Are you a cyclist who’s been consistent with your rides and strength training but no matter how much you stretch, foam roll or jam a lacrosse ball in there, you’re still getting that annoying ache and pain in your hip that you just can’t seem to shake?
I think it’s safe to say that it’s time for a different approach. Check out today’s coaching because I’m going to show you my #1 technique to attack the most overlooked aspect of the hip that will relieve that pain for good.
WHY CYCLING CAN IRRITATE YOUR HIPS
Cycling puts us in a position where our lower body is stuck in one plane of motion going up and down, up and down, for an extended period of time.
What’s really important for the function of our hips is rotation, specifically internal rotation, which it’s definitely not getting while riding.
So when you get off of the bike you better make sure you restore the rotational components of the hip, otherwise pain sets in.
Today’s exercise will show you exactly how to do that.
All you need is a yoga block or something similar like a pillow to rest your head on.
