…you be suprized how bad you hurt at mile 80 of a 110 mile race. thank god you did your dips and pullups… sit on that bike relaxed, not burning unwanted calories slouched over and hurting trying to stay calm, when the hammer is really going down the last 30 miles… hell, i’m a nobody… i just do what i like to do…[/quote]
Thats great to hear that you are still cycling at such a high level.
I cycle a bit myself, even though its not “sport specific” for my soccer, but I really do think i benefit from the low impact cardio and helps me control my weight. At the moment I might do a total of 120 miles a week, which as you know is not a lot and I don’t feel it has an impact on my soccer performance… if anything it helps me keep up with the younger players.
How many miles a week do you ride? What is your typical week like? How many gym sessions do you have a week? What is your thoughts regarding squats for cyclists? How do you eat?
