Flexibility Training

Flexibility is the amount or range of motion that a body joint can go through. It is controlled by the muscles, tendons and ligaments. I feel that you only need as much flexibility as your sport requires, but it also has to be specific to the sport. For this reason I have included some stretches that focus on muscles used for riding: rotators of the hip, torso, low back extenders and flexors, and shoulder stabilizers. These are all great stretches and done on a regular basis should help with your overall performance.


The Details

Frequency: Everyday
Intensity: You should stretch to the point of tightness, but not pain. When you feel the tension of the stretch, hold the position for 10-30 seconds
Duration: Routine should take 10-15 minutes
