Distribution of body weight on the bike improves sustainability, performance and reduce discomforts and risk of injuries.
You can make improvements happen working on several areas: bike fitting, nutrition, training, sleeping management, core strength exercise and many more. Thanks to GCN for these 5 basic exercise to improve stability and posture on the bike.
Happy to have reserved my place and look forward to

My personal opinion:
Pros - better upper trunk and overall body stability, better aerodynamic position
Cons - it is not effortless to sustain this position, climbing in the standing position is not comfortable as having the hoods straight
It is helpful to know how to transfer your position to a new bike.
The following are the measurements to take:
3 Saddle Height
4 Saddle Setback
5 Handlebar Drop
Another way to transfer your position.
Thanks to Kevin Schmidt.
3 Measurements to Rule Them All. A simplified approach to ‘transfer’… | by Kevin Schmidt | Medium
More aerodynamic position vs. More comfort
It is time to have a more open hip angle? Shorter crank? Less saddle/handlebar drop?
Interesting research with reflexions on cyclists suffering hip pain.
