Full description for The Time-crunched Cyclist
Designed by Lance Armstrong's personal coach, "The Time-Crunched Cyclist: Fit, Fast, and Powerful in 6 Hours a Week" presents a high-intensity, low-volume training programme that delivers competitive fitness and power without the impossible time demands of conventional approaches. In less than six hours a week, cyclists can develop the snap, endurance, and strength they need to push the pace in the local group ride, have fun and perform well in local races, or tackle a challenging 100-mile fundraiser without committing to a traditional, high-volume training programme. Drawing upon the same programme he designed for 7-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, Olympic and U.S. Cycling Team coach Chris Carmichael shows men and women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond how to build fitness on a realistic schedule that fits into the busy lives of today's active middle-agers. Complete with training plans, case studies, nutritional guidelines, and success stories, "The Time-Crunched Cyclist" is the book working professionals and parents have been waiting for. There are no shortcuts; the book's plans require dedication to high-intensity workouts that are based on the same principles Carmichael uses to train top-level pros. The payoff is competitive cycling fitness in less time than previously thought possible. Cycling is more fun when you are fit, and now great fitness is achievable for cyclists who thought their best performances evaporated along with their free time. This book is presented in paperback with b&w photographs, charts, and tables throughout.
