Your glutes are the largest muscle in your body yet the most underused. I've learned this over years of cycling and running. We become more prone to injury when we force our limbs to do all of the work when we exercise. When we bike, the focus is on pushing the pedals down and pulling them up with our...

So many athletes ask me how to get stronger and faster on the bike.  I always tell them that they have to change the way they do things. Every ride must have a purpose.
