Week 4: Conditioning

You are now past the initiation phase and well on your way towards achieving your goal of completing the NYC Century Bike Tour!  As you continue your training, treat that body well in between your training rides. You already know how to add some mobility drills to keep those muscles in good balance--now let’s talk about the supplemental training you can do.

Add these conditioning exercises in place of a training day or on an off day when you just don’t feel like going on that ride. I suggest performing a cross training routine one to two days per week.

If you feel you just don’t have time to do these exercises along with all your training, perform these three exercises before a shorter ride twice a week.
