Strength & conditioning for all performance abilities

Health – Performance – Longevity – Comfort – Injury prevention

THE BENEFITS OF STRENGTH & CONDITIONING FOR ALL ABILITIES

  • The maximal sustained power output for a given distance, and the energy cost of maintaining that output is known as cycling economy. Strength training can result in an increase in cycling economy.
  • It can result in a greater and faster recruitment of powerful, more fatigue resistant fast twitch muscle fibres.This can improve your sprinting cycling performance in the key latter stages of a race.
  • Improved use of the natural muscle spring known as the Stretch-Shortening Cycle, which increases force output and muscular efficiency.
  • Strength training can facilitate maintenance and growth in muscle mass. This can improve sporting performance, but also is vital for overall health
  • It can lead to increases in Bone Mineral Density. This can protect people from developing osteoporosis in later life
  • Improves the coordination between muscle groups, which improves the transfer of energy from one muscle to the next. This can lead to greater force output when running or cycling.
  • Allows greater tolerance of high workload which reduces the likelihood of injury
  • It can offset and prevent muscle wasting in the older population, which are at a greater risk of this problem. Allows improved movement in day to day activities
  • Improves flexibility as muscles can move through greater ranges of motion. This reduces the likelihood of injury.
