Physiological and Psychological Adaptations of Trained Cyclists to Spring Cycling Camps

Introduction To accumulate higher amounts of specific training hours during winter, cyclists from areas with snow are frequently involved in preseason cycling training camps (CTCs), a popular procedure in several endurance sports (Hawley and Stepto, 2001). CTCs seem to be an excellent way for them to initiate outdoor training and quickly increase their training volume. In Canada, cyclists racing at the regional, provincial and national levels spend much of the winter season indoors on a cycling home-trainer, cycle outside with the now popular fat bikes or

Effects of indoor cycling associated with diet on body composition and serum lipids

Effects of indoor cycling associated with diet on body composition and serum lipids

Study aim: To determine the effects of indoor cycling training combined with restricted diet, lasting 12 weeks, on serum lipid concentrations in obese women.

Material and methods: Twenty women aged 23.8 ± 3.6 years were randomly assigned into two groups: control (C) and experimental (E), the latter subjected to indoor cycling at various loads, 3 sessions weekly, every session lasting 45 min, combined with restricted diet (about 1200 kcal daily) for 12 weeks. The following variables were recorded: body height and mass, BMI, relative body fat content (from 7 skinfolds), fat-free mass, triglycerides, cholesterol and lipoproteins (HDL, LDL, VLDL).

Results: Significant increase in HDL and significant decreases in all other variables (except body height) were noted only in the experimental group.

Conclusions: Indoor cycling associated with restricted diet is an excellent option in controlling obesity and serum lipids.
