Again, Thanks a lot for the advice.
+1 for Starting Strength. They may or may not give you massive cyclist legs, but if were easy to do, we'd all have them by now. They will help you get massive in general though, if that's your goal. Probably the two most productive exercises towards that end.

I'm only worried about getting a bit bigger in my upper body. EDIT: I checked out Starting Strength on the wiki website FAQ and I'll be trying it out on tuesday for the first time. I'm going to be doing the "Wichita Falls Novice Program"

Another question on diet: am i correct in thinking on workout days i shoulc be eating more protein/carbs and lower fat while on non-workout days higher fat and moderate protein?

thanks

What makes SS so invaluable is it's instruction on how to properly squat, press, dead lift, bench press and power clean. It's worth buying/reading. Again, squatting and dead lifting will make you big all over. Dead lifting is especially good for your back and biceps' size
