Periodised Programming

Muscle Activation Orientated

Stability Training

The Cycling Strength programme developed by Biokineticists at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa focuses on recruitment of crucial stabilisers around the lower limb, teaching fundamental movement patterns that translate directly into the cycling pattern, optimising single-leg stability, alignment and control through range of motion. We aim to improve their strength and endurance as weaknesses in stabiliser muscles surrounding the lower back and hips, as well as muscular imbalances and strength deficiencies increase the risk of overuse injury. Research has shown that 'heavy' resistance training has the most profound beneficial impact on cycling economy and time trial performance. In essence this programme will help take the thinking away from the 'accessory work' cyclists are often told to do and help transform your body into a more balanced, supple and stable cycling frame that is less likely to become injured and more likely to make meaningful progress in your cycling journey.
