Here’s a video featuring the top 7 strength building exercises for cyclists. These strengthening exercises can all be done in ten minutes in the comfort of your own home, with little or minimal equipment. Most of them require only a yoga mat. The exercises focus on building leg and core strength, with some upper body strengthening work thrown in as well. The exercises are aimed at developing strength and stability, which are of course vital for cycling. Get strong in the winter so you can enjoy a great summer on your bike! These exercises were developed by the expert coaches at Cadence Performance in London, England. The exercises are best for intermediate to advanced exercisers/athletes, not for beginners.
These 7 strength building exercises for cyclists include the Mountain Climber (upper body, hips for stability in saddle), Renegade Row (core, triceps, biceps), Goblet Squat (quads, hamstrings, glutes, core), Lateral Squat (gluets, quads, hamstrings, strong knee alignment), Split Squats (quads, hamstrings, glutes), Front Plank (core, glutes), and Back Extension (back muscles).
Just three of these ten-minute workouts per week will help you to improve your cycling efficiency and power.
