In The Time-Crunched Cyclist: Fit, Fast, and Powerful in 6 Hours a Week, Lance Armstrong s personal coach Chris Carmichael presents a revolutionary new approach to cycling training. The Time-Crunched Cyclist reveals the fastest way to get faster so that busy cyclists can build competitive cycling fitness on a realistic schedule. Complete with training plans, case studies, nutritional guidelines, and success stories, The Time-Crunched Cyclist is the book busy working professionals have been waiting for. Its proven concepts and training programmes enable cyclists to push the pace in the local group ride, have fun and perform well in local races, or tackle a challenging 100-mile fundraiser ride without committing to a high-volume training programme.
