Winter Strength Training Series
BOOST YOUR CYCLING
Faster. Leaner. Stronger.
Finally a strength class for cyclists, triathletes, and adventure athletes.
- Increase power on hills
- Develop crucial core strength for speed and comfort
- Work your stabilizers for injury prevention and control
- Burn off that holiday excess
- Get tailored workouts to do on your own
This program is designed to do one thing above all else: increase maximum sustained power on the bike. First we'll build total body strength to prepare the body for heavier weights to come. Then we'll use a heavy weight/ low-reps protocol to recruit more muscle fibers without putting on extra pounds.
All movements are offered with entry level modifications and advanced options for every level and skill set.
If you intend to do multiple events this spring and summer, this class is for you.

What do you mean by "periodized strength training"?
It's a program that builds power in stages that correspond to the cycling season. This 12-week program utilizes three 4-week periods, each with a specific goal. Each period builds upon the last, creating a foundation for your best season yet.
