There has been an unfortunate trend lately in jumping to adopt a position of style rather than one of function and stability.
I recognized the problem with this in my own riding when I started jumping higher and higher without a solid foundation. As a young teenager, I started having a lot of falls and it really shook my confidence jumping for several years.
Today, I'd like to share an exercise I learned to help you become more stable and secure in your jumping position.
Even if you don't jump, this is an exercise that will improve your balance and your confidence.
