I weight train regularly in addition to cycling, during the winter I strength train 6 days a week. In the cycling season I switch to 2 days a week endurance training. It typically takes 3 weeks of adjustment before the day after doing legs in the gym doesn't screwup my cycling for the 3 days after. I do squats, hack squats, and other assorted leg work. The other foot note is that I lose a significant amount of muscle mass and strength during the summer. I have been doing this for 8 years and I am still trying to adjust my training to dampen the body mass swings. However your body will adjust to the type and intensity of training you do. That is providing yu do not over train, listen to it, and allow for proper recovery, rest, and nutrition.
