I can’t believe another month has passed and it’s time for another Workout of the Month. Hell, I can’t believe my kids start school again next week.
The main reason this summer has gone by so quickly for me is that it’s been a lot busier than last summer with the opening of the Catalyst Training Center. I’ve already hosted two free clinics and had a couple riders come in for the free workouts I host each week, which has been a great way to introduce riders to the unique training and riding systems I’ve developed.
Like you can see in these monthly workouts, the training programs I’m creating aren’t like anything else you can find. Combining Isometrics and the Steel Mace with standard tools like Kettlebells and Sandbag allows me to explore the next evolution of mountain bike training and I’m excited to have riders like you along for the ride to help me test it out.
You can download the workout by signing up below below. Just enter your email and you’ll get the link to download the PDF to your computer. Each exercise has a link to a video demo so you have everything you need to get going.
Remember to start and end you workout with some sort of mobility routine. It’s important to be moving well before you start training, otherwise you’re just laying fitness on top of dysfunction. You can check out this blog post for a follow-along demo of a good routine to use if you need one.
Remember too that while I incorporate some unique training tools and methods like Ramping Isometrics and the Steel Mace into these workouts, I do provide some alternatives if you don’t have access to them.
Enjoy this month’s workout and stay tuned for a new podcast next week. I’ve got some good topics to touch on, including a rider question about balance training for mountain biking and the difference between weight and pressure on your rear tire when climbing.
Until next time…
p.s. If you really want to get an idea of what is coming next in the world of mountain bike fitness and skills training then you should come hang out with me for a couple of days at the Primal Skills Camp in September. This two day camp will completely change your riding now and for years to come.
Plus, I’m extending the Early Bird Sign Up bonuses through the end of the month so you still have the chance to get $149 in bonuses when you sign up. But there are only a few spots left so don’t wait, visit https://www.bikejames.com/primal-skills-camp to learn more and reserve your spot.
