Mixing in weight training? Is it too much?
I was planning on taking it easy this winter to focus more intensely on dropping weight and lowering bf % (i.e. with weight training), but it seems that everyone else is using this time to really hammer and build FTP. Not wanting to get left behind, I will be upping my riding schedule to accomodate.
The question is: how well am I going to be served by continuing my weight training program? I currently ride ~12 hours/week and lift 4 times/week. I hesitate to back off the weights because I've seen some nice results already after just a couple months.
For those that lift and ride, how do you balance the two?
