Core exercises and video

Developing a stronger core is one of the most important, but most overlooked areas of development when it comes to cycling. I'll be honest I found the idea of doing so boring, but following constant knee injuries caused by tight hamstrings and ITB and some mild back problems, last year my brother Chris, Clinical Director of Your Sports Therapist, put me on a Winter programme to develop my core.

The results over 2013 were brilliant. I suffered hardly any issues with my knee. My hamstrings were also a lot better (mainly helped by an exercise programme) but I found my performance was a lot better on the bike.

My brother has put together a blog which contains some exercises and also a video below. Enjoy!

While working out I was always instructed to do some exercises which were core and I didn’t knew that before but after watching this post I believe people are spreading the word and that’s nice.
