Core Strength

Why do we work on our Core as Cyclists?

Your core stabilizes every part of your body, and that allows us to put more power into our pedals. Without a strong and stable core you will fatigue faster, leading to low back pain, pedal stroke abnormalities, hamstring tightness, and numerous other issues that can keep you off the bike

In Cycling we focus on the “core” instead of “abs”. The big reason is that your core is everything from your shoulders down to your hips. Having a six pack looks great but does nothing for you on the bike. Having toned abs is not functional for a cyclist, it will not give you the strength you need to stay injury free or increase your pedaling efficiency and power
