?'s about "Maximum Performance..." by Michael Ross
I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the book "Maximum Performance For Cyclists" by Dr. Michael Ross. I have read it and I must admit the training approach and program he discusses is very interesting to me. He advocates "HIT" or High Intensity Training, which basically means not spending hours and hours on the bike doing "junk miles" but focusing on much shorter high intensity sessions with lots of recovery between each 3-4 day grouping of rides.
I'm training for individual time trials and crits and am just starting my first full season of racing after a few years of riding. I don't have a ton of time to train and I like the idea of focused training with specific goals. I just wonder how this method plays in the "real world" where people do centuries as well as shorter races.
Any feedback or experience with this?
