Riding after hip surgery

Need to do single leg exercises in the gym to get that leg and hip up to par. Work both sides but do single leg exercises w/the weaker leg determining the weight and reps. E.g., lunges, Bulgarian split-squat, single leg Romanian deadlift, etc…

As for the saddle change and pain possibly related to it, I’d see a fitter and have your fit checked. Maybe your shims are inadequate or incorrect? If not the leg length, then it’s possible that when that weak leg gets fatigued, your form breaks down resulting in you compensating elsewhere and thus getting pain where you shouldn’t get pain.

It was the fitter who did the shims. They helped. Changing the saddle also helped a lot.
