We asked elite triathlete Lucy Charles for her essential cycling training tips. In this she focusses on the best exercises you can do in the gym to strengthen your body and improve your performances in the bike.

– If you’re training for a triathlon, spend dedicated time just on bike fitness
– Strength training helps you put power through the pedals
– Good exercises include: leg extensions, hamstring curls, squats and single leg exercises
– Use turbo trainers – devices that allow you to turn your road bike into a stationary bike – to improve your fitness, and add Zwift to the mix to make training more exciting
