Harvey Newton, a veteran roadie and former coach of the U.S. Olympic Weightlifting Team, is unequaled in his understanding of how cyclists benefit from training with weights. The 132-page manual — available for the first time as an eBook — retains its original content dealing with cycling research, preliminary steps prior to starting weight training, a thorough explanation of proper exercise technique, and details on developing an effective, personal training program.
It has now been expanded and updated to include a new section covering crucial details on off-bike power training, such as Olympic-style weightlifting and plyometrics.
The original manual was very specifically written to keep cyclists, especially those new to resistance training, focused on improving their strength. True, Newton says, everyone today is concerned with power, but many do not realize that power and strength are two different, although linked, physical characteristics. Power consists of both strength and speed, and is accurately addressed by the question, “How fast can you be strong?”
Original (2007-2009) STFC System customers can update their training efforts with the revised power section in which Coach Newton offers instruction in both Olympic-style lifts and basic plyometric (jump) training.
Those who ordered the DVD and quick start guide (2010-2013) will benefit from adding the manual not only for this power training information, but also to gain the greater in-depth explanation of exercise technique and the rationale for how effective off-bike conditioning can contribute to improved performance.
