Weight Lifting and Power Lifting
It is not obvious to the uninitiated that the core muscles or the hamstring muscles are important to maximize weight lifting ability. further, some aerobic capacity is also important in these muscles to help with recovery efforts between lifts. PowerCranks is probably the most efficient way of training this aspect of the weight/power lifters conditioning. Check out the video. 20-30 minutes 3 days a week is probably optimal until this capability is well-developed then 20 minutes once a week is probably adequate for mainenance purposes. In addition, it is also beneficial to get on the bike for a few minutes before every workout as a warm-up, to ensure all the muscles are warm and ready to go.
