Day 8 tandem life riding around Maui with Chad & Brooklyn... He's smashing away on the front, doing intervals to get ready for the road race season starting back home in 2-ish weeks. She's sitting up nice and cozy on the back, singing along to Queen's greatest hits, snacking on shaved ice. One bike, two experiences, travelling along in perfect balance. -

From a purely physical perspective, yoga is not only about lengthening the muscles but also strengthening them. You can't have one without the other. Well you can, but this will more than likely lead to injuries. As cyclists we have a tendency, for obvious reasons, to focus on the lower body when it comes to strength work. A strong torso though is essential when it comes to your overall comfort on a bike. And, Chaturanga or low push up, is an all round winner when it comes to strengthening the torso.
It strengthens and tones the wrists, arms, abdominal muscles, and lower back and it prepares the body for long days in the saddle. It also strengthens the muscles surrounding the spine, which helps to improve posture.
At first glance, Chaturanga looks similar to a fitness-based push-up. But there are important differences between the two. It’s crucial to ensure you are performing the pose with correct alignment; otherwise, it’s very easy to injure your shoulders, elbows, and wrists. Do not attempt learning Chaturanga on your own. It’s best to learn the pose from a qualified teacher. If you do not yet have the strength to do the version in the photo, it's best to practice with knees down until you can support your full body weight correctly.
Lastly, although the pose demands strength, you can’t simply conquer it through sheer force and muscular effort. Instead, it takes patience and a willingness to accept where you are right now. The essence of the pose is demonstrated in your ability to flow with all of life’s challenges, just like riding a bike 😊. Top Tip: Do not let your shoulders drop below the height of your elbows. It’s better for your shoulders to be too high in the pose than too low. #yoga#cycling#strength#training#fitness#soulfitadventures

#beautifulday - but #super#windy.
Yesterday's ride was a challenge- 25mph gusts will knock you off balance if you're not paying close attention.
