Hey, I've made a few threads now and had pretty helpful replies - so thanks!
To the point - I am trying to go about raising my power within 5-6 minute periods of effort -It's rare we go above 11 laps as youth riders (458m track). And we hardly ever have sprint events (maybe twice or three times a year and I missed them both this year).
So anyway - trying to increase my performance to pursuit-like efforts. Would weights help in anyway? I'm not talking heavy - probably a mid/low weight with 25-30+ reps and 5ish sets. Would this help with sustaining power? From what I've learned in theory (from school/sixth form) is that this should help, but obviously theory doesn't work in practice.
The events I'm aiming for next season are solo/team pursuit, short mass start events (exc. points/Course De Prime - I'm useless at them) and sprint events (anything below 1km).
I don't plan on training in anyway for sprints though - within my category I can comfortably win anything below 1km (I am trying to be modest, I promise)
Sorry for the longish post and any advice will be greatly appreciated!
