- Recommend daily stretches for cycle commuters
Any cycle commuters do daily stretches on arrival (or perhaps before leaving) work? What stretches are important enough for you to always make time for?
I sometimes do stretches on getting back home at the end of the day, but usually only if it was an extended commute where I worked up a good sweat. Do you bother with stretches after a easier commute?
Currently my commutes are between 4 and 7 miles.Posted 1 year agosteezysixMember
Get to work 10 mins earlier? Seriously though, if you watch the video, there’s about 5 mins of breathing exercise at the beginning that you could skip (although it is quite good) and a short relaxation bit at the end. Do the routine a couple of times and learn the bits that benefit you most, then do the full lot when you get home.Posted 1 year agodavidtaylforthMember
It’s not really worth it after a four mile ride!
Sitting at a desk all day is what’ll **** you up.
If you’ve only got five mins then you could just do different ones each day
hip flexors/quads & hamstrings (medial and lateral)
Adductors and abductors
TFL and calves
QL and abs
I probably wouldn’t bother unless you’re in pain already.Posted 1 year ago
