During this period of confinement the roller training for cyclists and triathletes It is being used the most, but also athletes from other specialties have resorted to this option due to the lack of other possibilities.
You can check some of our recommendations in this section of home workouts
For all of you we recommend exercises and guidelines to consider to prepare and compensate the posture and muscles used.
Before moving on to the recommendations, we present in a very didactic scheme the main involvement of each muscle in the different phases or moments of pedaling
In addition to the main muscles involved in pedaling, you should bear in mind that the body position adopted on the bike places great demands on core and back muscles.
Having said which, we propose to carry out a series of stretches after roller training or in a planned way throughout the week, so that reduce muscle tension caused by the work of the main and secondary muscles during training, to avoid overloads and possible injuries.
Stretches for triathletes and cyclists
We leave you some ideas so that you can carry out an adequate training:
