Start Riding and Performing to Your Potential Without Pain or Fatigue!
If you’ve been climbing Old La Honda and felt low back or knee pain – it’s very tempting to push through it and think that it will go away on its own. Or, you mark it off as a bad day and next time you’re riding it’ll be better.
There’s no obvious reason why it happened – and it is starting to slow your performance.
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this all the time! Low back and knee pain are the most common issues we see during our Bike Fit at COR.
When it comes to biking with pain or not at your maximal potential, everyone thinks”
“Why is This Happening to Me?”…
“Why Am I Still Dealing with Poor Riding For 6 Months (Maybe More)?
Most people think that things will get better over time.
That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if this pain never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still living with the issue on each and every ride – often even worse than it was when it came on.
Does that sound like you?
If you don’t know what you’re doing – pain or poor performance on the bike can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.
Do You Feel That Way Too?
If you’re currently living with impaired biking, here’s 7 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:
