The following can be adjusted in order to facilitate optimal breathing:

  1. Handlebars can be adjusted to ensure an upright position.
  2. Seat position can be adjusted forward and back to ensure participants are not over stretched and/or hunched.
  3. Stem length (where possible) can be adjusted so that participants are not over extended, and sufficiently upright.
  4. All of the above.

Answer: D - All of the choices in this problem are adjustments that can be made in order to facilitate optimal breathing. The indoor bike should be adjusted to ensure an upright position that will open the chest and lungs to facilitate breathing rather than hunch and constrict. Advice and assistance should be offered to all participants on bike fit and posture to aid optimal breathing technique.
