Your ability to recover plays a big role in your results. The more training and riding you can recover from and the better you can recover from it the better your results will be.
For a long time now I’ve been an advocate of foam rolling to help address soft tissue in the recovery process. It is a tool that has helped a lot of riders but the guys at Kabuki Strength showed me that it isn’t the only way – or the best – way to go about it.
The Boomstick is a tool that I got the chance to use firsthand about a month ago and it opened my eyes to a whole new world of recovery strategies. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and the results I’ve seen are impressive.
I wanted to share more about the Boomstick, how it works and the results I’ve seen from it so I shot this video. Check it out to find out why you should look at adding it to your toolbox:
I also wanted to share some specific techniques using the Boomstick on some common problem areas for mountain bikers, the forearms and the VMO (the muscle on the inside of the knee that is chronically tight on most riders).

You can learn more about the Boomstick and Kabuki Strength at www.kabukistrength.com. I suggest following their social media channels, they have a lot of great content that they share to help build strength in a sustainable way.
I hope that I’ve piqued your interest with this new tool and the strategies it allows. Whether you invest in the Boomstick or experiment with other ways to apply these principles, it will open up new ways to help you recover from your training and riding today so you can ride strong tomorrow.
Until next time…
