Phil Burt’s book strength training for cyclists is also a good thing to look into as well. Lots of baseline mobility and strength tests there to suggest what you need to work on off the bike. Tho lately its led me to be in the gym way more than on the bike these days.
Big Kelly Starrett fan. Me too on the books, toys, etc. I think I posted somewhere on this forum about the multiple conversations I had with him and the CFit World Games in Madison in August. Gracious with his time, and quite the character.
I know from his podcasts that he’s a big Specialized fan. I’ve been thinking about subscribing to his Virtual Mobility Coach offering; I’ll try this first, and the his other version…
Did assessment this afternoon and did 2 exercises tonight during my normal evening rolling.
Exactly what is been looking for. I’d pay for this, not as much as his full program but would pay something.
Start the timer when you start the video, you can’t make complete until you hit the minimum time. So if you spend 2 min doing it along with him you’ve got to do 2 more mins of exercise (not always easy) or wait it out.
Frankly, a mobility app that automatically suggested exercises to do daily to improve myself on and off the bike would take away the severe cognitive load that I experience when trying to assess and correct mobility issues.
I finally started just rolling every night late last year. Throw on a 30 minute show and just go until it is done, Cheers has enough episodes it should last me all year. I had looked up a few extra exercises I wanted to do but could never remember to get them in. This should be much easier to remember since I now have a few corrections to work on from the assessment. Plus the app changing every night should help mentally vs let me just do some planks every night.
I’ve tried out GOWOD. Very very impressed. Super easy to do a routine and there are lots of options to do a routine at varying lengths between 8 to 22 minutes. Also has options to use mobility tools such as balls and theraguns if you have it.
