It is challenging to train the hamstrings and hip flexors on a regular bike. Therefore, we use most of our efforts to push the pedals down and never pull the pedals up.
Power Crank offers a different way to train better upstroke pedaling power. The pedal arms on the crank work independently, which forces you to work much harder in the upstroke pedaling phase. Now you are forced to make an active upstroke to keep pedaling. That should make you stronger and more efficient.
I can not recommend the Power Crank yet because I have never tried it or the riders I train. But hopefully, I will try it out in the future.
Better than one leg riding
I have tried to ride my bike with only one pedal clicked in, but I don’t think that works very well. It does not feel like cycling, and it isn’t easy to maintain a reasonable speed. Therefore I am pretty interested in experiences made with the Power Crank system.
So if you have tried it, please let me know about it. Otherwise, we will have to wait until I have tried it and made a review of the Power Crank.
