I love you guys and your training programs. Have made a huge difference for me and are tons of fun. The podcast is excellent too.
Question regarding when best to start resistance training: I have two options for my off season:
A) I can start the 10 wk resistance training program now (this wk, beginning 9/7/20), then after completion transition to phase 1 sweet spot program X 6 wks, then have another 4 wks to knock out some of the phase 2 sweet spot program before I move from “base to race” by starting stage race intervals to prepare for first race on 3/20/20.
B) Other option would be to start the resistance training + sweet spot program on 10/1/20, which would end just in time for me to start the stage race interval program in prep for 3/20/20.
Is there an advantage to delaying the resistance training program to try and maintain some of those strength gains through the race season or do you think better to have the extra time to work on sweet spot?
Many many thanks for your expertise.
