| "Hi Harvey –
I had my first big ride of the season at the end of Feb and had the best/most fun/easiest time in 6 years at Chilly Hilly around Bainbridge Island where I live.
I've been using your strength program since the beginning of the year and am off to my best start ever.

| "The Strength Training for Cyclists Quick Guide is an excellent summary of the complete program found in the Strength Training for Cyclists System. The Quick Guide begins with an overview of strength training in general. The middle has explanations and illustrations of the most important exercises. It ends with a discussion of periodization, training phases, the relationship between repetitions per set and muscle development plus more.
Anybody interested in Harvey Newton's Strength Training for Cyclists can get a good overview of the program before they take the plunge for the full manual and DVD (which I highly recommend). Anyone already following Harvey's program will benefit from having this guide in the gym (it's laminated!). While reading the Quick Guide between sets, I re-remembered several details of the program that I had forgotten (like the proper position for doing the one-handed rowing exercise) and learned a couple things (like the starting weight in an exercise should be about 60% of the maximum weight) that I had missed even though I've reviewed the manual and DVD every fall.
The Quick Guide is a bargain, suitable for use in the gym and will give anyone a better understanding of how to do, how much to do and why a cyclist should do strength training."
