My doctor has recommended cycling to heal from a leg injury.
I think it is working, but, unfortunately, another problem is arising.
My right leg was injured (in the Adductor) and I seem to compensate it by making more effort with the left leg. I end up with a stiff calf after 20 minutes of heavy-ish cycling. To avoid a new injury, I have to wait a couple of days before going back to the gym.
How can I reduce this stiffness ? Should I drink more liquids ? Eat bananas ? (they are cheap here, I am from Brazil. And I remember hearing something about cramps and bananas) Do some sort of warm up exercise ? (which ?)
