This seems like a question that must have been answered definitively by now but I searched around and didn’t find what I was looking for. If your searching skills are better than mine, feel free to just point me to where the answers lie.
So my TR program (currently SSBLV1, to be followed by SSBLV2, SPBLV, Gravity LV, rinse and repeat) has me doing structured trainer workouts M, W, & F. I tend to ride outdoors on Saturday mornings (not very hard rides - more social in nature with a lot of stops) and I usually just rest and have family time on Sundays.
I’d like to incorporate some strength sessions (nothing crazy - 30ish minutes of basic movements; push, pull, hinge, squat, core) a couple or 3 times a week but I’m not sure about the best approach that would work for me. I’m not going to be able to work out twice a day as often suggested (work and family obligations) but I can get up and get after it in the garage as early as I’d like (nobody misses you before 7am…) My basic options are to do the strength work before the 1 hr trainer workouts on Mon & Wed (which would allow me to sleep a little more on Tue & Thu) or I could do them on Tue & Thu mornings.
What are the feelings about the pros and cons of each and is one a clear winner?
