This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are doing the bicycle exercise for your abs. The bicycle exercise can be one of the best ways to target your abs and strengthen and tone your core muscles. However, there are some things to keep in mind to make sure you get the results you desire from this exercise.

The bicycle exercise is one of the most incorrectly performed exercises in many box gyms. While many gym-goers will perform this exercise fast with very little effect on their abs, there are some keys you need to stay on the lookout for in order to make sure this exercise is not only safe on your low back, but also gives you the results you want.

When doing this exercise to strengthen your abs, you need to be mindful of how far your legs are moving. If they start moving too far, you can put your low back at risk for injury and actually decrease the results you get for your abs.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss more considerations when doing bicycles for your abs.
