Hi,

I have a dodgy back - spondy - and get episodes once or twice a year. Recently my osteo pointed to an imbalance between my hip flexors / quads and hamstrings and glutes, and gave me a load of gluteal activation exercises to do - as well as telling me to get a standup desk. Obviously, loads of power to be had from unlocking my glutes - any on bike exercises or bike fit tools to help me with this?

Cheers,

Simon

Best done off the bike. You're not unlocking your glutes; you're teaching them to activate when needed. Start with planks and reverse planks, add some kettle bell work if you want to do this at home at minimal cost or intrusion, or ideally start doing deadlifts.

There have been a host of threads about this lately, here and on other forums.

Thanks! I've been directed to doing bridges and one-legged bridges too, for anyone else's reference.
