In this episode of the BikeJames Podcast, I recap the 3 lessons I took away over the course of the two day skills and fitness camp I hosted a few weeks ago. All four riders who made the trip made some big breakthroughs with how they moved on and off the bike and I hope that these lessons can help you too.
The importance of Isometric Training for developing strength.
The importance of having weight on your hands to drive your movement on the bike.
The importance of mobility training if you want to “ride for a lifetime”.
I also give a review of the Eliptigo M-SUB, which is a stand up bike that I used at the camp to help the riders get a better feel for some of the positions I was talking to them about. I think that it has a lot of potential for us as mountain bikers – definitely a better off season training option than a road bike – and you can check them out at https://www.elliptigo.com/ after you listen to the podcast if you’re interested in learning more.
Until next time…
