Off-Season training is the best time of year to improve your cycling position. The 0ptimal Tri-position balances aerodynamics and comfort, without negatively impacting a triathlete’s ability to get off the bike and run — FAST!
Muscle recruitment patterns are position-specific (which is why I avoid fitting before races). Any changes, no matter how beneficial long-term, require adaptation and refinement.
I believe it is better to identify a good position off-season. where light to moderate training loads ensure the development of strong stabilizers and a good foundation for racing.
Also a good time to improve pedaling technique and efficiency!
