A lot of my Mtn bikers have confidence issues when going back on the trail!
😩They worry about re-injury😔
👉 They have lost confidence
👉 They don't like starting from a lower level of skill
(I don’t either)
💪 They want to be back at where they were before the crash or injury
There are some main tips that I give them to help crush through the mental challenges!

More specifically your back leg's hip!
