Pilates training for cycling

In an abstract from the The Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research, a study was performed evaluating the relationship between Cycling Mechanics and Core Stability. The study revealed that core strength development might be a vital training component for cyclists.  Authors suggested that cyclists integrate a year-round core conditioning program into current training to promote lower extremity alignment while cycling.  Not only might this help performance, but could be essential for injury prevention.  Joseph Pilates refers to the core muscles as a person’s Powerhouse.  The Powerhouse is composed of the deepest muscles in the abdomen, inner & outer thighs, hips, buttocks and lower back.  Training and strengthening the Powerhouse should therefore enhance a cyclist’s performance and aid in injury prevention.
