You’ll feel the difference and see the results when riding.

Core Fitness Equals Good Moto Control

Good ‘ole sit-ups-tried and true! Let your abs do the work in pulling you up, not your hands, neck or head. If you use your hands to pull your head forward can strain your neck and cause lower back discomfort -so fold them gently behind your head for support.
Do 10 to 15 reps, three sets.

Plank for Strong Core

Holding in this position is more difficult than you might imagine, but you can’t move your hips. Watch out that hips are too high causing the load to be transferred to the shoulders and won’t be felt in the abs as much. When the hips are too low it can put a strain on the lower back.
Hold for 30 to 60 seconds and repeat for 12 sets.

Hip Raises for Strong Core

Some people think this move is about moving the legs back and forth, but it’s not. Often they will swing the legs back and forth to raise the hips with momentum rather than using the abs to slowly lift the hips off of the floor or mat.  Not a good thing if you’re trying to tone your stomach.
Do 10 to 15 reps, three sets.

Complete the workouts above three to four times a week to make the most of your midsection and your motorcycle manoeuvrability ease.
