VLOG: Functional Movement Exercises for Cyclists

By Sofia Marin | In Video | on October 31, 2019

Start the year off right

Off season is the perfect time of year to reset your mind and body and spend some time addressing the natural imbalances that have developed over the course of the season. 

We begin our early season training with an intentional focus on functional movement, mobility and neuromuscular control exercises. Functional stabilization movements recruit multiple muscle groups in conjunction with one another across multiple planes, developing stability, mobility, coordination and strength. 

Benefits:

This sets a foundation for future success by:

  • Generating fast and optimal muscle firing patterns
  • Boosting biomechanical efficiency
  • Improving dynamic joint stability
  • Enhancing neuromuscular control (the connection between nervous system and muscles)
  • Correcting instabilities and injury prevention

Coach Sofi Marin shares our favorite functional exercises with tips!

Quality vs. Quantity

These movements are all about quality rather than quantity. Technique, controlled movement, and range of motion are the priority.

  • Deep Core Heel Taps
  • Thoracic Spine Rotation
  • Lateral Squat Walking (with band)
  • Bosu Ball Single-Leg Standing
  • Single-Leg Deadlift
  • Single-Leg Step Ups

Get to it!

Creating a balanced body will directly impact power, speed, handling, comfort and endurance. Ask an Achieve coach for details on how to start a personalized functional movement strength program this fall.
