Joe Friel Updates the Bestselling Training Book for Serious Cyclists
The Cyclist's Training Bible Includes the Latest Advances in Training
Internationally recognized cycling coach Joe Friel has updated The Cyclist's Training Bible, the bestselling and most comprehensive training book for serious cyclists. New in this fourth edition are updates on all the latest advances in cycling training including training with a power meter, smarter approaches to recovery and fatigue management, a new approach to strength training, and updates to body composition and nutrition. All the charts, tables, and illustrations are now in a two-color format, making The Cyclist's Training Bible even easier to use.
The Cyclist's Training Bible has equipped thousands of cyclists for success in the sport. Using Friel's Training Bible methodology, cyclists create a comprehensive, self-coached training plan that is both scientifically proven and shaped around their personal goals.
The Cyclist's Training Bible speaks to cyclists of all ability levels, whatever their experience. Friel empowers athletes with every detail they need to consider when planning a season, lining up a week of workouts, or preparing to race. The 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 maximize 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, and 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.
