Serious Workout for Serious Cyclists

February 15, 2010 | by Dr. Jess

Tour de France Innersport is proud to present our Cycling Workout for serious cyclists. Who may be a serious cyclist? A cyclist who lives, eats, and breathes cycling. A cyclist who puts time and energy into bettering his or her cycling performance. A cyclist who understands the concept of injury prevention. We are not necessarily talking about only elite, fast, and accomplished cyclists. We are talking about cycling passion. Are you a serious cyclist? Then, you’ll like our serious workout! Innersport thrives on researching effective and FUNCTIONAL exercises, meaning exercises that will directly impact your cycling stroke and performance as well as prevent injury. We don’t advise you to lie on your back and do a 100 crunches for cycling. You can functionally train your abdominals and core in a fashion that is functionally related to cycling. If you do a sport or activity that requires you to lie on your back and sit up, then crunches are for you. Even though cycling is a forward (and backward) motion, your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints actually have to function in 3 dimensions. One of the most important dimensions also happens to be the one that is most often overlooked, the Transverse Plane, or rotational plane. Even if you are not moving very much in the transverse plane or frontal (side to side) plane, your body still has to stabilize and prevent excessive rotational and lateral movements in order to move efficiently in cycling. Innersport has developed a workout routine to MOBILIZE, STABILIZE, and STRENGTHEN the entire body functionally for cycling, accentuating the all important and overlooked transverse plane. The purpose of the seminar is to review, instruct, and demonstrate all exercises you will receive via email.

Anything I need to bring…or do I just need to show in workout clothes. But I don’t need my bike, or cycling shoes, or anything like that?
