Strength Training For Cyclists

The research done to date on the effects of weight training on cyclists has brought mixed results. The study done by Ben Hurley at the University of Maryland had 10 healthy men take up strength training (bench presses, hip flexions, knee extensions, knee flexions, press-ups, leg presses, lat pulldowns, arm curls, parallel squats, and bent-knee sit-ups) for 12 weeks, while eight other healthy men served as controls.After 12 weeks, the strength-trained men improved their endurance while cycling at an intensity of 75 per cent V02max by 33 per cent and also lifted lactate threshold (the single best predictor of endurance performance) by 12 per cent.However, these men were untrained prior to the study and did not carry out regular cycling workouts during the research, so the applicability of these findings to serious athletes is questionableThe study carried out by R. C. Hickson and his colleagues at the University of Illinois at Chicago was considerably more practical. In that investigation, eight experienced cyc...

As most people know the majority of a person's body is water. In fact, your body is about 60% water. We need to drink lots of water every day to keep our bodies healthy. When people work out in the gym, we sweat a lot of the water we have been drinking up to that point and that is why we also need to drink as we work out. Also, our muscles need water to properly perform the functions necessary to increase mass and strength when working out and recovering. This is where the sports supplement creatine comes in.

Besides our natural ability to produce creatine, we can get it from the foods that we eat, mainly meat products. Another way we can gain more creatine into our bodies is by ingesting it like any of the other muscle building supplements. Athletes and bodybuilders ingest it in a powdered, micronized form either in that form or mixed in with a post workout drink. Why wo...


Useful Ideas For Removing The Obstacles To Better Fitness

Fitness is a worthy objective that many people have, but often obstacles get in the way. You probably know the value of exercise and a healthy diet, but find it difficult to be consistent in these areas. If you're trying to overcome any obstacles in regard to fitness, we'll be looking at some methods and ideas to help you accomplish this.One problem people who haven't exercised for a while face is that they don't feel sufficiently fit to begin a fitness program! If you've been inactive for a long time, you may be reluctant to begin an exercise program. Or maybe you've tried to run, lift weights, ride a bicycle or joined a class at a gym and found it too strenuous. The key is to start at whatever level you're at right now. You should seek medical advice about a good exercise program if you suffer from any chronic health issues. If you feel out of shape, you might want to start walking regularly, as this is something you can begin as slowly as you want, and increase as you get fitter.It's common for people to f...
