Before'n'After #67 - Thomas P.

The ambitious amateur cyclist Thomas P. came to the YPSI 4.5 months ago because he wanted to improve his performance on the bike with structured, progressive strength training and optimized nutrition

With great success, as the current performance check with personal best values ​​shows

Sprint over 5s = 20% more power
Sprint over 20s = 26% plus
Max pace over 1min = 42% plus
