In-Season Strength Training Cessation Impairs Performance Variables in Elite Cyclists

Sammendrag

The present study investigates the effects of 8 weeks of strength training cessation following 25 weeks of strength training on strength- and cycling performance characteristics. Elite cyclists were randomly assigned to either 25 weeks of endurance training combined with heavy strength training [EXP, n=7, maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max): 77±6 ml·kg-1·min-1 (3x4-10 RM, 1-2 day·week-1)] or to endurance training only [CON, n=7, VO2max: 73±5 ml·kg-1·min-1]. Thereafter, both groups performed endurance training only for 8 weeks, coinciding with the initial part of the competition season. Data were assessed for practical significance using magnitude-based inferences. During the 25-week preparatory period, EXP had a larger positive impact on maximal isometric half squat force, squat jump (SJ), maximal aerobic power (Wmax), power output at 4 mmol∙L-1 [la-], and mean power in 30-s Wingate test compared to CON (ES=0.46-0.74). Conversely, during the 8-week competition period EXP had a reduction in SJ, Wmax, and mean power in the 30-s Wingate test compared to CON (ES=0.49-0.84). The present findings suggest rapid decline of adaptations upon termination of strength training during the 8 first weeks of the competition period in elite cyclists.
