It is logical, therefore, that the use of bicycles, outdoors and/or with the smart trainer in the home, is a fundamental part of your training. On the other hand, in order to bring on the road or on the rollers the best of their performance, it is essential to train with specific exercises the stability of the core, that area of the human body that - if properly worked - is essential for the control of the bike, to give the best thrust to the pedals and to avoid pelvic injuries such as pubalgia and lumbago as well as knee diseases.
The key? Core Stability
To train the core you can distinguish the training in two distinct phases: the first focuses on activation and training in isolation of the core muscles, in the second must be activated correctly the core in the execution of movements of daily life and sports. Typical core-activating exercises are those that involve complex movements in which we use both our arms and legs, as well as exercises in precarious conditions of balance. All the positions that force us to take action to keep the spine aligned significantly stress the muscles of our powerhouse.
