APPROX. TIME: 30 minutes
WORKS ON: everything
HELPS MY RIDING BY: improving overall fitness, so you can ride harder for longer!

Extreme Unicycling

In order to be able to ride for hours on end, then you’ll need to supplement these exercises with high intensity interval training. If you haven’t exercised much in a while, then jogging or cycling is a good place to start. Overall, it will help you ride harder for longer – and who doesn’t want that?!

1)     Work for 2 to 3 minutes non-stop at an intensity you would grade at about an 8 out of 10 level (10 being the highest). You can do this on a treadmill or exercise bike easily.

2)     Recover for 1 minute walking or light cycling

Repeat 8 times per session, 1 or 2 times a week.

TIP: As you become more conditioned, simply ramp up the intensity to challenge your capacity.
