Cycling is great for cardiovascular training and building leg strength but without a stable core, you won’t be able to ride efficiently.
Although your legs provide the most of the power while you ride, the core muscles—the abdominals and lower back—are the foundation from which all movement, including the pedal stroke, stems. The core keeps the body stable on the saddle and improves efficiency by preventing excessive side-to-side movement. If you have weak core muscles, your body will overcompensate with other muscles making your rides less efficient.
Improving your core strength will ultimately improve your riding, so if your workout routine includes spin classes make sure it includes core training as well. Here are 8 great studios in Los Angeles where you can put your core strength to the test while spinning.
Every ride at the House is a full-body, fat-burning workout that incorporates interval training designed to produce real results, real quick. When the lights dim low and the beats start bumping, you can’t help but turn up the resistance. With each climb, sprint and jump, you become stronger both mentally and physically. Just when you think you can’t keep going, you look up to see a room of riders who are still fighting and all of a sudden, you realize nothing can hold you back.
