Conditioning for cyclists with Jo McRae: part five – stability exercises for trunk, hips, and shoulders

Maximising power from the joints


Progressions

There are a wide range of variations on this theme but the most important element is that the ‘core’ of your body (including the ‘core’ of your hips and shoulders) stays rock solid.

Make sure the ‘core’ of the body remains rock solid during progressions from the basic exercise

Each progression starts with the basic ‘hover’ or vertical movement and then increasing the difficulty by moving the opposing limbs in different planes. With any variation, move slowly and hold the end position for three to five seconds in the same way as with the basic exercise.
