As cyclists our quads and calves are the most obvious sign of our conditioning but what about your core muscles, are they important? As it turns out they are and if you want to get all the power out of your legs developing your core will not only do that but also allow you to feel physically better on long rides as you support yourself, using your core muscles on the sadlle and handlebars. It’s likely that your core muscles have had enough riding long before your legs are ready to give up. Bicycling Magazine published a nice core workout and if you’re looking to ride faster, longer and finish your ride stronger, who isn’t, this is the workout for you. Check it out at Bicycle Magazine – Core Training.
