    020: The importance of warming up before you ride.

    020: The importance of warming up before you ride.

    I honestly think riders should warm up before they get on their horse, I also believe it can be quick, efficient and doesn’t have to take up a whole lot of time.

    We’re in a bit of a chicken and egg situation with the whole thing really, because it’s not common and therefore not a universal method or approach in the equestrian industry, which seems bonkers to me because we beg to be seen as athletes but not joining in with a task that fundamentally prepares us for athletic performance!

    In this podcast we talk about the importance of warming up and be sure check out these videos for an example warm up.

    019: Your Dream Day

    019: Your Dream Day

    In the episode this week I take you through a powerful visualisation exercise 'Your Dream Day'

    I try to emphasise how important it is to go into your mind and see what's going on in there. In order to help accomplish this, I use an exercise called “Your Dream Day', It's incredible how many of my clients have such a hard time with this task because they have lost track of what they want.

    This exercise will help you to:

    Pay attention to what you want
    Be committed to your own desires
    Explore what makes you happy
    Feel elated!

    If you want the worksheet to accompany this exercise join us in the Ride Strong Academy, a monthly membership site for equestrians. Each month get

    - Fitness plan with PDF and Videos
    - 15 recipes
    - Mindset workbook

    Join us for as little as £10 monthly, no commitment required!

    In this podcast I am going to go through some of my PhD research which explains HOW isometric muscle work causes high heart rates during horse riding activities. We will also discuss how we might train riders to resist isometric fatigue and why not being strong enough might limit your riding performance.

    WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

    The response your body has when exposed to isometric muscle actions
    Why heart rates are high during equestrian activities.
    Ways we can train to resist fatigue
    Where the research will go next and why it is important

Informative and Helpful

As always Jenni delivers great content and relevant information that I can relate to and put into practice.

I have had the opportunity to learn from her 1:1 and now do the monthly membership package and at £10 a month it is a bargain.

These podcasts help me on a day to day basis and with my horse riding.

Look forward to receiving the notifications for new podcasts.
