I'm trying to find a good lifting program on this site that would go well with my sprint training (on the bike). Here are my goals in order of importance:
- My reason for living is to sprint like a mofo
- Greatly improve lower body explosive power
- Increase total body strength, emphasizing lower body, obviously.
- Put on some muscle!
Stats: 6'1" 178lbs. I am coming from an endurance sport background so I am weak/skinny. Although, I have started weights this past winter.
Vertical jump is HORRENDOUS - 17inches
best lifts: squat- 255lbs, dead- 270, bench- 155 (don't laugh!)
so, I'm looking for a lifting program
that will best fit in with my bike training. I'm on the bike about 8hrs/week, which is overall just light aerobic exercise with tons of sprints thrown in. I have no problem working out twice a day. My sprint workouts on the bike do not take much out of me.
Things to keep in mind are; lower body explosive power and total body strength. I would like to put on some muscle, but I know I can't focus on that if I want to achieve my main goals.
I was thinking: "White men can jump" might be a good choice
