How do PC's train these muscles used between 11-1 o'c, very little force is required to take the loose pedal/crank from 11 to 1 o'c, the same applies between 5-7 o'c. What muscles do you believe they are training. From your post it appears these are the only muscles PC's are supposed to be training as no training of muscles is needed for unweighting, so why the need for 6 months of continuous training.
