Being balanced on your bike comes down to one thing - body position. Without good body position you will struggle to find flow and apply other skills to your bike. However, despite the importance of it few riders really understand what good body position is, why it is so important and how to fix it.
This video covers the basic Body Position Clinic I use to show my clients how to understand and apply this all important concept. I also go over 3 essential exercise that you can use off the bike to help you fix and ingrain better movement so you can apply it to the bike. Once you get this concept down you'll find that you are much more consistent on the trail and will have an easier time applying more advanced skills, like the Cornering Drills article
I posted a while back.
