The Real Secret Behind Lance Armstrong's Success?


In a sport where 90% Of The Athletes Were Using Performance Enhancing Drugs, Lance Armstrong Was Far and Above The Pack. 
The secret is not a secret at all. He just trained harder and smarter that most of the competitive cyclist of the day.  Now its your turn to lead the pack from start to finish!
Cycling

The focus of the Cycling Programs is to develop muscular endurance and strength. The program will begin with lower weights and higher repetitions to create a solid conditioning base for the muscles. Then, a transition from this conditioning base into strength by using heavier weights and less reps as the weeks progress will occur.

Throughout the length of the Cycling Programs, the manipulation of the sets and repetitions for each exercise will be based on periodization concepts that involve changing the intensity and the volume of the workouts.

The starting point of the program is based on an initial fitness level. With feedback, the actual progression of the program will follow the body's unique adaptation process to exercise. Fine tune the program to include all the exercises that feel the best.
