Über das eBook

This book is a solid introduction to mountain bike training that is based on training science foundations and discipline-specific features (e.g., cross-country and marathon).

Details and overviews of all basic areas of training methodology are presented: aspects of heart-rate-oriented training, periodization of training into different phases and advice on how to plan and evaluate your own training diary.

Information and suggestions on strength training and stretching are accompanied by tips on optimal and performance-enhancing nutrition. The book finishes with descriptions of technique and mental training.
