With cycling as my main exercise, my legs and cardio are pretty good for my age but upper body and core needs more attention. I also do 5 minutes of planks most days (not holding one position but varying across several positions).

Anyway thanks again (and apologies for distracting the thread).
Same here. You guys mean dumbells, right?

I wouldn’t go near a chiro but an osteopath once performed a miracle on my neck.

Best year yet last year (I’m just a few years into qualifying for this group) with 11500km ridden, 116800m of climbing and 423 hours in the saddle. Need to plan a trip to some real mountains. Maybe Italy, my club is trying to put something together for later this year.

Yes, I use dumbells and barbells as meaning the same thing.

I actually got uncomfortable with the chiro and stopped seeing him. He was a good guy but, right or wrong, I just got nervous with those neck adjustments they do and moved on to a PT.

I've probably been using the wrong term. This is what I use at home (well, lighter as I'm not very strong!):

Yeah, that's a dumbbell but it's not a barbell. That's one-handed (the pair of them are obviously two-handed so maybe my description was ambiguous )
