8 Bodyweight Exercises Every Cyclist Should Do

For some cyclists, cross-training can get monotonous but bodyweight exercises offer you a chance to change things up—no waiting in line at the dumbbell rack, it’s cost effective and you can perform them literally anywhere. Bodyweight exercises challenge you to work your entire body—perfect for cyclists trying get in peak performance shape.

You can approach these workouts in a variety of ways. You can do a singular exercise, you can superset two exercises back-to-back without taking a break or you can do a circuit of exercises for time or reps.

Two workouts a week is all you need to make some real gains and you can knock out a great workout in fewer than 30 minutes. Don’t forget to adjust your rest, reps and sets to push your body to adapt to change and get stronger.
