Cycling-specific massage today requires intimate knowledge of the way riders of all levels use their muscles.
The soft tissues around the lower back, hip, and leg can contribute to lower limb dysfunction in athletes.
Improving muscle tissue tone, joint range of motion, and pain, in combination with appropriate strengthening, neuromuscular control, and general training principles can improve athletic function and performance.
According to bicycling.com, cycling massage helps to loosen tight spots, flush toxic chemicals, and keep your fibers smooth and limber so you can ride pain free.
If you’re not sure which muscles your massage therapist should focus on, try to think about the types of exercises you do to get stronger off the bike.
The most important muscles are situated in our legs and core: Make sure to hit the glutes, hamstrings, quads, calves, back muscles, and neck muscles, with any extra time spent on arms, hands, and wrists tight from lots of time spent in the drops.
