You may perfect your riding form and spend hours on the bike, but to be the greatest cyclist, you need to work off the bike. This is where muscle-building programs come in.
By working out at the gym, you may earn some great benefits when you go back on your bike (not just the ego boost of looking good in your favorite jersey, though that's great too).
To build muscle, you’ll first and foremost need to start resistance training about two to three times a week. Primary and secondary exercises will be the focus of these workouts.

Muscle development requires protein intake. 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight (0.4 per pound) during rest days. Thus, a 70-kilogram (154-pound) individual needs 56 grams of protein.
Dehydration may hinder muscular development after a long, hard exercise. Sweat and fluid loss dry muscle cells. Returning to balance is these cells' first goal.
More isn't more in resistance training. To build muscle and strength, you must recover adequately during and between exercises.
