5 Essential Gym Exercises For Weedy Road Cyclists

As road cyclists we aren’t especially known for our upper body strength and rippling muscles. However, having stronger arm and core muscles will actually make you faster on the bike as well as aiding injury prevention. Ollie and Si hit the gym to show you 5 basic workouts specifically designed to make you cycle faster.

Thanks to Stanza Fitness for their help and expertise in this video. (And for lying about the weights Ollie and Si were lifting)

It’s vital that you master the correct technique and form for these exercises in order to avoid injury. Don’t use larger weights until you feel confident that you have progressed.

Do you pump iron to help you ride faster? Which exercises do you prefer? Let us know in the comments below 🏋️‍♂️
