Body Conditioning for Cycling

benefits of cycling

 As each day passes by, summer slowly begins to arrive. Through the cold winter months, you may have found yourself cuddled up on the couch with popcorn and a movie playing on the television. With summer and exercising in mind, you check the weather app for the following week; sunny and beautiful. In this moment, you think to yourself, “I need to get back to my passion of cycling.” You begin to gaze back to the television, but then snap back into reality and remember the benefits of cycling: a feeling of fit and healthy. It is also fun, especially when you bring friends along. A flashback repeats in your head of your doctor reminding you that cycling is an easy, muscle workout that you can make as intense as you want. It even helps prevent obesity, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and mental illness. Time to get back on the bike!


Body conditioning for cycling this summer is simple. Begin with a plan and prepare to listen to your body. If you are too exhausted to cycle that day you should take it easy and be honest with yourself and your limitations. Train your mind with positive thinking and you will notice more accomplishment when you tell yourself that you can do it. Along the ride, create healthy meals and snacks for yourself ahead of time. This will help you feel refreshed as you enjoy the ride.
