Before commencing a core stablility and weights program, we recommend you get a Muscular and Skeletal screening to assess your current strengths and weaknesses. We recommend Kate, Wendy or Sam can do this ‘screening and assessment’ for you. Any imbalances or specific weaknesses identified can then be addressed both on the bike and also through specific core and stability exercises, prescribed by a Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Strong core muscles will ultimately help you ride faster. To learn how to correctly use your abdominal muscles whilst you cycle, Kate, Wendy and Sam use ultra sound techniques to show and teach you how to activate these muscles.
