There are things you come across in cycling that you can ignore: jerk drivers, your buddy’s squeaky chain, anyone who calls you Lance Armstrong. And then there are things that you shouldn’t ignore—like your core muscles.
“Your core stabilizes every part of your body, and that allows us to put more power into our pedals,” says Mike Durner, a cycling and certified strength and conditioning coach with Carmichael Training Systems. “With a weak core, everything else in your body will fatigue much more quickly.”
Notice that Durner is using the word “core” and not “abs.” That’s for a reason. “Your core is everything from your shoulders down to your hips,” he says, adding that toned abs alone won’t give you the strength you need to keep your back injury-free and your power steady on tough climbs.
But not all core exercises are created equal. Some are downright useless. If you want to get a strong mid-section, try these six moves—and cut these two common core exercises out of your routine.
Variations on Planks
How to Do 'Em: By now you probably know the basic plank move: Get into a push-up position, then stay there. However, once you can do a basic plank for one to two minutes, you need to start adding in modifications to see gains. “Hold up an arm or a leg, or your opposite arm and leg at the same time,” suggests Durner. When those get too easy, put one foot or one hand, then both, up on a medicine ball.
How to Do 'Em: To perform windshield wipers, start by lying on your back with your legs straight up in the air and your arms out to your sides. Slowly lower your legs to the left, then bring them back up to center before lowering them to the right. Beginners can start with bent legs, then gradually work towards straightening them.
How to Do 'Em: Lying on your back, bring your feet in toward your butt, then raise your hips up towards the ceiling. “Make sure there’s a straight line from your shoulder blades to your knees,” says Durner. Beginners should work simply on holding this position for 30 seconds to one minute. More advanced athletes can do reps of lifting and lowering motion, then work on holding the bridge for longer periods of time. When that gets easy, lift one leg.
How to Do 'Em: Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width, knees slightly bent, shoulders back, and chest tall. Using a cable-pull machine with a single-hand attachment, or a rubber resistance band set up to your side, grab the handle and take a step away from the strap, so there is tension on it. Start with your hands close to your chest and press straight out keeping your shoulders, arms, and hips straight ahead. The cable or band will try to rotate your torso; resist this rotation. Hold for three to five seconds and bring your hands back to your chest to complete the rep. Switch sides and repeat.
Balance Ball Pikes
How to Do 'Em: Start in a plank position with your feet up on an exercise ball. Keeping your knees straight, bring the ball in toward your hips—your butt should be pointed up to the sky. Beginners can start by bending their knees and simply bringing the ball in toward their chest, but once you’ve mastered that, move on to the full, straight-knee pikes.
Now is your chance to own a piece of history. With any Dogma Purchase receive a $300 in store credit back! Also get a 15% discount on any parts or accessories you may need to go along with your new frame. In May 2014 the Pinarello Dogma F8 was revealed as part of Pinarellos 2015 bike launch, with the name deriving from this particular Dogma model being the 8th generation. The bike was developed in conjunction with Team Sky sponsor and car manufacturer Jaguar and takes design cues (such as the front fork shape) from the Bolide time trial bike. Research advancements have led to claimed aerodynamic gains, with the F8 being 26.1% more aerodynamic than the Dogma 65.1, 6.4% more aerodynamic when including the bike rider and the frameset alone being 40% more aerodynamically efficient than the predecessor.
If you have the means, want to go fast and lust for Italian merchandise, yet don’t mind a little road feedback the Pinarello Dogma F8 could be your next ride. You like attention. Even after all these years, nothing else turns heads in the peloton like a new Pinarello.
Pinarello relied on the aerodynamic experience and high-dollar computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) software of fellow Sky-sponsor Jaguar automobiles to develop, test, and iterate more than 300 designs in a virtual space before making physical models to test in the wind tunnel. At the launch in Italy, Jaguar’s principal CFD aerodynamics engineer, John Pitman, stressed that the F8’s aerodynamics were designed with the rider taken into consideration and optimized for real-world conditions.

Recovery Food You Should Eat After a Hard Ride
The author of ‘Fuel Your Ride’ dishes on optimal post-ride nutrition for when you've really put the pedals down
You just did a long, hard ride. You walk in the door, park your bike, and, in a mild daze, shuffle into the kitchen. But in your fatigue, making a smart nutritional choice feels as complicated as cooking in the dark.
It doesn’t have to be so hard. In my new book, Fuel Your Ride, I write about conversations with some of the top nutrition experts in exercise science, like Nanci Guest, the lead dietician for the PanAm Games; Stacy Sims, the creator of Osmo Nutrition; and a slew of professional cyclists who’ve been honing their diet plans for years. Here are a few of their top tips for optimal post-ride eating.
Not All Rides Require the Same Recovery Food
Let’s be honest: That hour-long recovery spin doesn’t really merit a post-ride meal. Sure, have a snack if you’re starving, or eat lunch if it’s lunchtime, but be realistic about how much you actually need to eat. Check out our handy online calorie-burn calculator to get a rough idea of how much you energy you used while riding (or look at your power meter for a more accurate reading).
Don't Return on an Empty Stomach
If you’re eating properly during your ride, you shouldn’t walk in the door feeling ravenous. Make sure you’re fueling and hydrating as you pedal—you probably won’t be able to eat as much as you’re burning, but you should be able to stave off an end-of-ride bonk. The same goes for drinking: We often mistake thirst for hunger, and dehydration is hard to recover from quickly—chugging right after your ride isn’t the same as drinking regularly while you’re spinning. If you end most rides feeling moody (or ‘hangry’) and completely drained, you might need to eat more while exercising.
Start with Protein
Your window for recovery is actually wider than you might think, says Guest—unless you have another workout later in the day. In that case, starting the recovery-meal process as soon as you walk in the door is the key to being ready for your next adventure. But whether you’re recovering for tonight’s workout or tomorrow’s ride, aim for around 20 grams of protein to help your muscles recover. That doesn’t necessarily mean reaching for the protein powder (though that certainly is an option). Think whole-food protein sources like chicken, eggs, or lentils if you have time for a sit-down meal.
Add In Carbs
You need to restrock those depleted glycogen stores, so adding some healthy carbohydrate sources like whole grains, rice, fruit, and plenty of veggies to your recovery meal is a great idea. But don’t take this as an excuse to binge on cupcakes and pastries. (Though if you want to make the occasional café stop for really good pie, pro road cyclist Janel Holcombe approves!)
Don’t Forget to Rehydrate...
For a few hours after your ride, make sure you’re sipping water, especially if you felt like you didn’t drink enough during your ride. Again, you don’t need to chug a gallon right when you finish riding, but a steady stream of water will rehydrate your system and keep it from drying up, or backing up.
... But Beer Doesn’t Count
The idea of post-ride beer sounds super tempting, especially after a long, hot ride, and good news: A recovery beer won't ruin your hydration. But make no mistake, booze also won't hydrate you. So limit your booze consumption post-ride, and make sure to chase anything along the hops spectrum with a swig of water.
Dialing in your fit is one of the most important steps in making your bike yours. While the science and specifics of bike fitting can be pretty intense, adjusting saddle height is one of the very first things everyone will do before they hit the road, so let’s make sure you’re prepared!
This has previously been covered as part of the assembly instructions and a few bigger projects on here, but since it’s a fairly common call when people first get their bikes – let’s keep it simple and solo this time!
Loosen Seatpost Collar
First up, grab your trusty allen key (99% of seatpost collars will take a 4mm, 5mm, or 6mm allen wrench – so if you’ve got a 4-5-6 like this, you’re ready for anything)!
Give the bolt on the collar a few counter-clockwise turns to loosen it up. You only need to go until you can slide the seatpost up and down in the frame, and a little “tightness” is good because it’ll help you hold the saddle in place while you get everything straightened and tightened back up.
Now, just adjust the saddle to your ideal height!
A good rule of thumb is that you want your legs almost all the way extended at the furthest part of the pedal stroke. So, set it and then hop on to make sure your leg’s not too bent or over-extended, just a little break in the knee is perfect. Just make sure you don’t raise the seatpost beyond the minimum insertion line printed on there.
Tighten Seatpost Collar
And once you’ve got it where you want it, all you have to do is tighten everything back up!
