Transcript of Kinesiology of Cycling

Kinesiology of Cycling Balance & Cooperation
in the Body 5 Basic Muscle Groups Used in Cycling The Hip Musculature The Prime Movers muscle groups work reciprocally

Contraction of the hamstrings bends the knee, and contraction of the quadriceps straightens the leg.

similar to the movement of sitting and standing The Hip Musculature
The Quadriceps
The Hamstrings
The Gluteals
The Calf Muscles The Hip Musculature Stabilizer Muscles Support Muscles Muscles Used During Cycling Lower Abdominals Biceps Prime movers are the muscles that actively create movement stabilizers provide balance and support to your body. back & chest muscles also aid in stabilization Total Body Connectivity There are ways to facilitate kinesiological movements! Prime movers are typically the larger muscles in your body. They connect to your bones (by tendons) and create movement around a joint. The prime movers while riding a bike are your hamstrings and quads. Stabilizers are smaller muscles & help to keep bones, joints, and muscles correctly aligned both during movement and while you are stationary.

They also provide postural support. The primary stabilizers in cycling are the biceps and lower abs, but other muscles help in the stabilization process. They're all necessary! Kinesiology? by Lala Kinesiology is the study of human and animal movement, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. Applications of kinesiology:
physical education teacher
the rehabilitation professions, such as physical and occupational therapy
applications in the sport and exercise industries. (it's good to work out stabilizer muscles, too!) Let Sitz-bones hang

Release any unnecessary tension

Head-Tail Connectivity

Core-Distal Connectivity Upper-Lower Connectivity

Body-Half Connectivity

Breathing Total Body Connectivity As Irmgard Bartenieff has said, “There is an interrelationship of all body parts in any movement. The whole body participates in any movement: different parts either serving as movers or supporters of movement.”

“You must remember that the total body is changing; see the total constellation change when you change any one thing. One muscle out of interplay can affect everything else; the body is highly orchestrated.” http://www.google.com/imgres?q=bike+art&um=1&hl=en&client=safari&sa=N&tbo=d&rls=en&authuser=0&biw=1214&bih=593&tbm=isch&tbnid=mDXk7gWEhVL9DM:&imgrefurl=http://www.flickr.com/photos/httpwwwsitup-cyclecomphotos/7171134843/&docid=D1sbmZo6Y8rsMM&imgurl=http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8152/7171134843_047a2edae2_z.jpg&w=400&h=593&ei=E8W3UICzIa3-iQK0yIG4Cg&zoom=1&iact=hc&dur=536&sig=105767839204892351336&page=3&tbnh=135&tbnw=91&start=49&ndsp=28&ved=1t:429,r:52,s:0,i:300&tx=103&ty=110&vpx=544&vpy=192&hovh=135&hovw=91
