It’s one of the ironies of the busy cyclist: We spend as much time as it takes prepping our bike before a ride – and often none preparing our body. We simply can’t find the time for a pre-ride warm-up routine. But Coach Dan Kehlenbach, MS, CSCS, and a USA Cycling Level 2 Coach, says it doesn’t have to be that way. Devoting just 5 minutes to a pre-ride warm-up can enhance your riding by activating and preparing the key muscle groups you use in cycling. It requires no special equipment and can be done anywhere. Moreover, it can help you maintain overall joint quality and contribute to optimal neuromuscular function. This article shows you how and includes 5 sample warm-up programs to get you started — all fully illustrated with photos — as well as additional movements and a brief tutorial on how to use a foam roller to further improve muscle tissue quality.
