From the podcast I remember the recommendation is to do strength training the same day as cycling workouts so that rest days can be real rest. I’m also aware that the two sessions should be separated by as many hours as possible to avoid confusing the training signals the body receives.
I do my cycling sessions in the afternoon, usually finished at 5.30pm. Does anyone have any ideas whether a strength session before bed, starting about 9.30pm, would compromise the adaptions from the cycling session. Moving the cycing sessions to the morning is not possible.
I do cycle training three times a week, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, so Sunday can be a weights session while still retaining a full rest day before Tuesday’s bike session but I am struggling to fit in a second weights session. I never feel like it on Tuesday or Thursday night, but if I knew it wasn’t going to have a negative impact on the cycling adaptations I would be more inclined to push on and do it.
Thanks for any ideas.
