We only get one body, so it's in our best interest to look after it in order to live a long, healthy and happy life!
exercise, stretch, eat well and have an active social life
What better form of exercise is there than cycling? The benefits of cycling are well documented. We see the articles in the papers and magazines and the memes on social media. And we know because cycling makes us feel great! But actually, the science tells that cycling alone isn't enough. We need to include resistance training to help maintain bone density and reduce the risk of Osteoporosis, counter the loss of muscle mass caused by aging, include functional exercises to maintain balance and agility through to our later years, stretch regularly and look after our muscles, ligaments and tendons to reduce the risk of injury and maintain flexibility.
It doesn't matter how old you are, NOW is always the right time to be committing to looking after your body and investing in your long term health.
WHY SHOULD YOU DO OFF THE BIKE TRAINING?
Training off the bike is important to your long term health, injury prevention and mental health. For many cyclists, cycling is their only form or exercise. However, cycling is a low impact sport and therefore does little to help improve bone density, something that's very important as we age, especially women who have a higher risk of Osteoporosis. Including weight bearing exercises in our weekly routine, to strengthen bones, as well as our ligaments, tendons and supporting muscles, helps reduce the risk of injury, now and as we get older. Using my experience of being a full time dance in my youth, years of training for various sports including triathlons, courses with the YMCA and studies for my degree, I have designed a series of strength and conditioning programmes and classes, for a range of abilities, including sport specific exercises that will improve performance on the bike, as well as general and long term health.
