So, I am going to start my off season program in a few weeks, which will consist of mid-volume base (minus one day) plus two days of strength training in the gym. I am really keen to raise my FTP as high as possible and keep my weight reasonably the same as my main event for 2019 is the Mount Washington Auto Road Hill Climb.
To my question, to help increase strength I am thinking about creatine during maybe base and build for my gym workouts. I understand that I will gain a few pounds of water weight but I’ll be in the trainer as I will not brave the New England winters. Once I get outside I’ll drop the creatine and the weight gained but hopefully keep the muscle and strength with an increased FTP.
Am I crazy? Or is this a logical plan?
