Our bodies adapt to being on the bike. Our nervous system locks in to the posture and repetitive movements, setting those positions as habitual postures. This improves our efficiency of movement when on the bike, but does not lead to a balanced system to move once we get off the bike.

It only takes a few minutes post ride to release that tension out of your system and reset. Here are a few critical areas of the body and movements to go through post ride. Your hips, thighs, spine, shoulders and neck will love you for it and reward you on and off the bike.

As a semi pro ultra runner I’m always looking for a tune up to make the many miles I run more efficient. Brian helped me rework a movement pattern in my shoulder, and abdominal rotation resulting in a 30 second per mile speed up, while feeling like I’m running with the same easy effort.
I also enjoy Scott’a yoga classes to help me relax and reset my very stiff body.
