Training Nutrition Thursday: One of the most common requests I get from athletes is: Help me get to “Race Weight.” Endurance athletes often want to reach very lean weights, while maintain very high power and an ever-improving strength to weight ratio. They imagine faster climbing and get ready to do what it takes to lose fat.
But, it’s not always so easy. In fact, it’s rarely easy. While I see it as my job to help athletes do it, when appropriate and within limits, in a healthy manner, I never claim that it’s easy. While I help most all athletes improve strength to weight ratio, not all of them will meet their dream “race weight.” And, in my book, that’s okay. With a goal of improved strength to weight, performance, recovery, and health, there’s more to realize and no one-size fits all.
Here are the top 5 challenges athletes face when striving for race weight.
