My season was cut short by an injury, but I have no more events planned and soon it will be winter anyway. Now that I’m almost fully recovered, I decided to really commit to an off-season plan that prioritizes building strength and improving my flexibility. I want to come back stronger and faster in the Spring.
From what I can tell, Systm’s strength plans (including the stand alone plans) are mainly geared towards in-season strength & endurance maintenance.
I’ve used the plans in conjunction with cycling plans and have been quite happy with them. Now I’m wondering if I should return to the gym to build up the muscle that I will refine in later phases of my training.
Is my interpretation correct? If not, what plan would provide the best progression to develop maximum strength over 12 - 20 weeks? Any recommendations?
