Thread: Handcycle and shoulders question?

  1. #11
    easier to turn/steer and if your locked out and you turn hard it could really jack your opposing knee up. I like just a gentle bend, to much and youll pull yourself into the center piece crushing your manhood.

    Hey Dj.

    Keeping them "locked out" straight is bad in itself but then the added bounces here and there cause over extension. (I'm sure there's a proper term) Basically though, you wouldn't want your joints being pushed back beyond straight.

    Yup. Hyperextension. It's bad for your ligaments too.
