Before undertaking serious cycling training, it makes sense to spend time strengthening one's knees, using exercises like leg presses, squats, bench step-ups, bicycle leg swings, knee extensions, hamstring curls, stair climbing, and very small amounts of cycling against high resistance.

Vintage fitness. I remember we had one of those old-school sit-up things when I was a kid, and I just thought it was the most frustrating, least relaxing hammock ever. On another note: Thank you to whoever invented yoga pants, so we're no longer expected to wear freaking tights and leotards to work out.
