I’ve read a lot about how Masters riders should be doing strength training year-round to prevent muscle mass loss.
I know by peak summer when I’m really flying I feel like the proverbial 98lb weakling off the bike. Would like to avoid that this year! (But am starting late on strength training.)
What I’m trying to figure out is how to integrate that into my cycling week. Doing a SweetSpot plan right now and will likely do another.
Do I just do lighter weight, high rep squats/planks/lunges etc until fall? And if so, how so I work those into a 5-8 hr wk Sweet Spot plan? Eg - Do strength training on light Zone 2 days, or on Monday/Friday “off days…”
