Integrating strength training into your training regime is crucial for cyclists and triathletes who wish to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. While cycling, running and swimming alone will improve your aerobic fitness and maintain your performance level, if you’re serious about getting ahead of the pack on race day; it’s time to think about strength training.

Strength training is important not only because it makes you a faster runner and cyclist (as Dr Merv explains in this short video), but also because strong muscles act as buffers for the tendons and helps to reduce overuse injuries.

Studies have shown that cyclists who do weight training in addition to their regular training significantly improve their performance within a couple of months (with higher power outputs and lower heart rate compared to those who did not do weight training).

In a similar study, results showed that runners who added gym training to their regular training improved their 5km time trial time by 40 seconds in only 12 weeks. Try and do that with any other legal training method!

Remember - strong is resilient, strong is fast!
