I'm not a strenght and conditioning coach, nor a pro cyclist (and not even a competitive amateur).Miles253 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 24, 2019 5:53 pmIt's going to be a multitude of factors for me, poor core strenth and lack of a sensible regime, couple with a position that is too aero for me to sustain presumably.
If anyone has a tried and tested regime for both core and neck strengthening, preferably without the exercise ball as in the above video, I would be rather grateful?
I played drums for years, developing a hypermobile ankle leading to knee deterioration. That lead to my quads pulling my kneecap off my knee when cycling. That lead to my upper body overcompensating, resulting in shoulder and neck impingement.
I've tried many things over the years to restore joint health and muscle balance (chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists, pilates, accupuncture), and the best things I've found have been compound exercises, specifically kettlebell swings, deadlifts and chin ups. Nothing else has made as profound a difference to my posture, core strength and joint mobility.
