Most endurance athletes are concerned about their weight. They know that every extra pound slows them down. Yet normal dieting and fad weight-loss programs don’t work for athletes who need to fuel their training.
Cyclists, runners, triathletes, and swimmers need Matt Fitzgerald’s Racing Weight Quick Start Guide, the first weight-loss training plan for endurance athletes. By applying all the principles of his best-selling book Racing Weight, endurance athletes will accelerate their season goals and race leaner and faster than ever before.
Athletes will devote 4 to 8 weeks to starting a weight loss of 5, 10, or 20+ pounds. The weight will come off quickly by following a schedule of high-intensity workouts, strength training, and a menu of calorie-restricted, high-protein meals and snacks. Low-volume and high-volume training plans help athletes maintain fitness even while they focus on weight loss.
