Slots are limited for Team Training

Its time to sign up for team training!!! Dr Creer, Eric Ellis, and myself have worked hard to put together two different training programs both of which will require a minimum of 5 hours per week to complete. Both programs will start tentatively Jan. 6th and run for 8 weeks. Count on aprox. 4 total hours of testing split up over 6 days. 3 of which will be Jan 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, (first week back of school) and the other 3 will be 8 weeks later.
Here is the rundown:

Fitness testing pre and post both training programs which will include:
Hydrostatic body fat analysis
20 minute power output test
VO2 max test
Wingate test (sprint power output)

Training program #1
5 hours per week endurance type training
This training can be any type of training you prefer from running to cross country skiing, to biking or snowshoeing. As long as you get a minimum of 5 hours per week in and you are working in a moderate aerobic intensity it will be sufficient.

Training program #2
2 sessions a week of instructed weight training (aprox 1 hour each)
3 hours per week endurance type training (same restrictions as previously stated)

If you choose the second training program, it is mandatory to lift our prescribed workout ONLY! It is also vital that regardless the program you decide, that you stick with it. 5 hours per week is a minimal amount of training if your goals are to be competitive in the spring. Flexibility will be allowed if you want to spend more hours doing endurance activities.
The testing involved is well over $300 per person if you go anywhere else. (it will cost you nothing).
We have a lot of people volunteering their personal time for this project so please consider it carefully before making a commitment.
Please contact me with any question either by leaving a comment or by phone.

I want to join! pick me! pick me! I want to ride the bike faster than I have ever ridden it in the whole time I have been biking on a bike on the road. I would like to be on the part where we get really fast and the people see us and they are like "they are fast on their bikes on the road, maybe bikes should be allowed on the freeway." that is how fast the biking will be. I think that it should be good.

Do you think that we will be that fast?
