I felt blessed to work with this amazing group of young athletes and show them how they can put in specific relevant work on the bike while giving their joints a break. What an amazing experience and what a talented group of young female athletes. I was shocked to see how many of these young girls already had ACL tears and they are still in High School! We have to do a little better as porfessionals on educating not just the kids but the parents about why cross-training is important for young athletes.
Today we had the first actual RL52 Cycling sports specific session at Launch Sport Performance in Rockville, MD - Pre-Season Football Cycle! It was amazing to actually see football players on the bike in the cycling studio going through the sports specific sets, mimicing actual on-the-field work on the bike and listening to their feedback and reaction to this type of training. Oh yeah and the bike moves from side to side - its not just your ordinary bike...but an amazing cross-training tool.
