BOOST YOUR SPEED, STRENGTH, AND ENDURANCE.
Welcome to Dynamic Cyclist - the ultimate resource for cyclists looking to improve their performance and ride pain free.
ARE YOU RIDING WITH PAIN?
As a cyclist, you know how important it is to maintain your bike and keep it in top condition. But what about your body? Maintaining your mobility and flexibility is just as crucial for achieving your best performance and avoiding injury.
Bottom line, you can spend $1000s on a bike and all the right gear, but if your muscles are imbalanced, you will never reach your full potential on the bike. In fact, you are at risk of injury, if not riding with pain already. Targeted dynamic movement, strengthening and stretching have been proven to eliminate knee and back pain, accelerate recovery, restore a healthy range of motion and increase power.
The problem with cycling is...
Cycling is a repetitive motion that can lead to muscle imbalances and tightness, especially in the hips, lower back, and shoulders.
Our muscles are the engine by which we move, impacting every aspect of our bodies whether we realize it or not. Unfortunately, muscles do not naturally maintain their healthy or ideal range of motion on their own. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Muscles will change their functional resting length to adapt to the length at which they are habitually used or positioned.
Do you spend a lot of time sitting at a desk or driving?
As a culture we are spending more and more time sitting, which can result in weak hamstrings and glutes, with tight quads and hip flexors. This combination causes a rounded-forward posture with an anterior pelvic tilt. Unfortunately, time spent on the bike is more time in this hunched over position, which can make the problem worse. Not only will shortened muscles impact your efficiency, comfort, and aerodynamics on the bike, but they will eventually lead to injury.
By incorporating stretching and mobility exercises into your routine, you'll be able to improve your range of motion, prevent injury, and perform at your best.
Stop treating the symptoms, fix the root of the issue.
Adaptive shortening is muscle tightness caused by a muscle being forced to remain in a shortened position for a prolonged period of time. Whether it be on a bike, in a desk chair, or on the couch, the cumulative time spent in these positions have real consequences on muscle structure.
This shortening causes a reduced range of motion, a feeling of tightness in the muscles, and added stress on the connected tendons. However, most symptoms will not show up until the muscle has already shortened a significant amount. The results are postural distortion and the replacing of normal contractile elements with non-contractile tissue.
The Untapped Power of the Hamstrings
An example common to most cyclists is tight and weak hamstrings. Running down the back of your leg, the hamstrings start at your hips and cross behind the knee joint. Their main job–extend the hip and flex the knee, two of the most important movements in the cycling motion. The upper portion of the hamstring plays a role in the down stroke, and the lower part is active in the up stroke. The muscle is affected in the following ways:
- The upper section of the hamstring muscles attached at the hip can become loose and weak.
- The lower section crossing behind the knee remains bent, and never fully extends. This is the portion that will become shortened and tight over time.
- The combination leads to muscle imbalance between the two ends of the muscles, which leads to chronically tight quads, stress, strain, and even serious injury, most common in the knee or lower back.
Your body will naturally try to keep muscles balanced on both sides by providing equal muscular support, but adaptive shortening prevents this from happening. As one end of a muscle loosens, the other end can become more and more shortened.
Finally, a cycling-specific program that helps increase your mobility for better on-bike performance.
You’re probably not a physiotherapist. Or an athletic therapist. Or a personal trainer.
But we are.
We are also cyclists.
Like you, we struggled to make stretching a daily priority. We knew if we did that we would:
✅ Be able to do long rides without low back pain
✅ Have increased aerodynamics for a faster, more efficient posture
✅ Stop getting dropped
✅ Get back our sense of pride from riding longer, farther, and harder
✅ Become fitter and reduce the risk of injury
✅ Enjoy riding again
So we decided to pool all our expertise and create a program that would help keep us accountable and on track.

What our members are saying:
Since doing the mobility program I have noticed big improvements and no longer have low back pain. I have even been able to increase my average speed on my daily ride, have not felt any discomfort on long rides (+200km) and overall my body feels better!
This program is not just great for cycling- it is great for all daily activities! I love to do the routines every morning after wake up, I don’t need to think what to do, I don’t need to think if I am doing too much or not enough. I no longer have nagging pain and I don’t feel any pain after long ride on the bike - that's a great feeling!
