That's a basic juicer.

Feel free to incorporate balance to your routine. If you really want to learn some stuff, go buy a membership at www.rynopowergym.com and learn from the boss that shared knowledge with me (and got Aaron Gwin to his winning ways) it'll be the best $10 you ever spent.

Slag, to bring you up to speed - my crash in 2010 resulted in shattered hip sockets (bi-lateral acetabular fractures) and my right femur blasted through my pelvis making its way to my sciatic nerve. The surgeon said my sciatic nerve had a perfect dent from the ball of the femur... luckily the nerve was not severed. Oh, my left collar bone snapped too... but who's counts that?

Thank you and yes the hard work is paying off. Fear is a double edge sword. On one hand it's an instinct that can keep us alive and on the other, fear robs many from the human experience. For those who believe that nothing is impossible opens the door to anything being possible. A life of limitation is no life for me. My caution comes in my preparation. The same reason Aaron Gwin is winning World Cups is the reason I can ride downhill again at "vet speed" pace. It's about understanding and dedicating your life to the artless art.

Thank you captain obvious. Crazy leg is my stick, left leg is my stump. When your femur blasts through your pelvis and makes love to your sciatic nerve, loss of feeling and control occurs... followed by complete atrophy. It's a long road to get it back. We wish it was summer too.

Thank you for being open to the inspiration. I understand your frustration with the paralyzed foot... was your sciatic nerve severed or just bruised? My foot is still weak and limited but improving every week. Understand the role of expectation - if you believe you will heal, you will heal. Some hints for your nerve regeneration: scar tissue is non-conductive (neurons will not pass through scar tissue) destroy scar tissue or it will destroy you, b-vitamins are rocket fuel for nerves (we are what we eat) and finally, be patient. Nerves demand time, no way around it. Best of luck in your journey, hope your wife understands when you're pinned again :)

Protour, the human body is an amazing instrument when it's healthy - and even more amazing when it's traumatized. The fact is, the body wants to live and will do anything to adapt provided the mind allows adaptation... or limitation. Human life is a short affair and it's best to live out doing what we love. I'm happy to say in my return to the downhill bike, I've been riding within my physical limits, but my mind demands more. It's this harmony of mental demand that causes my body to react, heal and progress. thank you all for taking the time to view this edit, happy trails and never say die.
