#9 - Pedaling a Bike: Glute your way to bigger power & less fatigue
/

Today we will hear from our own Dr Glen Winkel about an innovative pedaling technique he developed from his experience with speed skating.  Glen says the key is glute recruitment,  and the ability to use glutes in addition to quads and other leg muscles to apply power to the pedals for as much of the pedal stroke as possible. 

Glen says he was seeking a way to use more of his muscle mass to save his quads for his finishing sprint, and he learned about using his glutes in speed skating.  He thought he would try to find a way to make it work on a bike to increase power while reducing the stress on any single muscle group. 

On our podcast today, hear Glen tell his story and describe his technique for becoming more efficient and powerful in pedaling a bike.
