Top core stability exercises for cycling

Postby UpDownUp » Sun Jan 27, 2013 1:31 pm

Last year I suffered a disc bulge. I am aware that I do not have great core stability on the bike e.g. hips moving up and down a bit rather than remaining stable and level (seat height etc is ok). I'm wondering if anyone could suggest some cycling relevant core stability type exercises?

That guy is definitely a freak. Some of the exercises were fairly impressive and I'm sure my body would not co-operate if I tried to do the sdame. The expressions of some of the other ppl watching in the background was pretty funny.

L-overs sets of six
Alternating one leg down, one leg raised to horizontal sit on gym ball, 30 seconds per side until failure
Alternating single leg reverse crunch (lie on foam roll under spine to increase challenge) sets of 10=20
