We often see people warming up on a bike trying to increase their body temperature. But does this seem to be an appropriate way to warmup? The biggest amount of our population works in a sitting position for about 8 hours every day. So why would you choose a warmup in a sitting position? Wouldn’t it be a way more efficient to prepend a functional warmup which prepares you for your upcoming strength or interval trainings session? There is just this one right answer, “of course”. However, we expect a warm-up to do a lot more.
Does your daily routine mostly consist of unbalanced movements, like sitting in front of a worktable staring at your computer for around eight to ten hours? Are you standing all day long in the same position? After you finished working you tie your running shoes, or bike on an exercise machine to get out of your comfort zone for at least 30 minutes? If that’s the case you should care about the term “Piriformis-Syndrome”.
