Basics/Benefits
The Sidebend Hip Hike is a precise sequence of movements whose purpose is to maximize power output to the crankarms by taking advantage of all the muscles of a cyclist's body. As the cyclist begins the upstroke on one side, he or she "hikes" the hip, pulling it toward the shoulder as the spine bends away from the hiking side.

The Sidebend Hip Hike improves a cyclist's cadence by optimizing weight shift from side to side and by using the handlebars and pedals as dynamic "platforms" for power generation and stability.
