What is the consensus when it comes to leg strength training? I have always trained legs, squats, lunges, plyometrics, etc; however, recently I have refrained from this training and changed the way I ride. I now use every other day (or so) has a high cadence training day, working in my designated heart rate zone for a sustained period of time. On the alternate days (at least twice weekly) I attempt to make it a lower cadence day, but with high tension (hills, big gears). I then try to make either Sat / Sun a long ride which incorporates both principles.
I still use weights for upper body, but as stated above, I'm not currently incorporating strength training in with my legs.
What do you do?
