Cycling Anatomy-2nd Edition
Cycling Anatomy goes beyond the 89 exercises by placing you on the bike and into the throes of competition. Illustrations of the active muscles involved in cornering, climbing, descending, and sprinting show you how the exercises are fundamentally linked to maximum performance. You’ll learn how to modify exercises to target specific areas and minimize common cycling injuries. You’ll also learn ways to pull it all together to develop training based on your individual needs and goals.
Whether you’re training for an upcoming century ride or just want to top that killer hill with strength to spare, Cycling Anatomy will show you what it takes to reach top performance, avoid injury, and get the most out of every ride.
