The riding and racing season is in full swing and that means that time and motivation to train can be a little short. Here is a 5 exercise circuit I’ve been using for the riders that train in my facility that takes 20 minutes to complete and works on cardio, core strength, upper body strength and lower body strength. Use this to help you get a workout so you can keep riding strong through the dog days of summer.
