## How long does it take to get faster at cycling?

The way to think about it is that you have a certain power limit. It takes maybe 3 to 6 months of training 4+ days a week to get close to the limit (you’ll see lots of gains early on, and less and less as you proceed.)

## Why am I not getting faster at cycling?

Core training should be like pumping your tires, something you do several times a week to keep from getting flat! Because when your core gets weak, you lose power transfer from your upper body to your lower body. That makes you less stable in the saddle, and you can’t push maximum power into your pedals to go fast.
