Strength Training with TRX for the Cyclist. Do you want to be a better cyclist and/or triathlete? Want to be faster, stronger and pain-free while cycling?
There are millions of exercises for strengthening to choose from, so how do you know which ones will benefit you the most as a cyclist. Doing the wrong ones will not only waste your time but, might be detrimental to your goals. This eBook looks at strengthening specifically for the cyclist using the TRX home-based suspension training system. We have picked the best TRX exercises that are targeted using this system for the cyclist.
STRENGTH TRAINING with TRX includes
48 pages of targeted strengthening exercises using TRX, and even several sample workouts to help get you started.
Also included are 90 photographs showing exercises with proper form.
This book is divided into Upper-Body workouts, Lower-Body workouts, Core workouts, Stretching & Mobility Cool Down
We have picked the best TRX exercises that are targeted for the cyclist. Most of these exercises are programmed to target multiple muscle groups, so you get increased strengthening and stabilization in half the time! These exercises provide you with more happiness on the bicycle. You will get stronger and, therefore, cycle more efficiently. You will also have more flexibility and therefore be more pain-free.
The caveat is that you will need to do these exercises every other day. (Of course, you could choose to do half of a full “routine” every day instead.) You should reserve 20-30 minutes to run through these exercises. With that said, you don’t need to do every exercise in this book each time you work out. Pick a couple from each section and try and spend 30 minutes a day strengthening. The key is consistency! Make sure to take a rest day as well. As your body adapts to the new strength you are building, it will need one day to recover to maximize the muscle building process.
In the beginning: Don’t over-do it. We don’t want you to be so sore that you give up. Do, however, start out slowly and build up to the full amount. Repetitions, sets and actual times will be listed for each exercise.
Again, the exercises listed are intended for the cyclist/triathlete to keep you healthy as well as make you stronger on the bike!
Before doing any of these exercises, it is highly recommended to get in a good warm-up. A brisk 20-minute walk around the block, a 10-minute jog, 5-10 minutes of jumping rope, even 10-15 minutes of spinning on a trainer — it is essential to warm up the muscles that will be worked.
If you have any pain, do NOT perform these exercises. If pain persists, consult a physician.
