Basic Muscles Explanation
The basic leg muscular group involved in running, walking or bicycling is the quadriceps, located in the front part of the thigh. It is formed by the vastus medialis, in the inner part of the thigh; the lateralis, in the lateral side of the thigh; the intermedius that is beweeen the lateralis and medialis and the rectus femoris, that is on top of the vastus intermedius in the superior center part of the thigh.
Muscles & Joint Actions
In the push phase, the knee extends and the thigh separates from the tibialis anterior (shins) to complete the leg extension. In the recovery phase, when we flex the knee, the calves and iliotibialis contract to help the elevation of the leg.
Aerobic exercises that involve pedal motion are very popular in fitness gyms and outdoors. The bicycle, in any of its forms, is very important to strenghten the inferior limb muscles, and increase the cardiopulmonary capacity. It is useful in knee and ankle rehabilitation due to the low impact movement and the dynamics of the motion.
