Lance Armstrong’s personal cycling coach, Chris Carmichael, has released an innovative approach to training this autumn, just months after seven-time Tour de France winner Armstrong raced to a third place finish in his comeback Tour. The Time-Crunched Cyclist aims to present a new way to achieve competitive fitness and power without the impossible time demands of traditional training methods.
As founder of a successful endurance coaching business, Carmichael noticed that many busy cyclists are unable to make performance gains using conventional training methods as they simply don’t have enough time to train the way cyclists have for 30 years. Drawing on his 20 years of experience working with Armstrong and busy career professionals, The Time-Crunched Cyclist shows cyclists how to build fitness on a realistic schedule by emphasising the power of high-intensity interval workouts. In just six hours a week, cyclists can develop the snap, endurance, and strength they need to push the pace in the local group ride, have fun and perform well in local races or tackle challenging century rides.
The Time-Crunched Cyclist retails in the U.K. for £14.00 and is available from your local book shop, cycle shop, or direct from www.cordee.co.uk (01455 611185).
