How to Guide

Ensure the seat height is adjusted so your leg still has a slight bend when extended on the bike. Ensure that you are the right distance away by adjusting the handle underneath the seat so that when you are sat upright you are not over stretching yourself when doing the full exercise. 

Avoid these 4 common mistakes

  1. Standing : Remember there is no weight resistance on the bike remain seated!
  2. Dropping the chest:  Not only can it cause harm to your lower back, but it takes the range of
    movement from your shoulders away from the exercise and hinders explosive energy.
  3. Arching your back: This can cause lower back pain, keep the chest high back straight!! 
  4. Giving up!!!!!!
