  • Are Squats Sure to Improve My Riding?

    I'm doing squats this winter but am unsure if added strength will help my cycling next season. I read the weight training chapter in your Off-Season Training for Roadies eBook, but should I continue working so hard in the weight room? 

  • Building Power on the Trainer and on the Road

    Sunday it was 62F (17C) in Boulder, Colorado, and I went for a great endurance ride up to Jamestown, a cluster of 250 homes at 6,926 feet (2,105 m) elevation. Although the weather was warm there was still ice in James Creek. And, sure enough, Monday's weather was windy, wet and very cold (back down to freezing). Good trainer weather, in other words. This "shoulder season," as winter becomes spring, is perfect for trainer workouts on those days when the weather still won't let you ride outside.

  • Cross-Train for Fun and Fitness this Winter

    I prefer to cross-train through the winter, still riding occasionally but not exclusively. I turn my sights to something else I enjoy. If riding this winter is for any reason more of a chore than a pleasure (nasty conditions, desire for more family time, need for a mental or physical break, HATE the trainer), then try one or more of these activities: mountain biking, walking, dancing, running, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, etc. You might find that the biggest benefits are the added family time and the fresh excitement for riding in the spring.

  • Cross-Train for Fun and Fitness this Winter

    XC ski season started for me several weeks ago. I prefer to cross-train through the winter, still riding occasionally but not exclusively, and I really enjoy XC skiing. No matter which of the numerous non-cycling activities you like to do to round out your off-season workout regimen, cross-training in the winter delivers myriad benefits to your cycling and overall health. Even if you live in a climate that allows you to ride year-round, taking a break from full-time riding and working some other activities into your routine is still a good idea. Here's why:

  • Fit for Life III: Improving Your Athletic Maturity

    Mature is a much better word than old, senior, etc., don’t you think? Although my chronological age is 67, I’m on Medicare and I’m eligible for Social Security, I think of myself as having acquired 43 years of athletic maturity since I started riding in 1975. I’m not old! I'm athletically mature! In my second column in this series I suggested that you take the Athletic Maturity quiz. You can use your results to answer this week’s Question of the Week and compare yourself to other roadies. And read on to see how five RBR contributors scored on the quiz.

  • Getting 'Fat' in the Winter

    By Sheri Rosenbaum  I’m a roadie, but riding the roads of suburban Chicago during the winter can be challenging. In addition to the danger, snow, ice and salt can wreak havoc on a bike. And riding the trainer is always low on my list compared to heading outdoors. So, last year my boyfriend and I decided to test ride fat tire bikes. We rented them from a local bike shop and went across the street to a forest preserve. As we headed out the door, the sales guy yelled “when in doubt, run it over!”

  • How Can I Gauge My Improvement on a Trainer?

    I'll be riding my Kurt Kinetic Road Machine indoor trainer for several months this winter and I wondered how I can tell if I'm improving over the course of the workouts?

  • How Does Strength-to-Power Conversion Work?

    You told this to a reader who wants more power: "Fixing this problem starts with a winter weight program. Then in the spring, you convert the new strength into cycling-specific power with short, hard intervals on hills. Begin these by using a big gear at a low cadence, then progress to smaller gears and a cadence over 100 rpm." Why does this work?

  • How Much Should You Train?

    How much should you train? The answer: Probably not as much as you think. My friend and fellow cycling coach Neal Henderson says that 65% of the athletes he sees train too much, 25% train too little and 10% get it right – the pros who are paid to perform. Henderson is the head of Apex Coaching and was named the 2009 USA Cycling Coach of the Year. He coaches clients ranging from novices to World and Olympic champions. And he says only 10% of his clients train the proper amount!

  • How Should I Return to Training After a Cold

    l'm training for a century this spring so I trained all winter, following the schedule in your Off-Season Training for Roadies. Things were going great until I got a bad cold and was off the bike for two weeks. Now I feel like I've lost all my fitness. Should I start over from the beginning?

  • How to Maintain Fitness, Gain Freshness and Enjoy the Holidays

    Brent Bookwalter, who races for BMC, advises that if you have a choice between an extra 20 minutes of riding or spending that time recovering, choose recovery. Think of the holidays as time for quality recovery, a time to gain freshness. Freshness means that you are fully recovered from all of your fall activities and ready – physically and mentally – for the next round of training. The holidays are a precious time to spend with family and friends. I give all of my clients at least a week off from training around Christmas and New Year’s. Enjoy your time off, too!

  • How to Make the Most of Your Trainer Time

    Here's a cycling truism for the season: Riding on the road is fun. Riding on the trainer is not fun (unless you’re a masochist!). If you're a typical roadie, though, you’re always looking for ways to improve: better equipment, smarter training, losing weight, etc. So, figuring out a way to add your trainer time to this list of ways to improve makes perfect sense. Your trainer is a useful tool you can use to tune up your cycling – without driving yourself batty in the process.

  • How to Stay Fit, Fresh & Enjoy the Holidays

    By Coach John Hughes  Think of the holidays as time for quality recovery, a time to gain freshness. Freshness means that you are fully recovered from all of your fall activities and ready – physically and mentally – for the next round of training. To gain freshness you need to cut back your total training volume significantly, by as much as 50 to 75% for a week or two before the holidays. To maintain fitness you should cut back your endurance riding more than your intensity volume, but you should still cut back your intensity volume by 25 to 50%. Here's what you could you do with your limited time.

  • Intervals? In December? Lessons From Peter Sagan

    Cycling Weekly recently published Peter Sagan’s training program for a week. Sagan is a triple world champion who has won a total of 101 races, including 8 stages in the Tour de France, 15 in the Tour de Suisse and 16 in the Tour of California. He’s training a total of about 19 hours a week, more than any of us ride unless we’re at a training camp or on a tour.  I’m NOT recommending anything approaching his volume for us mere mortal recreational riders. But other aspects of his base training, specifically – his approach to intervals – can be instructive for us.

    We've had terrible weather this spring! I can't get on the road often, so I've been on the trainer. Will it help me get ready for competition in a month?

  • Is It Necessary to Build an Aerobic Base?

    When I started cycling in the late '70s, coaches were of the view that building an aerobic base was very important – and specific. Training outside of the aerobic zone interfered with aerobic development and should be avoided at all costs. It seems to have fallen away in the general fitness arena, with HIIT being the latest craze in gyms, boot camps, etc. Given that we now know that all three energy systems work more or less concurrently, is it necessary to "build an aerobic base" from a fitness development point of view?
