HASH(0xa0df8c48) étoiles sur 5 The Best Training Book Available 23 septembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Having studied most of the works of Armstrong, Lemond, Hinault, Burke, Carmichael, etc. and having used personal trainers including Kirk Willett, the current Prime Alliance GM, I can say that this is the one book you simply cannot do without if you want to race a bicycle. Whether you want to train 100 hours a year as a first year racer, or are looking to rack up a thousand hours and get your first real pro contract, you will benefit from this text.
I work about a 50-60 hour week and raise a family. There is no way I could have achieved the level of cycling proficiency I have without this text. It makes the amount of time I decide to spend training pay dividends on race day.
This book has two potential drawbacks. First, it is possible to get too wrapped up in the minutae of planning each and every workout for the next six months. Friel offers literally hundreds of possible workouts to choose from, and a system for selecting workouts that will help you approach each ride with a specific purpose. So long as you have some ability to read and apply both principals and a suitable level of detail, this book can not be beat.
My second issue is that I have worn out the binding from so much use and now need to buy a new copy.

HASH(0xa0df8f84) étoiles sur 5 This book is not for everyone...Thank God 6 avril 2003
Par John Hill - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If your idea of a good season is to just ride, or be pack fill until the hills then don't waste your money. On the otherhand, if you can set goals, want results and need to raise your performance year over year then get this book. You have to read, understand and follow the content of this book closely. If you can, then you will be able to set up a year 'round training program which will provide the results you have been looking for. This book is technical. You will have to focus as with any effective performance program. No, you really don't need the expensive testing stuff. You can get the same test information with a cheap wind trainer or the recommended time trial tests. A bike, a good heart rate monitor, this book and a true desire to get faster (in this order)is all you need.

HASH(0xa11d60f0) étoiles sur 5 A Great Resource that Requires a Little Work 17 décembre 2003
Par Chad Davies - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is for someone who wants to race a bike and doesn't want to look foolish doing it. The book has everything you need to organize and create a training regimen that will lift your racing fitness to an entirely new level. Based on the concept of periodization, i.e.-training broken into four week blocks with scheduled increases in intensity and active recovery, the ideas presented by Friel will allow the reader to schedule and implement a year-long training plan.
The main drawback of the book is its complexity. The book never claims to be a one-size fits all sort of plan so there is a lot of information that will allow the reader to customize his or her own training. This can be overwhelming at first. The best approach to the book is to read it through a couple of times to get a feel for what is being said. Once this is done, the material will feel a lot less overwhelming. In any case, there is some effort to be put into understanding the book just like there is effort that must be put into training to achieve the result of better performance.
Short of going out and hiring a coach to do your thinking for you, this book is the best way to start training for competition.

HASH(0xa11d64a4) étoiles sur 5 This is all you need to get strong 31 mai 2005
Par Raoul Duke - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Hands down, Friel's book is the best on how to become a strong cyclist. I disagree with some of the previous reviews' comments that this book is too complicated; I found it relatively simple to follow. This book is way better than the Carmichael books in that it gives you specific information on how to design a training program to fit your specific needs. It has really great information on different workouts to make you stronger, proper nutrition, recovery, weight lifting, and stretching. If you buy this book and follow it, you will, without a doubt, reap incredible benefits in your cycling.

HASH(0xa11d654c) étoiles sur 5 Much better than the competion 31 janvier 2006
Par Timothy Byrne - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had read all the Chris Carmichael traning books, and found them lacking. There isn't enough detail about what lies behind his programs to allow one to adapt them very well.

What I like about Friel's book is that it lays out all of the principles behind the programs. Knowing the principles allows you to make reasonable adaptations to the programs. For me it's helped make good decisions concerning what to cut when I find myself short of time in some given week. Do I cut the long ride? Do I cut the power work? Would it help to add a couple of miles to my commute to make up for it? After reading Carmichael's books I was still mostly clueless when it came to making those calls. After reading Friel's I feel pretty confident that my decisions are at least not egregiously stupid.

The book might be too detailed if all you are looking for is a few simple programs you can copy, or some ideas for different sorts of training to add to your routine. The book would be overkill for that.

This is really a book for serious self-coached cyclists who want to plan a training season and who want to be able to make good trainnig judgements as they proceed through the season. It would also be useful for the coached cyclist who might be more strongly motivated if they understood more of the why and wherefore of their routine.
