Reviews - What do customers think about The CTS Collection: Training Tips for Cyclists and Triathletes?
Also disappointing Sep 27, 2005
Like a previous reviewer I was also disappointed by the content of the book. Made up of articles (albeit slightly changed) appearing in magazines, this book provided nothing new or indepth or of a different viewpoint from other fitness/cycling/triathlon books. I wouldn't recommend to buy it. Coffee book material it is. if you want to get anything out of it and apply it to any training, then this isn't the book for you.
A great collection Jul 6, 2005
Sure this book may be a little basic for the super-experienced racers, but I think athletes of all ability levels will be able to glean some valuable tips from this volume. A great leisurely read and the training ideas have helped me immensley. Chris and CTS continue to impress.
Reprinted articles without technical substance Dec 18, 2003
I'm very disappointed in this book. The vast majority of the book are reprints from "Velo News" and "Inside Triathlon" with subtle changes. This is nice bathroom reading but hardly helpful with any actual training advice. Perhaps I had the wrong idea of the content. When I get my training program far enough along to look back in retrospect at what a great idea adopting the CTS philosophy was then maybe I'll pick this book up again and privately commiserate with the contributing authors that have had success. If your looking for a "How to" guide to putting together a training program then I would not recommend this book. If your like me and need help getting a structured approach to training then I'd recommend "The Triathlete's Training Bible" by Joe Friel.
