Strength Training and Cycling - What do YOU Do?

I have been in and out of a number of forums related to endurance sports (Cycling, Running + triathlon) and have noticed that there are any number of opinions on Strength training and Endurance sports.

I have also noticed that there are always numerous of recommendations of what should be done (often without much agreement), so my questions to all of you are:

1: DO YOU INCORPORATE STRENGTH TRAINING INTO YOUR S-B-R PROGRAM


2: WHAT ACTIVITIES / EXERCISES DO YOU USE IN YOUR SESSIONS?


3: WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR RESOURCES / PROGRAMS FROM?


4: WHERE DO YOU DO YOUR STRENGTH TRAINING SESSIONS (AT HOME, GYM ETC?)


I appreciate your thoughts and insights - Thank you.

2: WHAT ACTIVITIES / EXERCISES DO YOU USE IN YOUR SESSIONS? Squats, lunges, lat pull downs, seated rows, weighted sit ups


3: WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR RESOURCES / PROGRAMS FROM? Joel Friel's book - The Triathlete's Training Bible


4: WHERE DO YOU DO YOUR STRENGTH TRAINING SESSIONS (AT HOME, GYM ETC?) Home. I hate gyms with a passion. I'm kind of a germaphobe so I can't stand to lie down onto a stranger's perspiration (I know gyms require people to wipe it up, but in reality, they're really smearing the sweat over the surface of the machine.) Also, I don't usually like to listen to the music played at most gyms because most of it sounds like crap.
