1. TO LIFT OR NOT TO LIFT?
First and foremost, should you add strength training to your training program? For most athletes, the answer is a resounding “yes.” However, there are some athletes who really needn’t bother doing so. So let’s get that out of the way first. If you know that you’re a strong person, or if you come from a power sports background, you likely don’t need to add strength to your routine. You know who you are: you’re naturally strong. You’re the one asked to help your friends on moving day. You are the one who opens the lid on the jar that just won’t open. You’re the one who can shoot up short steep hills on the bike and leave your mates behind.
