I had a local news crew pick up a press release I sent out about Aaron Gwin winning the National Championship and they came in to do a story on my facility and the mountain bike training programs I offer. Check it out…

    Impressive feat of strength James. I only recently got serious, about starting a very easy and short routine that only does swings and TGUs. I’m not strong yet. I also only have 12kg and 20kg KBs. I can barely even hold the 20kg KB in the prone beginning position. Its actually a bit embarrassing… but I’ll keep working on making slow and sustainable gains. (Haven’t watched the video yet, saved it to watch later…)

      I’ve seen more riders who can’t do a good TGU with a 20 kg KB than can do it so it don’t get too worried. We all start somewhere and I guarantee that after a few months of practice you’ll be much stronger with it and you’ll feel that difference on the trail.

    hi james i’ve worked up to the 12.5kg weight that you reccomend for women and am up to 10 reps, along with the other exercises in your free KB workout (month plan) what increments in weight would you recommend inceasing by?

      I recommend a 4 kg increase, so go from a 12 kg to a 16 kg KB. Bigger jumps in weight are harder to manage.

      BTW, I’d work up to 5 reps on each arm, switching arms each rep, on the TGU. It lends itself better to lower reps and switching sides each side.
