This has been discussed previously here but here goes:

 

Abs - crunches / sit - ups on a roman chair with a weight & leg raises with a weight (this hurts). Twists with a broom stick or pole for obliques..

 

Back: Deadlifts....

 

All this & other gym work 3 times a week..hope it helpsApprove

And to summarize about 50 pages of previous threads there is debate about whether core training actually improves your cycling or just general fitness and body tone.

I used to do a bit of yoga, but my job got in the way, so now it's just a few (60) sit-ups if I remember.

 

Or else I just go to the gym...  They have some cool core workouts there...
