I hope you’re having a great weekend so far and got the chance to get some good rides in. I got the chance to go ride the new downhill trails at the local ski resort yesterday and test out the new jumps on the Black Diamond trail. They were some pretty big jumps, with a few approaching 30 feet or so, but I made it down them all without any wrecks and a lot of grins.
However, there was one point where I was glad I have been doing my kettlebell training – it literally may have saved my season.
After clearing a big jump the first time down I slammed into some moto-style whoops (basically large, man made braking bumps) that were put in to encourage you to slow down for the next turn, which leads directly into a sweet step down jump.
I was so focused on clearing the jump and so pumped when I did that I totally forgot about slowing down for the whoops until my bike was getting ripped out from underneath me.
Luckily I realized my mistake and reacted fast enough to keep things under control long enough for me to ride it out. I missed the turn and had to just stop on the side of the trail but I was stoked I wasn’t lying in a broken pile a little further up the track.
It was one of those moments that make mountain biking, well, “mountain biking”. Every once in a while, the trail conspires against you and tried to see if you have the strength, balance and reactions to deal with it.
And being able to absorb a large, unexpected impact and not get thrown off the bike requires the kind of strength and body awareness that can be tough to build on the bike by itself, which is where kettlebell training comes in.
I’ve used kettlebell training to help me improve my mountain bike specific strength, power, endurance and movement quality in one convenient, time efficient package for over 10 years now, which is why I know it was at least partially to thank for helping me avoid what could have been a season ending wreck.
Because of this I’m also passionate about helping other riders enjoy the benefits of kettlebell training through my MTB Kettlebell Conditioning Program. I created it 5 years ago and since then it has gone on to be one of my most popular programs, helping a lot of riders transform their riding.
But, as good as the current Kettlebell Conditioning Program is, I also know that there is always room for improvement. Over the last few years I’ve learned some new exercises and methods that deliver even better results.
It is because of the addition of these new exercises and methods I have found it necessary to update the MTB Kettlebell Conditioning Program.
And today is the last day to get it for $29 (that’s 25% off the regular price) plus over $300 in free bonuses as well.

I know that kettlebell training can help you ride faster, longer and with more confidence on the trail. Now is the perfect time to start letting it work for you. Stop hearing about how great kettlebell training is and experience it for yourself with the new MTB Kettlebell Conditioning Program v3.
Oh, and if you are in the Grand Junction/ Fruita CO area be sure to check out the trails at Powderhorn Bike Park. I’ve certainly had a lot of fun on them and found them a good way to enjoy the results of my kettlebell training.
Just keep an eye out for the whoops after the big, straightaway 30-footer.
Until next time…
