I was hoping to continue some of the discussions from the random-questions thread on endurance races, and specifically about a weight training program.
Coming from a RR/TT background, I don't do weights, at all. I've always felt if Im going to thrash my legs it should be on the bike training my other systems. Im also a bigger guy so can naturally out sprint most people, assuming its flat
But at the track, especially with things like the omnium, Im wondering where you cut the balance? Outside of a strict IP/TP racer, you are sort of asked to be both. A morning doing a kilo and an afternoon doing a points race is a wide range of systems used.
Also where in your schedule do you focus on weights the most? I road race in the spring, track race in the fall/winter, so thinking summer which is usually the opposite of what most people would say, but that is the closest thing to an 'off season' that I plan to do (long easy rides, little racing).
