Get Up Windmill for Better Cornering

I love the Kettlebell Windmill exercise to help improve the type of hip mobility and core strength we need to get into great body position when cornering our bike, which maximizes your speed and momentum turns.

However, a lot of riders struggle with it and can not benefit from the ride changing benefits. This is where the Get Up Windmill – which is a part of the overall Turkish Get Up – provides a great alternative.

In this video I share how to execute this little used exercise and explain what you need to focus on as a mountain biker to get the most out of it.

    James, this movement rocks. I mean, wow. Really exposing some left/right asymmetry-and dialing in on appropriate t-spine mob, hip mob, and trunk / core stability! This is a true keeper! I’m going to make every one of my clients own every phase of this.Thank you my friend, for sharing. You rock!
