Cycling is a fantastic cardiovascular workout. Which means it assists with cardiovascular fitness healthy lungs and good breath. Of course, not every moment of every ride is bliss, especially preparing for the long-haul tail end of the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Plus Bikeweekly, explains that although cycling can make you smarter and happier it can also lead to back pain, muscle cramps and joint discomfort if you do not prepare the body for the ride.
Does Cupping Prepare the body for Cycling?
Cupping has been known to help athletes heal from injuries or recover from surgeries faster. Cupping therapy first came into the public foreground after Michael Phelps, (cupping fan) won gold medals for swimming in the Olympic games.
“It helps to stimulate the chemical breakdown of toxins that delay muscles and tissue from healing,” says Bellabaci founder and CEO Keren Trabelsi.
Cupping therapy also helps to alleviate pain and inflammation. As the cup is applied and massaged in circular motions (so not to leave red marks on the body), the suction lifts muscle and tissue beneath it away from the bone. This allows fresh blood and lymph fluids to circulate while you prepare for the biggest cycle tour in the country.
