Calling all cyclists! I have written four Strength & Conditioning workouts specifically with cyclists in mind. Freely available at https://bitfitter.app
 
Requires absolutely minimal equipment so very easy to do at home for most people. And each exercise has a demonstration video incase you are not too sure how to do it. (Watching the video’s is optional!!)
 
Why are these particularly helpful for cyclists? Strength in your core and shoulder muscles enables you to hold a more “aero” position (either on drops or tt extenders) for much longer. But even if that is not “you” then strong core and shoulders means you can cycle more efficiently, in more comfort, for longer.
 
**NB – if you are a runner then this WILL NOT KILL YOU 😉 it’s just not so specific. But will be writing the equivalent series for runners later this week.
