This is one exercise book made specifically with the rider in mind — it focuses on the mental and physical fitness skills you need to perform better in the saddle, including quick responses, elastic muscles, and mobile joints.

Eckart Meyners' exercises are easy to learn and do so can fit them in around your busy riding and work schedule. His unique workouts include balance exercises, stretching, and muscle conditioning, both on the ground and in the saddle. Meyners also introduces you to his "6-Point Program" and provides workouts that apply to each important area of the rider's body.

In addition, you'll find a complete rider warm-up and cool-down plan!
