I didn’t know …

I wish I understood this 30 years ago 😃

I spent most of my working life sitting at a desk, hunched over a keyboard. I’m certain you have heard that “sitting is the new smoking”. It’s true. Sitting is just as bad for your health, maybe worse, than smoking.

I understood this, at least in part. I’d take every opportunity to get up, stretch a little, and walk outside whenever possible. Coupled with regular running, swimming, or cycling, I thought I was in good shape. And, compared to many, I was. But, my glutes were always underdeveloped, imbalanced, and unstable.

I could have been a lot better ☹️

I know differently today, 30 years to late. For the past several years, I have focused on strengthening and stretching the glute muscles, and notice a significant difference in mobility, stability, and power.

The glutes are the largest muscle group in the body, and key to a powerful, and efficient pedal stroke.

If you want to become a stronger, faster, and more efficient cyclist, focus on your glutes 😃
