Caleb Ewan's Sprint Position - Revealed through Kinesiology

Testimonials

MARY BETH FITZGERALD - 09.30.19
I credit my training sessions with Vince for helping me improve my shoulder strength, function, and pain  after a serious shoulder injury. After a thorough assessment, Vince designed a training program that built on my strengths while keeping my limitations in mind. He was there for me 100%.

Why I think Vince was especially helpful:
  1. Extensive knowledge of muscles and how they should work together. 
  2. Clear communication,encouragement and feedback.
  3. Wanted to maximize my potential while teaching safe strengthening and muscle/body control. 
I think successful training is both an art and a science and Vince is skilled and talented and I met my fitness goals with his direction.

Vincent is the best! After seeing multiple physical therapists and two MDs, I've found that Vincent provides better care even via remote appointments. He is thoughtful enough to do research before an appointment and customizes his approach to the client. For less money than I would pay for a physical therapy appointment (which would be half the time!) I felt that I got better advice and support. The exercises he suggested fit easily into my daily life and I can already tell there is significant improvement. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I am currently training with Vincent.

He's very good at what he does. When I started i did not have any control over my body, and had difficulty when I go to the gym. I now enjoy my time in the gym, and have been going consistently. He is very patient, and adjusts to your needs in training. He pushes you the right amount- not to overwhelm you, but to make sure you are pushing yourself to constantly improve yourself. His method is scientific yet not rigid, and allows a bit of flexibility. I am very happy with the experience, and have gained strength, control and flexibility with help from Vincent.

Dr. Maaz Badshah 2016

I trained with Vincent off and on over past three years. He is amazing at what he does. Although my stint with him was interrupted by a fractured arm (unrelated to training), I have always felt great working with him in achieving my fitness goals. He is patient, attentive, personalized and has an easy going approach to training. He will keep you very motivated. Two thumbs up. I am moving away from Indianapolis otherwise I would have continued training with him. P.S. Cycling enthusiasts, Vincent is a pro in the cycling circuit and has won many events.

How To Hold an Aero Position

There are climbs and then there are winds.  For many cyclists, riding into a strong wind can be more difficult than climbing, mostly because cyclists are required to reach a low aerodynamic position which can be uncomfortable, difficult or painful to hold.  Cyclists must demonstrate adequatehamstringandlower backflexibility to hold an aero position comfortably.  The flexibility needed to ride well in the wind can take time to develop, but with enough dedication and experience, anyone can become proficient at holding an aero position safely.  Here are some steps you can take to make holding an aero posture as comfortable as being on the hoods:

#1 LEARN YOUR LIMITS.
The worst thing a rider could do is force a low aero position and hope for the best.  With low back pain being one of the most frequent complaints among pros and recreational cyclist alike, the chances of long term pain- or injury-free riding are slim.  Develop the flexibility first, then shoot for the next lowest position yo…

Kinesiological Approach To Bike Fit: Cleat Position

CLEAT POSITION:  There are four types of adjustments which can be made to a cleat.
Fore/ Aft:  FORE:  Positioning the cleat forward allows the ankle to move more freely, allowing for a smoother pedal stroke.  The trade-off is that this requires more ankle stability, calf strength and puts the rider at risk of developing quad dominance.AFT:  This position limits ankle motion.  This provides added stability to the ankle, allowing the calves to rest, but makes the rider prone to bouncy pedal strokes.  When switching from a forward cleat position to a rearward position, a lower saddle position is needed to compensate for decreased plantarflexion.Lateral/ Medial:  The goal is to spread weight evenly across the foot side-to-side.LATERAL:  Shifts weight towards the outside of the foot (small toe side).MEDIAL:  Shifts more weight onto the medial side of the foot (big toe side).  Limits the maximum amount of external rotation available before the heel strikes the crank arm.Rotation:EXTERNAL:  S…

Eagle Creek Park Cycling Grand Prix v2.0 - FIRST PLACE & FIRST PODIUM FINISH!

I can't even begin to describe how awesome it felt to have two dreams come true at once!  I always wondered what it would be like to be on the podium, but I never thought I had a chance at first place!

THE COURSE Below is a map of the course highlighted in blue.  It ran counterclockwise.  There were a few corners that stuck out to me.
Bottom right (corner #1):  This wasn't a very sharp corner, but the trees and brush made it difficult to see around it, so the group had a tendency to slow down and merge into a single line here.
Top right (corner #2):  This corner was very sharp, so oftentimes the group would merge into one or two pacelines, especially at higher speeds.
Top left (corner #3):  The inside half of this corner was covered by loose asphalt, so it wasn't an ideal or safe place to pass.  Pretty much everyone had to take a very awkward, wide line.  We could only fit about three abreast in this corner.
Bottom left (corner #4):  This was a very fast corner that led straigh…
