Ha! The important thing to note is how nothing is straining -- relaxed arms, legs not tight. That's all from breathing. I've found that proper breathing during lifting really helps while cycling. That and a big exhale before an effort, because when you blow out, you have to suck back in.
Compare that with the guy behind me, who IS gritting his teeth, and how if you follow the photo sequence, the gap keeps growing. It's a common misconception that gritting is good. It's true that breathing doesn't matter as regards an effort, because it is purely anaerobic. But the relaxation part is important.
