Core Strength for Cycling's Winning Edge Tom Danielson and Allison Westfahl
Tom Danielson is one of the most popular road cyclists in the world. But his star power extends beyond his affable nature and self effacing personality; as a key member of the Garmin Barracuda professional cycling team, Tom’s climbing skills are on display at major races like the Tour de France.
Danielson's advantage on the bike is his core body strength. Rather than focusing on leg strength development alone, Tom employs a total body training routine to build power and endurance. Tom Danielson’s Core Advantage illustrates more than 50 exercises that Tom uses to increase his performance, recover from injuries, and get an edge on his competition. In addition, the book lays out fifteen training programs that explain how to use the exercises for general fitness, injury prevention, and rehab. The book is illustrated throughout with photos of Tom performing the exercises, along with diagrams of key muscle and bone structures.
Co authored with Tom’s strength coach, Allison Westfahl, Tom Danielson’s Core Advantage will appeal to millions of cyclists who want to become better at the sport they love. The book is accessible to readers of all abilities by offering beginner, intermediate, and advanced options. All of the exercises can be completed anytime, anywhere, without the investment in a fancy gym membership.
In addition to offering readers the inside scoop on Tom’s core strength routine, the book will also provide a backstage pass to his personal thoughts on the subject. Anecdotes and accounts of how these exercises have directly influenced Tom’s riding are sprinkled throughout the book in casual, one page journal entries.
