Topic: Happy Hips And Knees: Prehab And Rehab To Keep You Training Pain-Free

Problems at the hip and knee—from generalized pain to piriformis syndrome, iliotibial band issues, and patellar tendonitis—can derail your training and wipe out your triathlon season. But with some preemptive self-care, you can maintain a healthy balance in the hips to benefit both your body and your odds of peak performance. Coach and yoga teacher Sage Rountree will show you easy ways to avoid and minimize problems in the hip and knee so you can train all summer happily free of injury and discomfort.

In this webinar we’ll:

  • Review the anatomy of the hip and knee in layman’s terms
  • Investigate the imbalances that lead to problems in the hip and knee
  • Assess how training habits, equipment choice, bike fit, and lifestyle contribute to hip and knee issues
  • Learn strengthening, stretching, and balancing exercises to prevent injury
  • Explore interventions to use when hip and knee pain flare up, so you can continue training pain-free
