Quick Stretch For Cyclists
Bicycling motion gets most of its power from the front thigh muscles (quads), combined with the seated position (hip flexion). As a result, bicyclists often experience tight hip flexors. If not maintained, this leads to a forward rotation of the hips which can cause other problems in the body structure such as low back pain.
Here is an example of a good hip flexor stretch: lunge forward and rotate your hips backwards (thrust forward).
Remember to stretch before activity and also a longer (1 minute on each side) stretch after activity.
Receiving regular hip flexor and leg muscle treatments from your massage therapist is always beneficial to prevent injury.
