You need optimal shoulder function to perform your best. If you’ve experienced any kind of shoulder injury, you know how it can “take you off your game” and make for more pain and less efficiency on your rides.

On video number four I teach you how to work on the posture of your thorax, a.k.a., the rib cage, and those key muscles that get tight and wreak havoc for the shoulder. After doing these tips, you’ll gain range of motion, experience better breathing and better performance off and on your bike.
