Optimal Recumbent Bike Seat Setting?
« on: August 17, 2016, 10:57:17 PM »
I haven't been here in a while because my (self) physical therapy seems to be allowing me to avoid any significant OA symptoms so far (and not withstanding that 2014 JAMA study that found PT for that to be no better than placebos). I'm adding recumbent biking to my regular leg workout, resistance bands, and elliptical. To correspond loosely to hockey fatigue, I set the resistance pretty high and try to go 3 miles in 10 minutes. To work as much of my upper thigh as possible, I prefer to take the seat down a bit. So far, I set it just short of where I feel any sensation from my hip that was bothering me. I'm assuming that if I feel anything in my hip, pedaling there would more likely make my hip worse than provide any benefit like increasing ROM, correct? (Thanks in advance.)
