Raw Strength Module

It's no secret that the strongest cyclists spend time in the gym.  Lifting weights not only builds neuromuscular strength, it builds muscular endurance and fitness on a physiological level that can be easily translated into cycling prowess.

The Raw Strength module includes the following:

  • 9 weeks of training (1 “setup” week and 8 workout weeks)
  • Excel and .PDF files (Excel file contains links to exercise descriptions)
  • Progressive micro-loading creates constant progression
  • Reverse pyramid design creates neuromuscular and physiological muscle strength gains
  • Designed to slot directly into the first 8 weeks of my Base Module

About the Author:

After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science/Pharmacology, I continued my education with a doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. As I progressed through my education, I was able to apply the concepts I learned in the lab to my own daily workouts and goals. At the time, I was following some of the principles of traditional coaching and getting mediocre results. Frustrated, I realized that if I could apply all my physiology, chemistry, nutrition and training knowledge, I could “build a better mousetrap” not just for my own training, but for other athletes. With this goal in mind, I started Tailwind Coaching, to help cyclists [with busy lives and limited training time] become stronger, faster, fitter and healthier. And while I may not be a ex-ProTour rider, an Olympic Coach or even a prolific race winner, I am something that most coaches are not: a regular guy just like you who has a job, a family and a desire to be a stronger cyclist.
