Can anyone give me advice /send me a link to a typical(detailed) track specific training program? Preferably one that combines rollers, weights + time on the bike (preferably relevant to sprinting but endurance stuff useful too).
Many thanks

  • Well the programme would depend upon what even(s) you wish to ride
  • i dont ride track (want to tryit!) but have an interest in training for other sports i do, and your gym routine would probably look pretty similar to a 100m sprinters (squat and deadlift your main lifts)

    in terms of that check out http://www.higher-faster-sports.com/ its geared at running and jumping athletes but theres a big crossover with anything that needs explosive power.

    as for time on bike, from reading i know the GB sprinters have 3 hour sessions on the track and focus on different aspects of the race in each session.

    if you're an amatuer though i guess treat it like any sporting passion; hit the gym and train hard, and get on every local velodrome session that focus on the events/skills you wanna work on.

    and if you wanna get stronger, make sure to eat loads :)
