Winter Resistance Training Program Part I The goal of this program is to enhance your cycling by working on those muscle groups that are emphasized by the cycling motion, and some that are neglected when training primarily on the bike including the arms and shoulders. A great deal of focus will also be put on strengthening the core muscles in the abs and lower back. This program is periodized in that we will be working on different types of strength and muscle development at different parts of the training season. In this first part we will be discussing the adaptation phase. Warm-up It is important to warm-up before any resistance-training workout. You can ride your bike or run or what ever to get your blood moving and your muscle temperature up. I would also suggest doing at least one set with a very light weight to be sure that the specific muscles you are about to work are warmed up. I like to warm-up and cool down on my bike so that I can apply the training that I just did to the motion that I hope to be able to apply it. Lifecycle and spin cycles can be used, but try to get the position as close to your bikes position as possible. Stretching
