Lose Weight for Racing

by Velocycling

I was a competitive cyclist in college, and won a few races, but then I graduated. That's when my time was consumed with work and I started to gain weight.

I would really like to get back into racing, so I need to start with losing 20lbs and then I can get back into my cycling routine.

structured workout plan for athletes
by: Monica

Avoiding the cubicle bulge is pretty hard to do. It happens to everyone but now that you're ready to move on the first thing you must do is find a workout plan and commit to sticking to it for at least 6-8 weeks.

Not knowing whether you're a guy or a girl, how old you are, what your current exercise routine is and how you eat makes it pretty tough to give more specific advice so the #1 tip I have is to get started with a 5 day workout plan that's simple, fun and focused on fatloss and endurance so you can get back to racing as soon as possible.

Avoid plans designed by the bodybuilding crowd and make sure that whatever you choose is athlete friendly. I highly recommend Core Performance Essentials: The Revolutionary Nutrition and Exercise Plan Adapted for Everyday Use by Mark Verstegen.

If you're a former athlete you will love Mark's training philosphy and the results too. I've met Mark and have been to his facility in Tempe and his workouts are simple and super effective. One of his biggest success stories is Jessi Stensland.

Check him out at Athletes Performance (video below) talking about core training with the TRX Suspension Trainer. You can find tons of suspension trainer workouts here on the site. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter to get more workouts each week.
