Strength Training program

I have searched through the recent podcasts and I am pretty sure that one of the coaches mentioned a particular online strength training program or person who sells programs online but cannot for the life of me find the mention.

Does anyone have the link or know what I am talking about? It was within the last few weeks I thought (maybe it was older and that is my problem) and it was a specific strength training program that one person on the podcast was doing which he found was very compatible with cycling vs just generic strength programs.

Thanks!

I think they mentioned this outfit recently:

No personal experience though.

THANKS! Yes that was it.

Also worth considering - there are some very good “buy once” strength plans on TrainingPeaks:

I’ve got the one from Mikael Eriksson of Scientific Triathlon its $49 and includes a LOT of really helpful info for those new to strength training. Its this one: https://www.trainingpeaks.com/training-plans/other/tp-153422/strength-training-for-triathlon-19-weeks-intermediate-and-advanced and that link has some info on the plan.

That looks great as well. I have done some strength training before but I basically am a weekend warrior mid life type and unconditioned right now. I am worried that a regular strength program (non specific) would conflict with my low volume base that I am doing now (interfere with recovery).

I’ve got some weight to lose as well so working on that at the same time. Lots of conflicting goals.

I’m later mid life and doing 6-10 hours a week on the bike and lifting twice a week. Took awhile to get here but it is possible. I’m doing more aerobic work on the bike, with some intensity. TR plans have a lot of intensity and personally I’d dial back the intensity (way back) when you first start lifting. Like the first 2-3 months. Think of it this way - you are getting intensity in the gym and setting yourself up for long term success.
