Cycling is a great way to get and stay in great physical condition. It can also be a tough discipline to prepare for. Here are some fitness tips that will help anyone prepare for cycling.
Lifting weights will make cycling easier. Consider riding up a long, steep hill. Most people have to stand up on their bike, pump the pedals with their legs and pull the handlebars from side to side to get traction. Recommended exercises include squats, deadlifts, pull-ups, bench-press. There is no need to lift heavy weights. Go light (bodyweight exercises are great for the desired results) and do high numbers of repetitions. Perform these exercises in a circuit fashion, like each exercise for 10 repetitions and repeat, or 45 seconds of an exercise followed by 15 seconds of rest and move to the next exercise.
Change Things Up
The body will get used to the effort needed to perform the same ride over and over. Switch up routes, distances and speeds on a regular basis. Incorporate these tips to really push the cardiovascular level: Ride sprints followed by riding slowly and repeat Ride up steep hills Change routes Track times on specific routes and try to beat the previous time with each ride
Swimming is tremendous all-around exercise for the body. It also requires the body to work anaerobically, which really improves the endurance level. Swimming will really help a cyclist by increasing the endurance limits of the muscles before they are overcome by the buildup of lactic acid.
Cycling is an excellent way to get into shape but it is hard work. Strength training, swimming and consistently changing the cycling routine are all ways to help the body become as fit as possible for the long, hard rides ahead Author Bio Adam is a personal trainer and cycling enthusiast based in Sydney.
