Daily training and overtraining
I heard and read in many sources that it is not recommended in resistance training to train daily,
but rather it is better for every muscle group to be trained every other day, or less - so that the
muscle will have sufficient time for recovery.
Yet in cycling, I never heard anyone advices against daily training - shouldn't the same principles of
work and recovery apply equally for cycling ?
I guess recreational cyclists don't usually train intensively every day, but when considering
Pros on Stage Races - these guys are racing every day for weeks.
While recreational cyclist are obviously not comparable in many aspects to the pros,
they still share the same basic physiology, and the same principles should have applied to them
as well, shouldn't they ? (even when considering all the special substances used...)
