Be honest: trainers are no fun. But on days when you’re 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 Friel’s 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 you’re 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. It’s 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.
