During this interactive session, Joanne Bradbury will explain how core training improves a cyclist’s overall ability to sprint faster, climb hills more efficiently and improve muscular endurance on the bike. Joanne will demonstrate a variety of exercises, while participants perform them, using stability balls and their own body weight to strengthen the core and challenge the balance. She will also demonstrate a series of stretches that can be done in a minimal amount of time that specifically target muscles that tend to be tight on cyclists. Be prepared to do some work and leave with an arsenal of exercises to take with you to improve your cycling.
