It is important to remember that the advanced exercises are exactly that and should only be attempted once you’re confident with the rest of the routine and have been working through it consistently for 4-6 weeks.

Advanced functional strength exercises are demonstrated by Martin Evans Lead Strength & Conditioning Coach at British Cycling and Senior Strength & Conditioning Coach, English Institute of Sport.
