    I think there is some truth to that. But the trade off is that you teach your body to become good at storing fat to use later during long endurance rides. So if your only concern is increasing...

    Breakfast of champions, coffee and ibuprofen. And most important, keep moving.

    It's not even close. If for some reason if my life depended on starting and finishing a grand tour, I would not pick the Giro.

    Vegetarian for more than 35 years. I gave up meat and sugar because of life threatening asthma and chronic illness. The change was almost instant. My health is amazingly good for my age (any age...

    For indoor I tend to use the treadmill at a 30% incline, sometimes with a weighted backpack. It's difficult enough to keep the workout short and I can use the built-in heart rate monitor to make sure...

    A race I can actually see in person, and cobbles, doesn't get any better. Somewhat related to cycling, my wife is excited to get the chance to see the "fabulous" Fabian.

    1) Start out with a reasonable weight and there is little chance of injury. The lower body is made for that sort of thing, the upper body is a different matter entirely.

    It's not that bad, just start with the bar and add whatever is comfortable. Another way is holding a plate tight to your chest and do box jumps, it doesn't require much weight and tends to eliminate...

    I'm generally useless on any climb of more than a mile. About 4 years ago I moved to a house at the bottom of a hill, surrounded by other hills between 18-25%. They aren't very long, but for the...

    I think his career was only abbreviated due to injuries. I believe it was his back problems that caused him to one day decide to step off his bike and go home. But in the realm of mere mortals,...

    I have always eaten what ever I wanted and can't remember before riding a bike (around age 4). My lowest adult weight and body fat percentage (4-5%) was while eating 7000-8000 calories a day and...

    Yes, but in practice more like a tool. Unlike weight training machines where most of your body remains static and fixed, the bike allows for quite a wide variation in whole body movement.

    Best advice. Your ideas about what you want will change after you ride for a while. Just get a bike that fits and ride it now. Ride it to the gym every day if you can. Riding outside is a lot more...
