    From steep inclines to slick terrains, Cycling Anatomy, Second Edition, will ensure you are prepared for every challenge that comes your way.

    Using the same methods that elite cyclists use, you can employ this well-rounded collection of 89 strength and conditioning exercises to maximize cycling power, speed, and endurance to improve your cycling performance. Each exercise includes clear step-by-step descriptions and full-color anatomical illustrations that highlight the primary muscle being used. You’ll find dozens of variations that use a wide range of training equipment so you can modify exercises to target specific areas, and minimize common cycling injuries.

    The Cycling Focus section of each exercise includes illustrations of the active muscles involved in cornering, climbing, descending, and sprinting to show you how the exercises are fundamentally linked to delivering maximum power to the pedals. Using tried-and-true strength training principles for all parts of the body, Cycling Anatomy will help you develop a training plan based on your individual needs and goals.

    Whether you’re training for an upcoming century ride or just want to top that killer hill with strength to spare, Cycling Anatomy will help you reach top performance, avoid injury, and ensure you get the most out of every ride.

    CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. Cycling Anatomy, Second Edition Online CE Exam, may be purchased separately or as part of the Cycling Anatomy, Second Edition With CE Exam, package that includes both the book and the exam.
