To Gym or Not to Gym?

Find out if staying out of the gym is a better choice for you as a rider.

way to gain strength and power, many athletes don?t have enough total training time to divide between the bike and the gym. If you have ten hours or more to devote to training each week, weight training may be a viable option for you. For those of you with less time, stay on your bike and out of the gym. Spending your hours wisely, on your bike, will deliver you into next spring with a stronger aerobic engine, improved sport-specific strength, and greater power. As an added bonus, now that you don?t need that gym membership, you?ll have more cash for holiday gifts.
