Hello Levis,

On the saddle most riders work their lower back a lot , and also the legs such as hamstrings.
Most riders think riding is a workout which is not it’s more like a sport so to get better on the saddle and to become a better and stronger rider you have to strengthen the muscles that’s doing all the wearing and tearing such as your lower back , core , shoulders and legs , Glute , hamstrings , and work on your hip flexibility as well.
