Cyclists Benefit From Pilates
Cyclists benefit from Pilates exercises. Many cyclists’ performance concerns are optimizing their power-to-weight ratio, increasing their maximal aerobic capacity, or developing max speed. Pilates targets the core muscles that help stabilize a rider on the bike, teaching them how to maintain an inner core-strength connection while the leg limbs move. So by improving core strength, cyclists can increase their power output, riding harder and longer. When it comes to building a more robust, leaner body, Pilates and cycling are perfect partners. Pilates builds strong core muscles and strengthening weaker areas caused by various factors.
The stronger your core, the more powerfully you can cycle. Cycling naturally builds muscles around your glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves, providing a stable base to incorporate a Pilates Reformer workout for maximum physical results.
