Win a free copy of my new KB Swings for MTB Virtual Workshop

On Friday I will be releasing a new product that represents a new education-based direction for MTB Strength Training Systems – a Kettlebell Swings for Mountain Biking Virtual Workshop.

Instead of just giving you a workout program, this Virtual Workshop will allow me to go into each part of the KB Swing in more detail. You’ll come out of it with a much better understanding of how to execute a perfect rep, how to avoid common mistakes and how to get the most transfer from the gym to your bike.

I’m excited to bring this new Virtual Workshop to you because it allows me the chance to do what I love, which is dig into the details behind exercises that can make a big difference in your results. No matter what workout program you are using, knowing how to do a great KB Swing can help you get more out of every rep.

To get things kicked off I wanted to have a couple of contests to give away some copies of the Virtual Workshop when it is released on Friday.

You have two ways you can enter…

First, you can leave a comment below this blog post. Tell me how KB Swings have helped your riding or why you want to start using KB Swings in your workouts.

Second, you can post a video of you doing some KB Swings on Facebook or Instagram. Use #kbswingsformtb and tag me in the video (MTB Strength Training Systems on FB and BikeJames on IG) so I know to count it as an entry.

I’ll be selecting 3 winners from each group to win a copy of the KB Swings for Mountain Biking Virtual Workshop and one Grand Prize Winner who will get a free Skype video coaching session so I can personally help them with their Swings.

So be sure to enter for your chance to win (you can leave a comment and post a video if you want) and I’ll in touch on Friday with the winners and details on the special deal I’m having for the release this weekend.

Until next time…

Ride Strong,

James Wilson

    The KB swings really helped me immensely with maintaining core stability while engaging in the dynamic hip movements needed to generate controlled bunny hops and extra distance for those gap jumps and clearing natural trail features. It would have to be the second most valuable concept that James has shown me, the first being my catalyst pedals that give me the stable platform needed to launch this movement while on the bike. Thanks BikeJames you take the sketchy out and put the fun back into MTB for me!

    When I was posted in Afghanistan a few years back I did all of my training in the base gym. The 8 months I was there I used more than one of James programs that included the kettle bell swings. I was doing all of this training in preparation for the Downiville Classic once I returned state side. My goal was under 3 hours, which I had fallen short of for the 2 previous seasons. So without even riding a bike outside I was in good enough shape to smoke the race, 2:49.. and I attribute it to James program and using the stationary bike for intervals.. The kettle bell swing was a foundational move in everything I did and it is still a key component of my strength training.

    As a TRX instructor and mountain biker, I have included the single hand kettlebell swings to my own and clients routines. It is the single hand/alternate swing method. We do 3 sets 1 minute each for endurance. I also have included the standing KB Windmills to enhance hip mobility. I have lower back issues and when I started mountain biking around 7 years ago, I would ride with my lower back screaming in pain! So that is when I found your website and purchased your exercise routine for lower back pain. I am now riding lower with no or very little back pain. I have also followed your advise an incorporated dead lift to my routine.
    Thanks James!

    When I was doing the KB Swings, I noticed an increase in the time I was able to hold the attack position and do standing pedaling.

    Kettlebell swings don’t just help with my strength and attack position, I also find them a great way to keep my endurance up for riding.

    I want to start using KB Swings in my workouts to develop a better hip hinge that translates to better movement on the bike.

    I am recovering from a sciatic attack and my physical therapist says that I have a glute strength imbalance. I had just purchased a kettlebell right before the sciatica came on. Seems like this KB Swing program would be just right to help address my glute imbalance so I will be able to get back on my bike.
