This is a cycling site. I said twice - sometimes (cyclists are endurance athletes).

Extra mass not associated with the event and also moving that mass when power is not needed can be a liability.
Did you see the dad-brag gym video from 4 years ago? I/we are not anti gym at all, but added mass the last couple years has made junior noncompetitive in national road races (was a top 5-10).

It depends what you want, but sometimes, some gym work does not make you more competitive in the sport.
