Cycling Strength Training Programs

Key Objectives of ECFIT Strength Training Programs

Tissue Care

By subjecting your muscles as well as your connective tissue to constant overload through sport specific training you are putting yourself at risk for muscle imbalances and movement dysfunction.  Making the time to do the correct movement preparations via a well-designed warm up and recovery program you will set yourself up to maintain a healthier overall outlook towards training and racing.

Injury Prevention

The worst thing that can happen to us during our training and racing is to encounter an injury.  Pain is never our friend and is usually an indication that something is wrong.

By maintaining an ongoing commitment to tissue care, movement preparation, specific strength work and recovery strategies ECFIT Strength strategies will help keep your body in balance and keep you training strong without missing days (or weeks) due to muscle and joint imbalances or alignment issues.

Performance Gains

LET’S GET FASTER and RACE STRONGER.

Hormone Health

It is well documented that lifting weights can help support an endurance athlete’s hormonal profile.  ECFIT Strength strategies provide excellent tutorials and guidance to ensure that you learn excellent technique in our most challenging lifts.  Maintaining and optimizing hormonal health is all about challenging your body near to maximal capacity so mastering the techniques and finding the best lifts for you is of the utmost importance.

Weight Management

We can probably all agree that training and racing takes less effort and creates better outcomes when we feel that we are at our most healthy body weight.  Racing weight has been debated over the years that lighter is better but most recently we have found that when you are progressing in sport, maintaining a positive outlook and recovering well that that can form the best definition for optimal weight.

As we age it is well documented that we lose an average of 1-3% of our muscle mass after the age of 30.  It is imperative that we focus on maintaining, or even building muscle, to ensure healthy longevity in your sport.
