Developing a training plan as a weightlifter looking to get involved in sprinting
Hi all. So currently I'm a weightlifter. Snatch clean and jerk etc.
I want to get on the bike again and hopefully use my strength background to do some track sprinting, team sprint and maybe the kilo. I'd also like to make use of the nice weather and possibly do some moderate road rides with my dad and mates.
Should I get a road bike for such training? And look at a track bike further down the line, or use a track bike for most of my training even on a road?
After that, how can I ease in to some sprint training? I guess shorter, higher intensity rides would be more beneficial, possibly using some hills? I also have access to a turbo trainer and a short ~4 mile commute.
My endurance will be low at the minute, as weightlifting is mainly anaerobic.
How often should I hit the track?
So any help is very much appreciated.
