Introduction to chest, shoulders and arms
Many riders become tight in their muscles and fascia in the chest area. These tensions will pull the shoulders forward. In some cases the head and neck will also be pulled forward causing an inappropriate position. This inappropriate position can long term cause pain. These tensions can be caused by stable work, office work, crooked use of the body and much more. It is important to loosen these tensions in order for our bodies to function optimally both in the saddle and throughout the day.
