Coach Joe Friel is the most trusted name in endurance sports coaching, and his Cyclist's Training Bible is the most comprehensive and reliable training resource ever written for cyclists.
This edition of the bestselling book 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. Friel empowers athletes with every detail they need to consider when planning a season, lining up a week of workouts, or preparing to race.
This 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 maximise 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; 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.
"This book covers every aspect of cycling training. Testing, setting up an individualised plan. Joe also goes over strength training, and how and when to incorporate it into your plan. He covers nutrition, hydration, pacing, and stretching. Did I leave anything out? Well, I may have, but you can bet he didn't. Being a former Cat 2 racer who some 25 years ago followed the Eddy Merckx ("Ride Lots.") training plan, I was sceptical. However, his explanations leave you with no doubt you are putting your trust in a master." - Google Review
