As you continue with your progress, you seem to notice that you start having back pain. You didn’t have any back pains before, and you start to suspect that it is cycling that’s causing the back pains.
In this article, we are going to cover why is this so, and what you can do about it.
Cycling And Backpains
Before we explore the main point of the article, it is critical that you know about this about back pains…
If you are feeling a sudden onset of very painful back pains, DO NOT do any tips that you read from here or from the web. This kind of back pains must be consulted with a professional. Doing any “DIY” back pain tips may further complicate the problems.
Now that we have cleared that, we can move on…
One of the main reasons why you are having back pains is because of undeveloped core muscles or trunk muscles. Cycling develops your legs and arms, but it does not really develop your core muscle groups.
As your other muscles groups are developing, the trunk muscles are left behind and this is basically what’s causing the back pain for many.
What You Can Do About It
You must impart a bit of time to develop your core muscles. By doing so, you can rid the imbalance, and the back pains will most likely go away.
There are a lot of simple exercise routines for strengthening your core muscles. One check from YouTube, and you can already find one or two that suits your preference and time schedule.
Another solution is by doing Yoga as it de-stresses your muscles and slowly strengthens it at the same time. There are a lot of yoga moves for strengthening the back and your core muscle groups, but you can start with the child pose. Also, a lot of people have been reporting to have great success just by sitting for 10 minutes in a cross-legged position.
