Core exercises for cyclists
#1
Hi there, it's the offseason time.
Good moment to work on your core and overall balance|strength, so that you are ready for 2020 cycling action.
I am now compiling information about core training - videos, blogs, articles - and would like to hear your routine and exercises. Do you follow youtube videos? Or make your own training program? Or have assistance from professionals?

An example: 7 minute workouts, HIIT, plank exercises 1-2minutes and side planks

Thanks

I bought a basic program from the Tapp brothers. I particularly like the body weight eccentric workout.

Gosh, I missed your reply.
Thanks for the video, Justin! I will find time to take a closer look and try out their excercises.

Old thread. I will reply anyway. I alternate cardio days 10-25 miles on a bike with resistance exercise - weights and resistance bands. One rest day a week and one day of only stretching and yoga. I will also stretch and do a short yoga routine after a bike ride.

I've tried doing yoga after a hard 20 mile ride and was falling flat on my face. I was the only guy and I think all the women thought I'd been drinking; my best position- the "death pose"!
Take care,
