8 Weeks Advanced Strength & Conditioning

Who - This program targets the more ambitious athlete, ideally with more experience using barbells and freeweights. It is based on a sub-maximal test (3RM) to establish your starting strength and the percentages to be used in the plan. The 8 week plan is ideally suited for a short preparation and sharpening up before a trip or race (or block of races), but can be used at any time for strength gains and to improve your riding.

How - Using advanced strength exercises you will develop strength and condition specific for MTB, but it won't be easy! You will require access to a gym and about 2 hours per week to dedicate to this program (over 2 separate days). Each workout is split into two components, a pure strength part using weights, and a second circuit type workout, targeting all muscles involved to build stamina, fatigue resistance and muscular endurance.

Why - After 8 weeks we will retest your 3RM to establish progress, and you can expect to see significant gains, which do translate to more power, control, efficient pedalling and reduced fatigue, and having more fun during your rides!
