A Monster on the Bike #1

Hello fellows!

In this post I'm going to talk about the importance of weight training for your cycling performance. This will be the first out of three articles in which I'll show you how to become a killer machine on your roadbike.
This week I'll take you through the benefits of strength training in general and list some of the main facts that should bring you to the gym quickly.
So let's start! Visiting a gym is not only one of the most underestimated aspects of cycling but also one most riders neglect, especially those for whom power is a huge weakpoint. As experience teaches, concerning this type of riders, strength building workouts increase performance on the bike more than any other form of training. A huge amount of them will be surprised how strong they cycle in spring after hitting the weights hard in winter.
Benefits: Sprint faster. You'll destroy your opponents when it comes down to the final sprint, when only raw power output counts.Climb like a mountain…
