Biomechanics of Knee Motion
Over the years of clinical practice, the implications of individual human biomechanical differences were always challenging in runners and cyclists. For example, in runners, the impact of foot pronation of each individual while running can be difficult to judge. What is “normal” for that person? In cycling, the issue of knee motion can bring similar questions. Are my knees “symmetric”? While watching the Tour de France, it was interesting how varied bike positioning and knee motion seemed to be with elite cyclists.
Our friend John Weirath, a physical therapist and professional bike fitter, presents his thoughts on knee motion in one of his interesting VIDEOS from his website, Bike Fit Advisor, that we thought we would pass along. John’s advice is often simple, practical and easy to apply. Check the video out here.
