I’m focused on different type of training that many are not doing it! Core strength!!! Strength training doesn't mean becoming a musclehead. Nor does it mean you have to live on protein shakes, wear tiny shorts and a vest and liberally apply fake tan.
A strong, well-conditioned body can have numerous positive impacts on bike riding and general health.
It can help prevent injury, increase stability and cycling efficiency, improve bone health and even reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
Effective strength training should be apart of every cyclist’s training, but is still somewhat ignored, with most people instead, focusing primarily on aerobic fitness. Of course, this is any cyclist’s priority, but strength training shouldn’t be disregarded.
A strong core will also aid cycling efficiency. Without one, stability on the saddle and the lumbar/pelvic position on the bike will suffer, resulting in excessive side-to-side movement, or rocking.
Strength training should be incorporated into cyclists’ training. ————————————————————
What do you think, why core strength is important for cyclists?
