What are any good stretches or stretch routines that you do before riding? I am a little stiff, and getting hurt really easily. Anyone got anything? :D
I do that for about 4-6 times with each foot. I do two or three clockwise, and then switch to counter clockwise.
After that, I am flexible enough in my lower tendons to start stretching more intensely. Which is leaning over and touching my toes.
Then I stretch my arms by pulling my left arm to the right, and right arm towards the left as far as I can. And then I roll around my neck, stretching it. No one likes a kink in the neck from horseback riding. ouch.
After all that, I do something kind of crazy random looking if anyone were to see. lol I get a hula hoop, put on some music and work it! haha right in the middle of my apartment too. lol After the song is over, I am ready to ride. That is my stretching routine. lol
Thanks so much, I will definitely try that! lol that sound so fun.
