I’m not a competitive cyclist but I really want to lose some weight and be able to hang with the local fast groups. I do OK for a big guy (6’5" and probably 40 lbs to lose) but there’s lots of room for improvement!!
I’ve tried juggling cycling training, incorporating strength training, and counting calories to lose weight and I just can’t for the life of me strike the right balance. I feel great after strength training and am strong on the bike, but after a few days the fatigue catches up and I struggle to get on track. I’ve gone through so many cycles like this I’ve lost track.
I’ve previously worked with a local coach who was supposed to incorporate nutrition with cycling training but he only prescribed workouts and said don’t eat snacks…Ok I can do that on TR for alot cheaper!!
Any overall tips you could share? There’s so much good info on each of these topics but I’m just out of my depth making them work in practice. I know coaches aren’t cheap, but maybe a good one for a few months could set me on the right track? Would it make sense to focus on one component, nutrition for example, and work with an RD for a bit? Then a strength coach and roll through TR LV plans?
