Many of my riders know that I'm also a Personal Trainer, so I often get asked questions about all aspects of fitness. Warm-Up is a subject that comes up again and again. I've been using the Movement Prep Warm-up featured below for nearly 15 years.
Cycle training is an exclusively linear exercise and I believe it's important to activate the lateral movers as well as muscle groups that are not emphasized while riding. Keeping all muscle groups active will assist in continued powerful pain-free riding.
These exercises, videos and .pdfs come from the book Core Performance by Mark Verstegen & Pete Williams which should be part of any fitness professional's library.
