Cycling Interval Tuesday; Force builders

Break out the Big Ring, we are focusing on increasing our ability to produce FORCE.  More simply put, we are going to build Leg Strength. Its fairly logical that we as cyclist would want stronger legs. But WHY?  Force is half of the Power equation.  The more Force we can produce the more Power we can produce and we can be versatile on how we produce the Force.

Power = Force x Cadence

Bonus: You will never have to worry about walking your bike up a hill!
