Cycling Inspired Workout 4

This total body strength workout incorporates more advanced exercises such as single-arm single-leg Romanian deadlifts and alternate leg push-offs for new challenge and intensity. The cool down places great emphasis on flexibility, and includes stretches for the hips. The hip flexors are a notoriously tight area of the body for cyclists (given the positioning while on the bike), as well as for individuals who spend the majority of the day in a seated position, such as working a desk-based job or spending long hours commuting in a car.

WARM-UP

For a general cardiovascular warm-up, perform 5-10 minutes of a low-to-moderate intensity aerobic exercise such as walking, riding a stationary cycle or using an elliptical trainer.
