Why core strength is important for cyclists

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.


When we refer to becoming stronger, we don't mean you have to pump iron like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but rather build strength. There is a difference. 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.
