BICYCLING Magazine article breakdown: Best Low-Impact Exercises You Can Do for Cross-Training

The missing piece, when it comes to strength training, for most athletes, is the understanding that strength training (and cross training for that matter) should be focused on strengthening the body in movements that are NOT done in their sport, and which will lead to better stability and strength through the sports movements.

-Very importantly, the imbalances that said sport causes in the joints
-And the adaptations that the body makes in order to “get strong & efficient” in that sport.
