Winter training is crucial to your success in cycling!

Improving your base this winter will increase your ability to produce sufficient power in relation to your body weight. i.e. You need a favorable “Power to Body Weight Ratio” to do the big days in the mountains and high intensity speed days. However the majority of this power must come from your Aerobic Engine System and therefore requires a lot of flat riding. Sounds counter-intuitive but it is a Scientific Fact!

Your base training must include a periodized weight training regimen and physiologically specific & slow (low) heart rate climbing. Preparing now for next season with low intensity heart rate training will not only increase your Aerobic Base but will make you a “Better Fat Burner” and allow for sustainable weight loss. Increasing your base this winter will increase your fitness and let you set new and loftier goals for next season.
