Hi guys:) new here but not new to cycling. I’m looking for advice on a sustainable training plan. I am a competitive enthusiast that may dab in racing this spring. I heavy weight train three days a week and also do yoga 3 days a week. Would the low volume plan be best on the same days I weight train? To allow for proper recovery? Was thinking training on the bike am and weights late afternoon. I am a parent and also work 5 days a week. Thoughts-advice?
Yes. Split workouts on the same day, and full rest days are the common recommendation.
If you can handle the double days then that is a good way to do it. It’s good to not have cycling the day after your lifting days, especially if you are lifting legs. I will do cycling the day after upper body lifting and not notice any detriment. This may be different if you are really smashing it in the weight room though.
That’s what I thought just nice to be reassured:)
I definitely hit the weights hard, a lot of kettlebell training.
