Everyone knows I love a good short core power session—hence my morning core and yoga flow that I talk about all the damn time. Well, I’m not the only one. I interviewed a bunch of the cyclists on the Rally Cycling team about why they do core work, what they do and when they do it. And every single team member I talked to does at least a small core workout during the week—including during race season, though they dial it down then. Cyclists NEED core strength. The more you have, the more energy you save and the more power you can put out. To find out what they do and what moves to steal, check out the article on Rally’s site!
