- Make sure to keep your knees in. Not only will this help with your form but it will work the inside of your thighs too!
- When at the bottom of the stroke rotation, flick your toes back to add power. This will help tone your calves.
- Always make sure you squeeze your abs in as you pedal. An activated core is just as important as what your legs are doing.
- In order to really work-off overlaying fat, make sure your routine lasts at LEAST 30-45 minutes, and focus on each and every rotation.
- Vary your cycling routine with interval work. Do 30 seconds at a high intensity off of the saddle, followed by 30 seconds at a regular intensity. This will give your legs an extra push!
