Weight lifting in a cycling program
So I'm roughly following the weight lifting program as perscribed by joel Friel's cyclist training bible.
Seems very straight forward, you start light with lots fo reps, lessen the reps and increase the weight as the season goes by but eventually you're lifting heavy weights at low reps once a week. So far (I'm still in the relativily light/hi rep stage) I'm seeing great results. My question now is wouldn't it be better for cyclist to keep the high rep low weights excercise regimen all throughout the year or is there realy merit on going heavier and less reps (and less sessions) as the real riding season comes by?
