The muscles surrounding your core play a critical role in your cycling performance. The abdominals, obliques, and spinal erectors provide the foundation for all muscular system movement. When your core strength is diminished you are more prone to poor hip control on the saddle which could lead to lower back fatigue and decreased lower body strength efficiency. A strong core will also help decrease upper body movement to conserve energy and maintain optimal riding position. Add this workout to your weekly cycling routine to give your core a boost in strength and conditioning. Aim for completing this workout 1-3 times per week to help increase your riding performance.
