Coach Rod Murray will explain why the best injury is the one which you never get – thanks to predictive analysis and proactive off-bike exercises which you can do on your own. Rod will discuss the self-assessment tools which are detailed in his book, Dynamic Flexibility: A Guidebook to Foundational Fitness. You can use that self-assessment to predict your likelihood of succumbing to some of the common aches and pains associated with riding such as low back pain, shoulder and neck pain. Every participant will go home with a free copy of the Guidebook! Rod will also describe how to build a program of off-bike exercises to offset your weaknesses, enhance your cycling and help you attain your goals. Rod’s approach to building your core strength, mobility and balance will change the way you ride - for good! The timing is perfect as you take your winter training outdoors for the new season. To help you get the most out of the afternoon, Brian and Rod will leave plenty of time to answer your questions in this interactive workshop. Together, Coaches Lariviere and Murray want to help make this the year you crush all your cycling goals – smoother spinning, stronger climbing, and keeping up with whoever your pack may be.
