RESEARCH

Thesis research:
KINEMATIC AND MUSCLE ACTIVATION PATTERNS DURING SIMULATED UPHILL PEDALING ON AN INDOOR CYCLE ERGOMETER. Benjamin Stein

COBR from On The Bike Idaho

The Center for Orthopaedic and Biomechanics Research at the Ron and Linda Yanke Family Research Park

In collaboration with Boise State University’s Center for Orthopedic and Biomechanics Research (COBR) On the Bike has extensively researched the biomechanical principles of the optimal bike fit and coupled them with advanced motion capture technologies (ViconNexus).This enables the precise measurement and analysis of a cyclist’s posture while pedaling. On the Bike will make dynamic adjustments customized to your personal anatomy, flexibility and riding objectives. http://cobr.boisestate.edu/

The Coach with the most! I’ve been working with Ben for a few years now and his guidance, support, and planning has made me into the triathlete I am today. From the Common Wealth Games to IM 70.3 World Championships he has never steered me wrong. I’ve learned to trust the process and I am proud to be part of his team!
"A few years back I became interested in using power based training to help me improve in some specific area. The problem was that although I had a power meter I had virtually no idea how to effectively incorporate it into a training program.
Ben was great in helping me understand the information from the power meter and more importantly designing training programs that helped me gain the most from my power based and training. For me, the power meter by itself was not enough. I definitely needed an experienced coach to help me.
If you are new to power training and are looking to get the most from it, I would highly recommend you work with Ben."

"Since I have been working with Ben, my workouts have become more structured and fun. Ben is a responsive and caring coach who will work with you to get you the results you want."
