Do You Ever Feel Stiff or Uncoordinated When You Ride?

When you are riding, do you ever feel totally uncoordinated? Perhaps your riding instructor tells you to move a certain way or tries to describe a feeling, but you just don’t get it or you can’t seem to get yourself to move that way? Maybe you do feel it, for a second, but then you can’t get the feeling back.

Today, I’d like to share a concept that may help you – this is something that affects all riders, and fortunantly, you can improve it even when you aren’t actually riding.

What I’m talking about is body awareness, also called body control or your proprioception. It is essentially the ability to move with ease, mobility, and coordination. When we don’t use a certain part of our body, we begin to lose our awareness there. However, the good news is there are many different activities we can do that will improve our ability to move and our ability to ride. Watch the video below to learn more!

 

Leave a comment – what is one activity that you do now or that you could start doing that could increase your body awareness?

See you in the comments!
