6 Exercises to Improve Your Power on the Bike

If you're only riding your bike, chances are you're not tapping into your full potential. To get faster and improve your power, you'll need to incorporate specific exercises to build the strength you need.

While core training is the place where your power begins, strength and power are built through squats and deadlifts. By switching your focus to the lower extremities you'll not only create structural balance, you'll also increase your force production, which will make you more efficient on longer rides.

Try these six exercises at least once per week during the season and twice per week in the offseason to improve your performance on the bike.
