Class Description: 
This class is really for athletes of all kinds, but is particularly effective for cyclists. It's a full-length class that is best done at least a couple times a week if you want to see results. David targets the key muscles that are in high demand when riding your bike and also spends time releasing those that become tight because of the posture you need to maintain for so many hours on your bike. Note: You will need access to a wall.

I was on my feet all day and than went for a short ride, I was debating about just doing nothing but felt like I wanted to do a bit of grounding and unwinding. Than I saw this class and it was perfect. What a great way relieve my tired legs and ground me at the same time. Thank you

This was very intense. I

This was very intense. I felt a sensation I haven't experienced in almost 30 years and then I realized I was feeling some of the physical and emotional sensations I experienced during labor. I've never had such an emotional response to any of my yoga practice. As I am just beginning my yoga learning it was a surprise to me. Clearly there is a very spiritual connection at work here. Gives me hope that I can heal my body of my chronic pain condition. Love this website!

Amazing, but looking for something a little different

That was amazing! I stretched parts of my legs I've never stretched before! Definitely using this from now on.

I'd like to ask though: I came looking for a session that focused on helping with bike fit. The aggressive position requires a lot of flexibility and core strength. Could you suggest a video that focuses on hip flexibility, trapezius strength and core strength?

Nice recovery class for athletes. Great for cyclist, runners that need release in the hips, quads and hamstrings.

I do weight lifting and rock climbing, and this class was amazing. Some intense stretching in here, but that's what many of us desperately need. The poses are held long enough to really get into things. My only comment is I didn't know how close to the wall my torso was supposed to be at the end there... had to do a bit of guessing. Also, David spontaneously did some sort of clap refocus thing - seems like a cool tool for us too, I wish he'd explain what that was!

Re: closeness to the wall

In general the closer to the wall, the deeper the quadricep stretch, so you can judge for yourself where you want to be. And thank you for pointing out the 'clap'! That is, in fact, a way of creating an audio spike so we know to remove a piece when we edit. We missed that in the editing room but have now removed it.
Take care,
David

I found this session helpful

I found this session helpful too.

Regarding the clap at 40 min, I wonder if that was just a way for David to mark a spot where he intended to go back and edit the video later. Or it might just be a healthier version of the facepalm I find myself doing at my desk a half dozen times a day.
