What Does Your Alignment Look Like On The Bike?


So one of the things we wanted to take a look
at on the bike is the alignment through the front of the chain. So we want to see a straight line, Angela
is doing pretty well, straight line through the foot, knee and hip through here, so you
don’t see your knee turning in because if you’re trying to generate force or putting
force through it and your knee is doing any kind of a turn in, like how Angela is now
kind of doing, which sometimes happens if your foot’s collapsing, you’re going to
get into a lot of knee pain and sometimes even hip pain. So really focus on keeping a good alignment
through the whole foot and when you’re pushing pressure through your foot really trying to
keep a central pressure. If you’re using clip-less pedals, this will
help you stay central on the pedal. If you’re not using clip-less pedals and
you have a flat pedal like Angela, really try and keep the pressure through the mid
foot and pulling through with the solid pressure through your foot in that alignment.
