about

The Time-Crunched Cyclistreveals the fastest way to get fit for road racing, century rides, gravel grinders, cyclocross, Gran Fondos, and mountain bike events.With elite cycling coach Chris Carmichael''s innovative, time-saving approach, busy cyclists will develop fitness, speed, and power in just 6 hours a week. Now powered by Strava, this updated third edition ofThe Time-Crunched Cyclisttraining program taps into the most popular cycling social network to help cyclists get fired up to crush their workouts, one segment at a time.

Through his popular endurance coaching service, Carmichael noticed that many busy cyclists are unable to make performance gains using conventional training methods; they simply don''t have enough time to train. So CTS developed a new approach-the Time-Crunched Training Program-to help cyclists achieve competitive fitness and power without the impossible time demands of traditional training methods.

The Time-Crunched Cyclistshows cyclists how to build fitness on a realistic schedule by tapping the power of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts. Cyclists learn the science behind this alternative approach to training before performing the CTS field tests to get a baseline reading of their fitness. Nine comprehensive training plans include effective time-crunched workouts, nutrition guidelines, and strength training to develop the speed and endurance for a wide variety of cycling races and events. The new Time-Crunched Training Plans cover:

- New and Experienced plans for criteriums, road races, and cyclocross

- New, Experienced, and Competitive plans for century rides and Gran Fondos

- Gravel racing and ultraendurance mountain biking plans

- Intermediate and Advanced plans for commuters

This new, third edition integrates Strava, the popular ride tracking and analysis program.Powered by Strava, the Time-Crunched program becomes interactive, social, highly motivating-and focuses riders on the training data that matters most. It also adds the Time-Crunched Diet, a sports nutrition approach designed to help riders optimize their power-to-weight ratio with new guidelines on eating behaviors and delicious recipes from chefs Michael Chiarello and Matt Accarrino. A new chapter on hydration and managing heat stress will show athletes simple ways to avoid overheating that lead to better performance.

The Time-Crunched Cyclistcan help you capture your best performance-all in the time you have right now.
