Before you put too many miles on those pedals, there are a few key stretching and strengthening exercises that will help you to prevent injury and improve performance on your bike!
Studies have shown that adherence to a consistent stretching program can prevent injury during sports. The entire body is being worked while cycling, but there are specific muscle groups that require more flexibility for an efficient and effective pedal stroke.
Cycling is an amazing way to play outside, but remember to always be safe and wear your helmet! If you have pain or discomfort while pedaling, be sure to consult with a TAI CycleFit trained PT to be certain your pedaling experience is as comfortable and productive as you want it to be!
