Bicycle Radio NZ - Muscle balance and activation techniques

Today's episode covers:
  • Causes and cures of some common aches and pains
  • Muscles, tendons, ligaments + what they are and do
  • Identifying the causes of some aches and pains
  • A little bit about trigger points

Links mentioned:
Dr. Maffetone on muscle balance, manual biofeedback, and a set of awesome manual biofeedback articles: part 1, part 2, part 3
Crossfit vid showing muscle activation of hammys in running technique
Frost book link (I'm not an affiliate so I don't make $$ for recommending this)
Article of mine which mentions how aerobic muscle development helps support joints, etc

As I said, this is a huge topic with some equally huge benefits if used rightly.  Have a great weekend trying to read all of this stuff!
