Post-Bike Stretch Routine with Brett
When it comes to a stretching program after a bike ride, I like to keep my routine straightforward by stretching in the opposite direction of how I was sitting on the bike. For example, while riding the hips and knees are predominantly in a bent position. The opposite direction would be to stretch the hip in neutral or slight extension to lengthen the hip flexors. The thoracic spine is in a relatively flexed position while cycling. Using a foam roller to mobilize the thoracic spine into extension is a great way to address mid and upper back stiffness. Here are some examples!
