Here are a couple of quick pilates exercises you can try out at home. 

Let us know how they went.

Part 5: Hip Flexors

One of the most common stretches given to cyclists is a simple hip flexor lunge stretch. Stretching the hip flexor muscles helps to improve hip mobility, increase flexibility and improve posture on the bike. Here I give you a couple of tricks to make the most of this stretch and make it that much more effective.

  1. Kneeling with one leg forward, knee bent at a 90-degree angle.
  2. Make sure your hips are in line with your back knee.
  3. Instead of leaning straight into the stretch, rather get a little taller with the body.
  4. Squeeze the buttocks of the back leg and flatten out your lower back, engaging your abdominals.
  5. Lift the arm opposite your front leg and lean slightly over to same side as that leg.
  6. Hold for 30 seconds each side.
