When athletes hear the words "weight training", they automatically think of a gym set up with many athletes bench-pressing and squatting thousands of pounds. "Weight Training" can take on a different approach.
Over the winter and off season, many multi-sport athletes have a tendency to put on a little extra weight. The struggle there in lies in how to best get back down to the proper "race weight." Many athletes have an ideal "race weight." If you race at a weight too heavy, you will lose performance because you are carrying excess pounds. Race a weight too light than your ideal "race weight", you will more than likely lose performance because you have lost muscle with the drop in the weight. The trick comes in finding your ideal "race weight."
