BOW LEGS YOGA FOR CYCLISTS – 4 Yoga Exercises For STRAIGHTER Legs


Are you a cyclist and do you have bow legs? But wouldn’t you want to learn how to get straighter legs? Then keep watching
because in this video we’re going to explore four yoga exercises that can
help you get straighter legs! My name is Chi and you’re welcome to The Body
Conditioner. Here we work in, not out. If you’re new to The Body Conditioner Hi!
You’re absolutely welcome. Please say hi in the comment section because I really
want to get to know you. What we’re all about here at The Body Conditioner is
working in. The work-ins, the exercises that you get from me are work-ins that I
have tested. Tested with my private clients that I work with every single
day. So I see one on one what works and what does not. So the work-ins you get from me are work-ins that work. There is no trial and
error because I have tried it in reality. So all you get from me is the best out
of many, many years of private practice. So here are the four yoga exercises that
you want to focus on in order to minimize your bow legs quickly but also
feel better about your legs. So number one we want to stretch your quads and
your hip flexors in general. Because you spend so much time on the bike and you
use the hip flexors a lot. So we want to make sure that we stretch them. One of
the stretches is moving your shin bones towards the wall, coming up and then
really getting a good long stretch here in your quads and your hip flexors. The
second stretch you want to do is for your outer hips, so you really want to
make sure that you get a bit more length here into your hip abductors. So you can either roll onto your back and then do a figure 4 and then already stretch
it this way. Or lift the foot off the ground and then interlock the fingers
behind the thigh. Rest your head on the ground and here get some good length
here. You can also do the same by pressing your feet against the wall. I have a fantastic video I can show you on that. A stretch combination that can
also help you release some tension from the lower back. You will find it
here in the cards. And the third one we want to do is, we want to strengthen the
inner thigh muscles. We want to make sure that your hip adductors remain strong
and stay strong. So remember to squeeze a block or a book between the thighs here
so that you have more strength here in your inner thigh muscles. I will also link
here to one of the videos, a yoga bow leg pose that you can practice everyday that
can help strengthen your hip adductors. And for the fourth exercise we
want to make sure that your hamstrings, the backs of the thighs are healthy, that
means not only strong but also flexible. So you can roll onto your back, bend your
knees or keep them straight depending on what feels better for your lower back. Then interlock the fingers here behind the thigh and pull the knee as close to
your chest as you can. And then push the heel up and get some good length here in
the backs of the thighs. Keeping your right foot on the ground, big toe on the
ground and with every exhalation you keep releasing the breath through the leg and allowing a bit more space here in the backs of the thighs. And you stay
here for 10 or 15 breaths. Do the same thing on the other side. And doing those
four exercises regularly to complement your cycling is definitely a good thing
that will help you minimize your bow legs but also feel better about your
legs. Thanks so much for watching. Looking forward to seeing you in the next video
