I have a 16lbs kettlebell that I haven’t used and I haven’t really been strength training at all. I do play soccer for cross training once a week but that’s not much. I’m considering starting some light strength training to build a bit of core strength for racing season but I’m aware that it’s somewhat late in the training cycle (I’m mid-way through build).
Would it be best to hold off altogether and start next base phase? Or is there a compromise that wouldn’t screw with my on the bike training?
I would love any recommendations (also with regards to exercises, reps, number of sets and days, progression or websites/apps with training plans/videos etc).
