Racking up those weekend miles on the bike can have your body bent all out of shape. Hunkering down to get QoM’s, or gut busting your way up a climb can leave you body a little worse for wear. We’ve teamed up with Choose Cherries to bring you a selection of 5 awesome yoga videos.
Contrary to what most people think, yoga isn’t all about spiritual awareness and meditation. There are many different forms of yoga out there, but the one we’ll be looking at focuses more on core strength and flexibility.
Having a strong core doesn’t just mean a six-pack. Your core muscles play a vital role in your cycling performance. This group of muscles help keep you supported on the bike and able to maintain a strong riding position. A developed core always helps prevent early on-set muscle fatigue, and promotes a speedier recovery from exertion.
Yoga is the ideal ground workout for cyclists. It not only builds strength and flexibility, but it also can help take your mind away from the daily stresses of life.
Another popular misconception is that if you have an active lifestyle, you can eat what you want. A healthy body needs the right kind of food and fuels to get going and keep you performing at your best.
