While it would seem strange that riding a bicycle would help a gynmast, riding a bicycle equipped with PowerCranks can definitely do so. Why? Because gymnasts are typically unbalanced (fore-aft especially) and such can make the gymnast much more susceptible to injury. "All my girls are imbalanced" says the Arkansas gymnastics coach "and we got the PowerCranks equipped exercise bike for pre-season use to help keep them healthy". PowerCranks helps develop both the core strength, core endurance, and coordination that can lead to better gymnastics performance and less risk of serious injury.
