The Time-Crunched Cyclist: Fit, Fast, and Powerful in 6 Hours a Week presents a new way to achieve competitive fitness and power without the impossible time demands of traditional training methods. The founder of one of the most successful endurance coaching businesses, 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 the way cyclists have for 30 years. Drawing on his 20 years of experience working with Lance Armstrong and busy career professionals, The Time-Crunched Cyclist shows cyclists how to build fitness on a realistic schedule by emphasizing the power of high-intensity interval workouts. In just 6 hours a week, cyclists can develop the snap, endurance, and strength they need to push the pace in the local group ride, have fun and perform well in local races, or tackle challenging century rides.
