Two Great Core Strength Books

If you need some great resources for strength training, "The Female Body Breakthrough" by Rachel Cosgrove and "The New Rules of Lifting for Women" by Lou Shuler and Casandra Forsythe are really good.

Your timing is perfect. I was just thinking about the off season on yesterday's ride. Thanks a bunch, Integrate. I will check those out!

Please feel free to ask any training questions that you've got. There's a post in the Training Forum detailing where a cyclists off season should begin: in the gym.

These books will definitely help on that front.

I saw this and decided to get The New Rules of Lifting for Women.
I have just started it but already love his tone. He is not talking over my head. I am hoping it will help me bring order to my lifting. I just work out. Not really a lot of knowledge. Doing excercises I have found on line. Really excited and hopeful.
UPDATE
Finished it and loved it. Now reading The Female Body Breakthrough.

I know this is going to sound kind of silly, but hey, wth. I have this book and its collecting dust on my shelf. I think overall it's a great book, great plan and full of great advice. I just can't figure out the damn chart on page 137, how the heck did you fill this out? I even passed the book to my husband a few years ago after I purchased it and he just rolled his eyes and tossed the book back on the table.

What am I missing here?
