Poor cycling posture can lead to sacroiliac joint pain. At worst, this can even lead to an SIJ blockage. When the sacroiliac joint tears, it sends shooting pains in different directions. SIJ pain is exacerbated by external rotation or bending motions in the hip joint.

We'll show you SIJ exercises to prevent or help you release an SIJ blockage. If you experience frequent SIJ pain or the situation worsens, please consult a doctor or therapist.

3 times a week with 1 recovery day in between

Perform the SIJ exercises three times a week and allow at least one day of recovery in between.

Exercises to help release SIJ blockage:
  • Release glute tension
  • Loosen and stretch hip flexors
  • Hamstring stretch
  • Shoulder mobilisation

Release tension in the buttocks from sitting on the bike.

Release glute tension

Sit down and place the STANDARD or BALL 08 under one buttock. Place the leg of the same side over the other placed leg.
