the neural area.
Now that would be something…
Maybe also a few new exercises with weights and dumbbells.
