I have been having problems with my back, neck, and shoulders. I know I have been on a kick to get a more upright set up bike for my typical 7 mile commute, and I will continue the search, but I began to wonder about whether or not I need to look into strength training for road cycling?
I have a late 90's Hybrid GT bike that rides great, but I tend to think the forward bend is causing me issues.
I have read that strengthening the core (and that is not just the stomach most of us relate to) including the muscles around our spine?
Does anyone have an exercise regimen they would like to share to strengthen key areas?
Stuff you can do with resistance bands, free weights, stretching, core work exercises, etc that may not require a gym membership?
