We all learnt how to ride a bicycle when we were kids and hardly paid attention to our posture while taking a ride. Now when trying it to shed kilos it is important to be careful about your form. Here are a few things you must be careful about.
Your body should be neutral from head to toe
Do not stiffen your shoulders. Keep them down in a relaxing position and away from your ears.
Your hands should be in a relaxed position and shoulders bent to act as a suspension.
Your hands from the elbows to the fingers on the brakes should be in a straight line.
Keep your back neutral and spine straight. Do not slouch in the riding position as this causes backache.
Make sure your knees are exactly above the foot or pedal. If your knees are inclined then it might cause leg strain.
