An important part of becoming a better rider is understanding how certain movements connect to the skills you need on the trail to be a good mountain biker. Once you understand that you can then use exercises to target specific movement skills in order to help you ride faster, longer and with more confidence on the trail.

The TRX is a great training tool for us as riders since it allows us to work on some of those movement skills in unique and valuable ways. In this video I show you 3 exercises using the TRX and explain how they target different technical skills you need on your bike.
