MORE PRO & WORLD TOUR CYCLISTS ARE LIFTING HEAVY. YEAR-ROUND.

increased power at threshold

Improved 4o Minute TT times & Increased Power Output at 4g mmol/L (Onset of Blood Lactate Accumulation).

increased peak power

Riders are able to produce significantly more power over 6 second intervals and in sprints.

increased max aerobic power

Improved 5 Minute & Wingate Test Performance. Cessation of strength training is also associated with a reduced VO2max.

increased efficiency

Increased Peak Torque Angle means more power is produced, earlier in the pedal stroke.

THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING.

SO WHY ARE YOU NOT SEEING SIMILAR GAINS?

you're using a
generic programme

Generic programmes do not work (ever). They don't consider your ability, injury history, your work-life balance & where you are in your current season.
One size fits....nobody!

You're not giving it
enough time

Training for 6-12 weeks over winter won’t make you a stronger, faster rider. You’ve barely developed any capacity to train maximally at this stage.
You need to train year-round.

YOU'RE NOT really training STRENGTH!

Less is more. Most generic programmes focus on volumes & intensities that are completely inadequate when it comes to developing actual FORCE.

Founder | STRENGTH & CONDITIONINg Coach FOR The Great Britain cycling team

Strength training is a genuine

‘game changer’

for cycling performance.

Can you really afford not to be doing it properly, or at all?

 

Cycling is an incredible sport.   Full of nuance and tradition.  It’s also shrouded in misinformation, pseudoscience and confusion – particularly when it comes to strength training.

As a professional strength and conditioning coach, I’ve been lucky enough to work with athletes across a number of different sports.

Of all the sports I’ve been involved with, cycling is the only one that still lacks a basic understanding of just how important strength training is, and more importantly; how to train correctly.

The pros have access to amazing support. But for everyone else, guidance is vague, it’s disjointed and in most cases…. it’s just plain wrong.

The result? Cyclists ignore strength training completely, or they train incorrectly. Either way, they miss out on huge improvements in performance.

I created The Cycling Coach because I want to give riders the tools they need to reap the benefits of strength training, for the price of a few nice coffees!

NO GENERIC PLANS.
NO FLUFF.

I've been working with The Cycling Coach for just a few months, building towards the 2021 season. I've strength trained throughout my professional career, but I'm now stronger than I have ever been by some margin!

I can already feel the benefit on the bike and it's still only December. I can't wait to let it rip on the road this season!

Roll on 2021!

FAQs

Outside of physically employing a coach (which is costly – typically £100-150 per month), The Cycling Coach is the only customised & dynamic solution on the market which adapts to your changing levels of fitness and personal circumstances. Every single programme (there are currently over 100) has been developed using proven methods of developing force, and tested in real life by fully qualified strength & conditioning coaches.

If your circumstances significantly change (e.g. you move to a new training phase, your availability to train changes, injury etc), you just need to fill in the questionnaire and you will be issued with a new, customised programme.  If you need to make changes to your existing programme, we can make individual changes (dependant on your membership level).

Not essential (at first), but strongly recommended!  For an effective carry over to cycling performance, you need to train the ability to produce maximum muscular force, which requires external resistance (i.e. weight).  Joining a gym or having equipment at home will provide the right environment for you to achieve this training adaptation.

Alan (Head Coach and Founder) is a British Cycling Road, Time Trial & Track Coach and an Accredited Strength & Conditioning Coach (ASCC) with the UK Strength & Conditioning Association (UKSCA), the professional body for strength & conditioning in the UK.  Not to be confused with Personal Trainers, there are only a few hundred ASCCs and they are typically embedded within professional sports teams and organisations (such as British Cycling, England Rugby, UK Athletics, Manchester City etc).  Although he works with professional athletes, Alan chose to remain private because he’s passionate about giving athletes of all abilities access to the right level of support.

Your strength programme is delivered via a third-party app called TrainHeroic (owned by TrainingPeaks).  The app is completely FREE and is available to download from App Store (Apple) and Google Play Store (Android).  Each time you complete your assessment, you will be given an Access Code to unlock your programme in TrainHeroic and your mobility programme will be unlocked within the membership site.

Yes, absolutely.  Not least because, being frank, if you have been following 99% of the guidance out there – then you haven’t been training for the right adaptation!  The Cycling Coach has developed 100s of individual programmes, tested on athletes of all abilities, including elite & professional athletes.  

You can indeed!  If you do, we will reward your commitment by giving you 2 months for FREE.

Yes of course.  You can cancel easily from inside your membership dashboard.  If you pay monthly, you will have access to The Cycling Coach until the beginning of what would have been your next billing cycle.
