I purchased the 16 weeks of resistance training with sweet spot that I’m scheduled to start in November. I was really excited to get into the gym and build muscle. However, here in MN we have seen a considerable spike in Covid cases and my family is not comfortable with me getting a gym membership. I’m not going to sacrifice health and safety of other for on the bike performance. I have really been enjoying getting ready for the foundation work with core and yoga twice a week prior to the foundation plan that I’m starting in two weeks. I’m learning proper form and poses before I get into the plan.
I know the importance of weight training to increase performance… I have dumbbells, medicine balls, resistance bands, balance board and a stability ball. I think adding a viper tube is going to happen, but as for my 16 week resistance plan with weight training, I think I need to change my plan for later November into spring. For what its worth, I know I am leaving watts on the table by not having hardcore strength training built into my plan. However, this will be my first year where I focus more on building core strength in the fall and winter more than I ever have done into my 2021 program. Please advise on recommended change for a plan from November into spring that incorporates core strength work and bike. Even building core strength is better than not building any strength that will translate to even a slight increase in performance.
