Strength Exercises for Cyclists

Updated: Oct 12, 2020

Following from my previous post on how to get started with strength training for cyclists here are some important exercises you can do at home to help you get started.


Aim to do each workout once a week. When doing the exercises focus on good technique and take 1.5minutes between sets.


It's normal to feel soreness at the start, but be consistent and after a few weeks you will start to feel stronger on and off your bike.


Workout 1

Complete 4 sets of 10 - 15 reps



Split squat

Complete 4 sets of 8 - 15 reps on each side and the add weight when you feel confident
