Anaerobic Power Training


Hey Guys,

If someone wanted to do anaerobic power training to benefit his cycling what type of exercises should I look to be doing



Maximum intensity efforts lasting 9-20 seconds. This can be done on tools like the prowler (either going as heavy as you can for around 20m or doing sprints lasting 9-12 seconds as fast as possible).

You can also do a complex of one heavy lift (squat variation or deadlift variation) for 3 reps with stationary bike with tons of resistance (so that you can"t pedal fast) for 15-20 seconds, with about 15-30 sec of rest after the heavy lift and 3 min after the bike.
