Each program includes: soft-tissue training, mobility training, strength and power training. The proportions of each depend on your needs and goals.
There is no minimum term, you can stop at any point. All you need to do is cancel your subscription.
However, strength training to improve your on-bike performance, as well as your health and wellbeing isn’t a quick-fix. It has been shown that long-term consistency is far more beneficial than short-term intensity and will take some time to get the maximum benefit.
We’ve therefore hand-crafted our training plans with this in mind and believe that once you’ve experienced feeling better and riding faster you won’t want to stop!
They can! If you’d prefer to do this, it’s entirely up to you…
Our programs are written by elite-level strength & conditioning specialists who have coached some of the best cyclists in the world to multiple Olympic, World, Continental and National titles across a variety of cycling disciplines.
We offer the best cycling-specific strength coaching there is, so if you want the best, then this is the plan for you!
Many of the elite-level riders we’ve trained were novices in the gym (read some of our testimonials) and used strength training to help them reduce the number of injuries they picked up, recover quicker and boost their power.
What’s important is the approach we take and the methods we use. Your program will follow the principles used by Olympic and World champions, but still be specific to your needs as an individual.
No! The beauty of our programs is that you get what you need, when you need it.
While we advocate year-round strength training there will obviously be times of the year when off-bike training is less important, so at this time we will reduce the frequency. In contrast, during the off-season, it may be important to train more often, so your training program will reflect that. It’s all about communication!
These fluctuations in training frequency are difficult to manage with face-to-face coaching but easy to prescribe through the TrainHeroic app and all your sessions will be available when you need them.
The average cycling-related injury results in 28 days off the bike. Because good quality strength training reduces the number and severity of injuries, most athletes on our program actually spend more time in the saddle than before they began.
Lift more. Ride more.
In short, no you won’t – this is a complete misconception of what strength training is, and what’s it’s used for.
Our programs and the methods we use have been proven to improve functional power across a range of events from 30-minute time-trials to stage races! In addition, improved body composition will dramatically improve your power-to-weight ratio and reduce your aerodynamic drag.
We specialise in off-bike training to support your sporting goals. It’s assumed that you will take care of your own on-bike training as it’s not something we offer.
However, if it’s something you require we’d be happy to recommend one of our approved specialist coaching services.
All riders are individuals, so this is obviously different for everyone and will depend on a multitude of factors such as your current level of training, injury status, riding schedule, etc.
You will see gym-based improvements almost immediately and most riders begin to feel more “robust” and able to “recover quicker” in 4-6 weeks. Noticeable performance improvements are often seen in 12-16 weeks.
** It’s probably worth noting that we take care to balance your short-term performance and your long-term wellbeing! Rushing this process may lead to quicker results but at the risk of future problems. Be wary of anyone who says they can make significant improvements in a shorter time! **
