Optimizing Pedaling Efficiency – Articulating Through Each Joint
Smooth coordination of power is the hallmark of efficient cycling form. In our sessions, we guide each participant through work both on the bike (on trainers) and exercises off the bike. We experientially examine how the muscles and joints work together through the full pedal stroke. We break down what is active in what parts of the pedal stroke, how to feel what you are currently doing, and what else you could be doing. We then work through exercises to build the strength, mobility, core stability and skillful coordination (neuromuscular control).
Deepen your understanding of the anatomy of core, hips, knees and ankles as they relate to cycling performance. (Bike Frame = Core; Bottom Bracket = Hips; Crank Arms = Knees; Pedal = Ankles)
Understand how you currently do and potentially could use your body through the full cycle of the pedal stroke.
Leave with an exercise set that directly relates to improved cycling performance.
Recognize common cycling injuries and discomforts while gaining strategies to overcome them.
Once your bicycle is adjusted to fit your body, we refine your body’s strength and mobility for optimal power to the pedals. The end result? You go FASTER! And you avoid pesky injuries in the process.
We can offer this service to individuals, small groups or full teams. Contact us to discuss how we can help you, your friends or your team healthier and stronger on the bike.
