For years, professional cyclist Tom Danielson battled back pain that hurt his race performance and made riding his bike painful. Personal trainer Allison Westfahl cured Danielson's back problems with a core training programme that has become Danielson's secret weapon for climbing and time trialing. Rather than focusing on leg strength alone, Danielson's total-body strength routine boosts his performance, helps him recover from injuries, and gives him an edge in the peloton. "Tom Danielson's Core Advantage" shares three core strength plans so any cyclist can enjoy faster, longer rides. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced training plans will help bike racers, century riders, and weekend warriors to stabilise the upper body, improving cycling efficiency and reducing the fatigue that can cause back and neck pain. Cyclists will use their own body weight during exercises for the lower back, hips, abs, chest, and shoulders to build strength in these critical areas. Danielson models each exercise in clear photographs. Diagrams of key muscle and bone structures explain the goals of each workout. Riding a bike takes more than leg strength.
