Fall is nearly here and that means it’s time to start planning your off-season training.
It’s the off-season, time away from high-priority events, that is the time to focus on improving your weaknesses. For most endurance athletes, their weakness is their weakness in terms of muscular strength. The fall & winter months are the time to build “off-bike” strength & mobility to not only improve ability on the bike for next years competitive-season, but also to improve whole body health by adding variety in training modalities, improve body composition, improve bone, soft tissue and hormone health, and offset muscle imbalances; all of which help keep injury at bay. Every endurance athletes should include a focused strength training block within their annual training program, and our Base Builder Strength Program is made just for this!
