  • i'm currently reading base building for cyclists by thomas chapple. it has good ideas on using the winter as a reboot time.. the strength section focuses a lot on not pushing your muscles to fatigue, ( which it says increases size ) but focusing on a range of leg exercises to increase strength. Also he suggests doing leg presses over squats as there is less chance that you will injure yourself through bad form..

    that all sounds mostly wrong

    the key is to not use bad form, and to not pig out for days after your heavy sessions(like me), limit the calories to prevent mass gain

    if youre not fatigued you might as well be doing a weekly sowing class, at least with that you'll learn good technique for repair tubs
