Do your feet fall asleep when you ride?
Have you ever experienced pain, numbness, or discomfort in your feet or ankles from the stirrups?
There are several causes for this, but most often it is simply a result of poor leg position and stirrup placement. Essentially there is unnecessary pressure being created that blocks circulation or starts to actually damage tissues, causing the discomfort.
Sadly, for many riders this happens as a result of trying so hard to achieve a certain position – keeping their heels down, keeping a tight leg, pointing their toes out, etc.
In this video, I want to show you how you can stop the pain or numbness from occurring, and have a more secure and effective leg position, by changing just a few simple things.
