That's an interesting comment, about working on having good upper body strength. I have to agree with that. One lesson I had, my teacher said that to have a good upper body position and frame from which to have a steady hand, one should have some portion of the upper arm behind the middle of the torso, maybe even behind the back and kind of tighten the muscles in the arm pit area, of all places, as if we were trying to hold a $100 bill there throughout our ride. Helps to keep the collarbone open and the upper arm vertical. It takes activating muscles and will tire you after awhile.
Totally off topic, and not meant to highjack a thread, I wish someone had told me to strengthen my upper body befor my baby was born. You'd be surprised how tiring it is to carry an 8 lb. Baby around nearly all day.!
