Here’s a question for you guys -
Good hamstring flexibility is required for DLs, squats, sprinting, sport and general musculoskeletal health. In short tight hamstrings are bad.
I want to start cycling (basically because it is exercise, it’ll get me to work and allow me to avoid sitting in traffic and also save me money on gas!)
However i’m concerned that it will tighten up my hamstrings - repetitive muscular action through a shortened range of motion eventually leads to a shortened muscle belly.
So what have your experiences been (especially the coaches, as you will have seen many more cases.)
Should i pedal my way around, or sit on my ass in traffic?!
