Synopsis:

Coach Joe Friel is the most trusted name in endurance sports coaching, and his Cyclist's Training Bible is the most comprehensive and reliable training resource ever written for cyclists. This new edition of the bestselling book includes all of the latest advances in training and technology. Using this book, cyclists can create a comprehensive, self-coached training plan that is both scientifically proven and shaped around their personal goals.

Friel empowers athletes with every detail they need to consider when planning a season, lining up a week of workouts, or preparing to race. This fourth edition includes extensive revisions on the specifics of how to train and what to eat. Friel explains how cyclists can:

  • best gauge intensity with power meters and other new training technology to maximize form and fitness and reduce fatigue;
  • more knowledgeably and accurately make changes to their annual training plan over the course of a season;
  • dramatically build muscular endurance with strength training;
  • improve body composition and recovery with smarter nutrition.

With more case studies to draw from and multiple contingency plans for those times when training doesn't progress as planned, The Cyclist's Training Bible continues to be the definitive guide to optimal cycling performance.

From the Back Cover:

Train with cycling's most trusted guide!

Fully illustrated with an easy-to-use two-color format

"I find Friel's book a treasure of information for cyclists of all levels." -- Andy Hampsten, 1988 Giro d'Italia winner, 1992 Tour de France stage winner at Alpe d'Huez

"This book will have you systematically training just as world-class cyclists do. If you scrupulously follow its guidelines, I'm confident your racing performance will dramatically improve." -- Tudor Bompa, PhD, from the foreword

Everything you need to train, race, and succeed in cycling is in this book. Incorporating all of the latest advances in technology and training methods, this new edition of The Cyclist's Training Bible puts the proven benefits of a scientific, self-coached training plan directly into your hands.

Wheather you are a first-year amateur or a veteran of road racing, Joe Friel's step-by-step approach to season planning and race preparation will help you obtain the best results of your career. This fully revised and expanded fourth edition delivers even more proven training strategies, including:

  • Using a power meter effectively
  • Adapting your training plan over the course of a season
  • Maximizing form and fitness, managing fatigue, and speeding recovery from back-to-back days of training and racing
  • Improving your body composition with smart nutrition
  • Supplementing strength training to build efficiency and power for sprints, climbs, time trials, criteriums, and all-around endurance
