Some people choose to ignore these problems and think that in any case, exercise is better than no exercise, so they often don’t face up to this concept – sports injury.
Exercise can bring you health or ruin your health.
Today, I’ll show you some common discomfort and some simple solutions.
It may not cover all aspects, but it aims to make cyclists pay attention to all kinds of discomfort during exercise, rather than choose patience or neglect, so as to make riding more comfortable and healthy.
Knee injury is one of the most common injuries for cyclists – up to 33% of cyclists have suffered knee pain.
The strength of riding comes from the large muscles of our hips and thighs.
In order to transmit this power to our lower legs and feet, it needs to pass through the knee joint, so the knee plays a vital role in riding.
There are two main reasons for knee pain.
On the one hand, the intensity of a single ride is too high.
The knee needs to be bent and extended repeatedly due to treading, resulting in constant friction of the knee joint, Patellar cartilage (directly in front of the knee) will be easily inflamed.
Once injured, the preliminary treatment can be carried out according to pricemm principle (refer to Baidu).
The main principle of this kind of injury is to step by step and not to exert too much force at one time.
On the other hand, it is caused by the riding posture.
Due to the simultaneous action of multiple muscles and forces in the knee joint, once the force is unbalanced, it is easy to cause knee discomfort.
Generally, there are discomfort in the front, back, inside and outside directions.
For most cases, refer to the following simplified version It is recommended to seek help from a professional car shop for posture adjustment.
Positive feeling: dull pain around the knee: patellofemoral pain syndrome, usually caused by too low cushion.
Back feeling: pain or stiffness at the top of the hamstring behind the knee or near the hip: the hamstring is over stretched, which is usually caused by too high cushion.
External sensation: severe pain on the outside of the knee: iliac tibial bundle (IT) syndrome solution: stretch or use the foam shaft to loosen the IT belt.
Internal feeling: pain on the inside of the knee: foot dislocation solution: correctly position the locking plate so that your hips, knees and feet are in a beautiful vertical line.
Oh, yes, and those who ride bicycles in shorts in winter.
Xiaobian feels cold legs across the screen.
Even if they don’t feel very cold when exercising, they may still directly hurt their knees.
Therefore, remember to wear autumn pants when cycling! Tips: eating broccoli can prevent arthritis to a certain extent.
Newcomers always have butt pain ▲ goddess Mi laugh chariot: shake your butt (mistake) the only thing you can’t avoid for the first time is the ass pain.
Even the old bird can’t feel the pain sometimes after a long ride.
How can you avoid the ass pain to the greatest extent? 1.
The way to feel the pain? If you feel the pain of squeezing your hips for a long time and start to feel the stiffness of your lower back, you should drive I began to pay attention to the impact of riding posture and cushion on you, which can not be solved by practicing “iron skill”.
Shake your ass, even if it’s not climbing, you should often change your riding posture, stand up and shake the car, which can help the blood circulation of your ass.
Check the height of the seat cushion to ensure that the ass sits firmly on the seat cushion when riding, so as to avoid that the seat cushion is too high and needs to be twisted from east to west to ensure trampling, which will directly lead to greater friction.
An important function of wearing riding clothes and pants is to have a sponge cushion that can protect the ass.
in addition, you can apply some sports anti friction cream or vaseline to further protect the ass.
Keep personal hygiene.
After riding, change your clothes in time to avoid wearing them for a long time.
Choose a good cushion, which is the most important.

Being ridiculed as the hardest hit area – cramp.
As a senior rookie, squatting on the roadside and fancy stretching is a necessary skill.
The sidelines also have to bear the “warm greetings” from passing cyclists.
Compared with other “cold and warm” and “difficult to tell”, cramps are a pain that can’t be hidden, so they are the hardest hit areas to be ridiculed.
▲ Aru was joked by fans that mouth cramps can cause muscle stiffness and unbearable pain.
For riders, cramps usually occur in legs, hands, back and neck.
In the fierce competition, once there is a cramp, it is difficult for you to recover in a short time, and the exercise state will be greatly reduced.
Sometimes the pain will even lead to inability to continue riding.
Generally, the main causes of cramps are fatigue and overload.
When the exercise intensity has exceeded the endurance limit of your muscle or the muscle reaches the lactic acid area, it will lead to cramps.
Another reason is lack of water and electrolytes, which affect the transmission of muscle and nerve signals, resulting in continuous muscle spasm during or after exercise.
The prevention method is to fully warm up and stretch before vigorous exercise, and then supplement water and electrolytes in time, including some electrolytes, sports drinks and salt pills..
