Rodrigo Bini, PhD

Cycling and Exercise Biomechanics


I am a trained biomechanist and an ESSA Accredited Exercise Scientist working as a Senior Lecturer at the La Trobe Rural Health School. I teach biomechanics and research methods subjects in the Bachelor of Exercise Science (Bendigo). My research interests involve biomechanics of exercise and sports, with special attention to cycling and running. I also conduct studies on internal body loads during resisted training exercises and occupational tasks.

I am also a research associate at AUT-Sprinz and hold an honorary position supervising HDR students at UEL-Brazil.

I serve as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Science and Cycling and I am a member of the editorial board of the Sports Biomechanics journal, European Journal of Sports Sciences, Isokinetics and Exercise Science, and Human Movement journal.

What is the purpose of this blog?

In this blog I intend to summarise and update anyone interested in cycling and exercise biomechanics on topics that are relevant for helping athletes improve their performance and reduce the risk of injuries. See links for all content in the top of the page.
