Is Strength Conditioning the missing piece in your training programme?
Strength conditioning is about more than just lifting weights, it develops the entire athlete to improve physical performance and minimse the risk of injury.
Strength Conditioning improves:
Power, strength and muscular endurance
Balance, and proprioception
Agility and flexibility
Aerobic and anaerobic conditioning
Strength Conditioning for Cycling
A cyclist needs to be able to produce a large force on the pedals while maintaining a good form and range of motion. A rider with great cardiovascular conditioning and a high Vo2max, can never realize his or her full potential if their muscles are a bit weak, imbalanced or inflexible. When you build your strength and flexibility you can reduce your risk of injury and improve your racing speeds.
Strength Conditioning for Running
Runners need strong flexible muscles to maintain good running technique to the end of a long run, especially on hilly or technical terrain. Weak, imbalanced muscles, or poor balance and proprioception can quickly lead to injury. Good functional strength conditioning develops all the muscles needed to propel a runner forward through the 4 stages of the running gait, thus helping to fend off fatigue during long workouts and races.
