Keep your hips, shoulders and ankles mobile with this simple 5 minute routine.

Getting tight and losing some mobility is one of those things that doesn’t seem like a big deal at first but it catches up with you eventually. While at first you may just feel a little stiff, if left alone that stiffness can start to rob you of power and endurance while also setting you up for an overuse injury.

For us as mountain bikers keeping the hips, shoulders and ankles mobile becomes even harder because we spend so much time in the same basic position on the bike. Standing up to pedal helps with this some since you’re in less of a static position compared to seated pedaling but even then you need to do something to avoid letting stiffness turn into something worse.

In this video I show you a simple 5 minute routine that you can do before and/ or after a ride to keep your joints mobile so they can perform and feel their best.

    Figure 8 drills and slalom with pedal movement only to switch foot for a proper corner/lean. The tighther the radius, the faster the turn, the harder it gets. The key is pedal movement only to switch foot. Easier said than done TBH…
