After riding, do these 5 stretches to make your legs thinner and stronger

If you don’t stretch at the end of riding, the muscle circumference will increase over time, resulting in thicker and thicker legs; When the muscles are in a state of tension for a long time, the elasticity will also become poor, resulting in feeling weak at the foot when cycling.

Today, I’d like to share a group of stretching movements that can be completed in 5 minutes.

It covers all the muscle groups used by the lower limbs when pedaling: gluteus maximus, Thigh muscle group (quadriceps femoris, posterior leg muscle), calf muscle group (front group, rear group and lateral group).

01 this action stretches the rear muscles of the lower leg and the rear muscles of the thigh, which are the main source of strength when cycling and accelerating.

Details: stand on the ground with one foot, the other leg straightens on the steps or stool, the leg straightens, the toes retract and point to the knee.

Lean forward while keeping the back straight, feel the stretch of the hamstring.

For example If you feel that the muscle stretch on the back of your thighs is not obvious, you can change to a higher stool and chair and lift your legs higher.

Hold in tension for 5-10 seconds and release.

Repeat 5 times for each leg.

02 this stretching action is aimed at the quadriceps femoris in the front of the thigh and the muscles in the front of the lower leg.

Details: stand on one foot, lift the left foot back, hold the toe with your hand, slowly pull the lower leg to the inside, let the heel touch the hip, and straighten the toe at the same time.

Keep the whole movement for 30 seconds.

If it is difficult to maintain balance, the other hand can lean against the wall.

03 this action mainly stretches the gluteus maximus, and the muscle group that starts to exert force depends on it.

Details: low bow lunge, step forward with one foot, extend the distance forward as far as possible, the knee of the other leg should contact the ground, and both hands can be placed on both sides of the sole of the foot to maintain balance.

Try to press your hips down.

The lower the position, the more you can stretch the muscles of your hips.

Keep breathing steadily for 30 seconds during the movement, and then change the other leg.

04 this action is to stretch the hind leg muscles and gluteus maximus.

Details: fork your hands at the back waist, extend your right foot forward until your knees remain 90 degrees, and your thighs are parallel to the ground.

Lift the heel with the left foot and keep the pressure on the toe.

Keep the whole action for 30 seconds.

When extending the right leg forward, make sure that the knee is always behind the toes.

Don’t bend too much, otherwise it will compress the knee ligament and cause damage.

05 this action is also mainly stretching gluteus maximus and posterior thigh muscles.

Details: lie on the ground, lift your right leg, cross your right ankle and lean against the cover of your left knee.

Then put your left hands together, hold the inside of your left leg knee and pull back.

After letting the hip muscles feel the stretch, keep moving for 30 seconds and change the other leg.

Stretching after riding not only relaxes the muscles, but also speeds up the blood circulation of the body and improves the fat burning effect.

Lie down and lose weight.

So why don’t you stretch?:) The most fun thing in Hainan is not riding or self driving, but the combination of the two will produce a magical chemical reaction.

Use cars to carry bicycles to farther and more ideal riding places, quickly break away from urban riding obstacles, and enjoy the speed and passion brought by riding! Pure riding makes people tired.

If you spend too much time on foot, you will miss a lot of scenery.

New travel methods, 30-50km exclusive classic riding routes every day, more time to play, and dig deep into the original ecological scenery of Hainan.

It’s worth taking a group of partners to release the troubles in the grid of big cities.
