The final stretch we recommend for cyclists is the Tibialis anterior. The stretcher lies supine and points their toes using their calf muscle; this lengthens the tibialis anterior to its end of range. Cup the right heel with your left hand and hold the top of the foot and the stretcher should slowly attempt to pull their foot back towards their knee. The isometric pull through the tibialis anterior is followed by relaxation and deep breathing. On an exhale the stretcher should contract their calf muscle and increase their plantarflexion (deepening the tibialis stretch).
Obviously we could not include every stretch required for this sport instead this blog will aimed to cover the main stretches used and maybe a few you may not have thought of previously. Please remember to follow the safe stretching tips we have given you in the previous blog as well as the individual safety tips for static and PNF stretching.
