Episode 77- Harvey Newton- Strength Training for Cyclists

Harvey Newton
Harvey Newton is one of the original coaches to help cyclists use strength training to get fitter, faster, and stronger on their bikes. I had the honor of sitting down and talking with Harvey on his thoughts on strength training for cyclists (and triathletes), and his thoughts on a number of topics:
-Harvey’s work sharing strength training for cyclists
-The importance of NOT doing a million “functional” exercises
-Should cyclists be performing Olympic lifts (in their entirety)
-What’s the difference between Strength Training vs. Resistance Training
-Developing Strength for your SPORT, not the weight room/Squat Rack
-The Evolution of the modern-day ultra-light professional cyclists
-High performance training vs. Recreational rider training And much more. 
Harvey is a wealth of knowledge and experience, and is no sharing that through his new project with SportsEd TV. 
We had a few chuckles, shared a few moments of “that still happens/ is happening!” as well as learned a bit from each other. It’s a great episode with lots of interesting take homes for coaches and athletes alike.
