A healthy combination of both would be best, skills are just as if not more important that pedal power!

depends on thier age, if we are talking young kids, like around that 8yrold area, then bike time and playtime. ride the bike, be kids. they will get thier plyos by jumping and swinging from playground equiptment and things like that.

i thay are hitting that pre teen, 12 year old mark, then it isn't crazy to start thinking about doing some off the track wrk.

now with that being said, track skills are essential, at any age. off the track work is there to suppliment your racing, not the other way around. lots of people get hung up with gym training (i'm guilty also), but the work you put in on the track is most important.

i think it holds some weight, pun intended.

it would be a nice addition if you have some extra cash, i don't know that i could justify buying it.

does he have the g-cog with it?

i haven't looked on the site or anything, but do you need both? it can get pretty pricey i would think.

certainlly a "next level" tool.

to keep this thread alive, and since any new thread seems to vanish......

i've backed off my gym training in favor of getting better on the bike. i still lift twice a week, but but it's very basic, i've replaced plyo days with bike skill days. and alot of times replace my "sprint" days with track days. i'm still sprinting, just not in my driveway. lol.

once the season gets closer (in the northeast we are winding down) i'll get more "race training" structured
