Yoga for cyclists: Hips, hip flexors and glutes
The repetitive nature of pushing power through the pedals in an unusual bent over position towards the handlebars isn’t natural for the body. This position can commonly cause tightness all around the hip area.
Session 3 will focus on the hips, hip flexors and glutes. As riders we are all too familiar with tight hips and hip associated pain such as ‘sciatica’. We’ll focus on increasing mobility and flexibility to release pain and discomfort whilst cycling.
This should also help reduce the chance of future injuries.
