Over the last couple of years I’ve been introduced to some things that have made me re-think how I approach training myself and other people. These things aren’t “new” exactly but better ways to look at some “old” things and how they can be applied to your training.
I’ve recently started to codify this new approach into a system I can use and teach to other riders. These are the 4 steps I’m now using to help riders improve their movement and performance which includes…
1 – Breathing
2 – Position
3 – Tension
4 – Movement
I sat down yesterday and recorded a short podcast sharing this system and some examples of how you can apply it to your own training.
You can stream the episode or download the MP3 file below:
I hope you’ll get some insights into things you can start doing today to improve your performance. Like I say in the podcast, you are only as strong as your weakest link and for most riders those weak links aren’t cardio and power, it’s the things previous steps that support them.
Trying to expand the conversation about what it takes to improve as a mountain biker is my goal and hopefully you’ll get some things to think about from this podcast. If you have any questions or thoughts about this podcast please post a comment on the blog or send me an email and I’ll get back to you.
Until next time…
