The Cyclist's Training Bible

Since the first edition was written in 1995, cyclists have relied on Joe Friel's Training Bible for workouts, training programs and general advice about how to reach one's full potential on the bike. While seasoned cyclists will refer back to the book as a useful guide for refining their training or to gain knowledge about the new advancements made between editions, The Cyclist's Training Bible is perhaps most fruitful for as Friel puts it, "highly motivated riders in their first 3 years of training to race."

For those who love the methodical focus and reward that comes from a systematic training plan and are looking to become more competitive, Friel's book offers tools for cyclists to analyze their strengths and acknowledge their weaker skills to help hone and structure their own programs. Packed with worksheets, charts, visuals and a dense index and references for further reading, The Cyclist's Training Bible is an arsenal of encyclopedic information for ambitious riders.

For those already familiar with Friel, the entire book has been updated with a couple of key improvements to note. As power meters have replaced heart rate monitors for many as the preferred and more accurate means of analyzing training, Friel includes intensive discussions on the benefits of using power. For those without power monitors, Friel also has charts and various tests one can use to determine training zones.

The focus on training intensity is also part of Friel's discussion on periodization. Both fatigue and the need for ample recovery are constantly emphasized throughout the book as many focused and competitive athletes can struggle with knowing when to rest and let their bodies rebuild. Simply put by Friel, "fitness = workout + recovery."
