Here's the thing... this video was accompanied by this rad message:
"This is the last table on the table/warm up line. It’s roughly 12-15’. Again just have to say thanks for the program. I haven’t touched a bike in 18-20yrs until this yr. Haven’t had a major spill yet and sincerely believe it’s because of the training."
Now you might be thinking to yourself:
All of which are completely normal.
My dad used to say:
"Confidence comes from Competence."
In other words, you will feel good about something once you've done it.
But the problem is, most riders don't have hours per day to practice.
And if they did, they'd probably lose their job or get yelled at by their loved ones to do something with their lives.
Because they have a life.
I'm here to say you can have both:
...and incredible riding skills.
Think about how amazing it would feel to soar like Lee does in this video!
And...have some confidence knowing that anyone can learn this...
With Lee, we focused on 3 things (It's our Movement Method for Mountain Bikers)...
See, if you just "work out" or "train," those things will help, but it leaves out the foundation.
The foundation is based on movement patterns.
If you can move like a pro, you can ride like a pro.
...Even if your bike isn't "world cup" tuned.
...Or your skills are "so-so", but you just want to have fun.
...Or if you only have limited time to improve.
Start by working on finding out what your weak points are - it's what we do in our higher-tier coaching programs.
Or, at least check with a doctor/physical therapist first.
Then, work on improving your movement patterns.
Here's a simple one to try:
When you are nearing a descent, especially one with rocks, roots, or a difficult turn:
Pay close attention to your hands and feet and be light on the bike.
Engage your pelvic floor muscles and allow your deep core to help you stand up a bit taller.
Don't poke your head up, or stick your chest out...
...Instead, you will feel your hands and legs relax a little bit when you do this right.
It's kind of like flexing the core, but not.
That one will help you relax and let the bike do it's job.
How was that?
Let us know what you think.
That's all for now - thanks for reading and we will catch you next time.
