Ground exersizes....for the rider.
So I was looking to strengthen myself and get myself into shape and maybe lose a few pounds. I mean everyone says i dont need to lose anything but id feel better about myself if i did. I'm 16, and the only problem with running and stuff for me is I have a bone condition, where i have tumors on nearly every joint of my body that can cause pain. Ugh so i wanted to see if you guys had any suggestions on exersizes that will help me with my riding, but not put too much pressure on my joints ?

Lots of core strengthening! Plank, squats, hip lifts, etc.

Heres a good excersize/blurb from my Coach about helping position. :wink: (click on the link on the website)
