Attack position success story

Hi Lee,

Russ [my husband] and I were messing around at Arastradero, a local openspace area in Palo Alto. He was taking pictures of me, and I noticed how bad my body position was. After that, I started working on it, and we ended up with this picture.

Please let me know what you think. It took me a while to be able to do that again after a back injury (inflamed L5/S1 disc) with lots of PT. A few people told me that’s how I injured my back, but that body position does not put much pressure on the spine as long as your core muscles are strong enough to support yourself like that.

You’ll also see that I’m heavy feet/light hands too 🙂

Thanks for teaching me. I’m constantly learning, and I love that 🙂


Hey Anne, right on!

Your position looks great. Hips back, torso level, weight driving into feet, hands light and happy. I’m stoked you’ve worked on your stability and mobility. Now riding is going to be even more fun!

This photo was made during a private clinic in June 2008. Anne was having fun but struggling with a back injury and limited stability/mobility.

Very nice attack position. Game on!

Anne, thanks for sharing. Enjoy the Santa Cruz Mountains this winter. I will see you for more clinic action this January.
