Core Strength 1

In this yoga for core strength routine we strengthen the abs, obliques, lower back, and hips. Try to keep your core engaged throughout.

A strong core is crucial for protecting your lower back, generating maximum power and speed, and improving your control of the bike. Sit-ups are not going to cut it as you need to build core stability and endurance, as well as core strength. Yoga, as a bodyweight training system, excels in this area.
