Don't get fit and then go race that same week!

We performed a fit on a racer/bioengineering student one night. A few days later we then used Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish to show her the % of muscles she was not using. She spent about 1 hour on our system. She then raced the next day. Ouch!!!

We never know how your bike might be set up? So things can change big time using our CAD. Her fit really changed. We then worked her over w/ the Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish, her muscles/body did not get a break. It should be pointed out that the biofeedback has you doing the moves correctly, so you are using muscles and a greater % of muscle fibers. You are going to be sore!!!

Sonya is bright and is going to grad school at CU in bio-engineering. No question, school is a place to learn. Lesson learned "Too much - Too soon." Her hamstrings got cooked. When you change you fit, one needs to give their body time to adapt!!!

We say, 30 days to train the muscles (on the bike) and 21 days to change the brain.

Read about it at her blog.
