Strength training is beneficial for all cyclists. In this video EIS strength and conditioning coaches Scott Pearson and Joe Hewitt demonstrate advanced movements. They show you how to correctly and safely perform barbell back squats, trap bar deadlifts and splits squats.
You should only include these exercises in your routine if you’re already experienced at training with weights or have been regularly performing the standard strength exercises and are confident that you are ready to move on. Consider getting additional technical instruction from a qualified fitness professional to ensure your form is correct.
