I dropped 25 lbs in 3 months and prolly sacrificed a lot of muscle along the way. I'm going to try lifting this off season to regain power in the sprints and climbs. I can't do heavy squats because of dizzyness. Unfortunately my gym does not have a leg press machine.
1) Any suggestions on other favorite alternatives?
2) can an on-the-bike leg workout substitute for gym work? If so, what types of training (on the bike), builds power in the legs?
i get in about 15-17 hours (250 miles) a week. should i taper with the onset of leg exercises?
thanks in advance
