I have just recently gotten "into" riding a road bike, regularly. Regularly for me is 150-200 miles a month with my travel...though that is increasing. I see alot of training with the bike questions, but does anyone here go to a gym as well? I have always been all-around fit, but I was looking for specific advice re: lower body/core workouts that would strengthen my cycling. I'll take book recs as well. Thanks in advance!

The dumbell snatch. Power Cleans. One Leg Squats. Leg Curls. High rep Dumbell swings. Build your power and strength endurance. Drop upper body movements to a couple sets of the basics for 10-15 reps and a maintenance weight. Riding as little as you do the gym won't interfere with your riding training. The snatch and swings done for high reps (20-30) will probably give you the best transferrence of strength for cycling.
Search for the exercises and ideas on implimentation on Google.
