Reviews - What do customers think about Base Building for Cyclists: A New Foundation for Endurance and Performance?

Great book  Jul 16, 2008
I wish I had this book when I was racing. The book goes into some great reasons to train at lower zones to teach your body to use more fat for fuel, rather than carbs. Great sample workout plans are included, as well as weightroom and stretching exercises. This book, however, relies heavily on the use of a powermeter, which are expensive (most are more expensive than my bike). If it had an alternative way to find your lower lactate thresholds, other than a powermeter, it would be better for the financially-challenged. Other than that, a great book that I would highly recommend.
Excellent resource for endurance training  Feb 29, 2008
I'm training for my first 200 mile ride this May and wanted to find a guide to help me maximize the small amount of time I have to train. This book is easy to read and follow, and I'm really seeing results. The material covers race training as well so it would be useful for people who want to train see gains for racing. The most difficult part is keeping the intensity low because it's my natural inclination to want to push it to the max.

On a recent 100 mile ride, riding at a lower perceived exertion rate than I ever have, I finished slightly faster than last year, *and* feeling refreshed. I credit all the base training I did this year following the plan in the book with my success.
Cyclist book  Jan 13, 2008
I purchased this book as a Christmas gift. It arrived within a short time and the recepient was well pleased with the book.
This book unlocks the keys to racing success!  Dec 26, 2007
AWESOME!!! Thomas Chapple shows that he is a very skillful teacher!Base Building is right on the money! It takes you through step by step of creating a stronger, healthier, and fitter bike racer. The logic behind the concepts are sound and based on science. The style of writing is understandable & witty. You will feel like Thomas is having a conversation with you. It's like having your own highly qualified coach with you whenver you need him. I still find myself referring to the book often. I have read many different cycling books and this is the only one that dedicates in itself to the most important step of training: the base period. Thomas sheds considerable light on a topic few really understand, he makes very applicable to the needs and expectations of each rider. If you bought only one book on training this should be the one. After reading "Base Building", all of the previous books that I've read on training for cyclists make alot more sense to me. Well Done Thomas!
Great Book Builds on Friels Bible  Mar 17, 2007
This is a great book. Read Friels Bible for the big plan and then read this to help implement. Its for those who like detail. Well thought out and written.
