Item description for Workouts - In a Binder for Indoor Cycling (Workouts in a Binder) by Dirk Friel & Wes Hobson...

Indoor workouts on trainers and spin bikes are great opportunities to isolate weaknesses, work on drills, and more closely measure performance, but the preset courses of a stationary bike can quickly become boring. These spiral-bound, sweat proof workouts enable cyclists and triathletes to choose workouts geared toward their personal objectives, making indoor rides more interesting and productive. Each workout allows the athlete to use heart rate zones, perceived exertion, power levels, or a combination of methods to track performance and improve skills. The workouts are categorized by objective: endurance, force, speed skills, muscular endurance, anaerobic endurance, or power. The book can be used in conjunction with training plans for both triathlon and cycling and is the perfect solution for days when inclement weather threatens to cancel a ride.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Workouts - In a Binder for Indoor Cycling (Workouts in a Binder)?

Workouts in a Binder for Indoor Cycling  Feb 20, 2008
So far I think it is a good resource for cycling. I have not gotten through all the workouts yet, but the few I have tried are very good.
The book surprised me because of the smaller size. I guess I was looking for a normal 8 1/2 x 11 size book, but this is okay.
Any cyclist involved in gym workouts needs this.  Feb 7, 2008
The problem with most workout books is that they aren't designed to be used while in the process of a workout itself. Enter the spiral-bound, lay-flat and smaller 'Workouts in a Binder' series, of which FOR INDOOR CYCLING is the most practical. Here workouts are presented which use and also combine the three methods of heart rate, perceived exertion, power output for maximum results: workouts which can either stand alone or blend into an overall training regimen. Any cyclist involved in gym workouts needs this.

Used by Winter Training Spin Class  Jan 9, 2008
As a cyclist and instructor, I used this book last winter for an indoor cycling group that ranged from the first time triathlete to experienced ironmen! We used a 12 week program and followed the book as a guideline. Because everyone works at their own intensity, it works and motivates for all levels.

I even emailed Dirk, who responded with some recommendations! I still use this book in my basement for routine and guidance. It gives structure to workouts that can meander and go "no where", building strength, endurance and power for spring riding. Highly recommend! Don't let the jargon scare you, Dirk and Wes give many objective and subjective measures to self guide thru workouts.

I want a second edition!
Awesome Training Aid  Oct 11, 2007
This is a great tool to use for trainers... I am very impressed. The workouts are tough, and there is enough variety so that you don't get bored. The different types of workouts ensure that you get the right kind of workout... I am so excited to have something to help me get through the winter 'blahs' of cycling!
Great book for the serious cyclist  Mar 9, 2007
This book could be used alone or as an additional resource to Joe Friel's book, the Cyclist's Training Bible. This book focuses on specific workouts which include endurance, speed skills, muscular endurance, power, force, and anaerobic endurance, all of which are part of Joe Friel's book.

Any level of cyclist could benefit from this book, but I think it is probably intended more for the serious recreational cyclist or racers. If you follow the workouts as written, many of them can be very intense and grueling, especially the power and anaerobic endurance workouts. I've been using this book for about two months and have increased by intensity over the last several weeks, and I have definitely seen noticeable improvements in my cycling out on the road.

For anyone who is serious about getting stronger and faster on the bike while developing better technique, this book is a must have resource.
