Workouts in a Binder for Indoor Cyclingby Dirk Friel
Synopses & Reviews
Be honest: trainers are no fun. But on days when youre short on time or the weather is just unbearable, a trainer or spin bike means staying on track, maintaining your hard-earned fitness, and putting the hurt on your competitors in the early season.
Workouts in a Binder® for Indoor Cycling makes indoor rides more interesting and much more effective than simply spinning through TV re-runs.
This sweatproof book offers 60 workouts from USA Cycling coach and former pro cyclist Dirk Friel and Wes Hobson, ITU medalist and USOC Triathlete of the year. Each workout is designed to produce a specific training effect from Joe Friels Training Bible approach: Endurance, Force, Speed Skills, Muscular Endurance, Anaerobic Endurance, and Power. You can use a power meter, heart rate monitor, or perceived exertion to make sure youre in the right zone for each workout. Pepper these workouts into your existing training plan or use one of six plans in the book to build your off-season fitness.
Workouts in a Binder for Indoor Cycling is sweatproof and spiral bound to lie flat on your spin bike or near your trainer. Its compact enough to travel with you to a hotel gym.
Just one problem: Now you have no excuse to bag a ride on a rainy day.
Indoor workouts on trainers and spin bikes are great opportunities to isolate weaknesses, work on drills, and more closely measure performance, but the preset courses of a stationary bike can quickly become boring. These spiral-bound, sweat proof workouts enable cyclists and triathletes to choose workouts geared toward their personal objectives, making indoor rides more interesting and productive. Each workout allows the athlete to use heart rate zones, perceived exertion, power levels, or a combination of methods to track performance and improve skills. The workouts are categorized by objective: endurance, force, speed skills, muscular endurance, anaerobic endurance, or power. The book can be used in conjunction with training plans for both triathlon and cycling and is the perfect solution for days when inclement weather threatens to cancel a ride.
