I did Pilates for a few years but broke my wrist about 4 years ago, by the time I was good to go back the class had closed. Recently got off my lazy arse and found a new class and now I’m really feeling the benefit. I ride a SS and now am able to grunt the bike up hills easier (well quicker) than I did before, just feel way more powerful, it’s the perfect complementary exercise to riding imo.

climbing/bouldering if that sounds interesting.
If the idea leaves you cold, have a look at TRX: http://www.trxtraining.com/learn/testimonials/pro-athletes/
Quite expensive for what it is (cheap compared to a gym membership, though) but a mate picked one up cheep off ebay and raves about how good a workout it is.Posted 6 years agothe teaboyMember
I’m a reasonably average biker and a reasonably good runner.
When I get tired, my form goes all over the place and I run/ ride like an uncoordinated mess, resulting in niggly injuries.
I guess I’m lacking in core strength?
Anyone have any good core workouts or tips?Posted 6 years agothe teaboyMember
Brilliant – thanks.
My brother will love you for the bouldering suggestion – he’s a proper climber and is obsessed.
Pilates and yoga sound good too. Just need to find some late-ish evening classes in Airedale/ Wharfedale. Anyone? – Googling isn’t much help.
I’ll look at the youtube stuff too. It sounds brutal. I like the idea of classes as I’m too good at picking and choosing the easy bits. What I want is a workout I can do from start to finish that hurts everything that needs to hurt!

google / youtube the 300 workout. Found it a great benefit to motivate as your competing against your own will power / stamina / the clock each time.
Works both your core as well as extremities and with some basic equipment (chin bar / kettles / box) can be done at home.
