New Mountain Bike DB Combos Drill of the Month

Here is the newest DB combo drill. It is a little more complex than some of my previous ones but I don’t make any excuses for it. If you have used my combo drills in the past then you have the skills needed, you just need to apply them in a different way…

    Excellent video again James. Just what I was looking for, my current ladders were just starting to get too easy and I was looking to change things up. This one will be in my routine tonight.

    I’ll try not to leave a dent in the gym floor from missing a handover. Sure it’ll make things interesting though!

    Is there a proper technique for breathing while riding? It seems like I’m about to yack up a lung on climbs, is this common or am I missing something?

      No real advice there, although I am sure that learning breathing techniques such as thosse used in martial arts could help.

      The main thing is building your anaerobic strength endurance. It sounds like you just redline so quickly on hills that you can not keep your heart rate down. Nothing to do there but some combio drills and intervals. Looks like you are in the right spot to find out more about those.

    Really comprehensive tips. I’ve been taking your previous tips on board and my downhilling control has really improved. I can drive the bike much hard through rough sections and bars are always stable on sketchy landings.

    Hey James,

    I’m just wondering, should you stop in between rounds like you did in the video or keep going for the full 5 minutes?
    And if you are meant to stop, for how long?

      No, keep going for the full 5 minutes, I was just showing what one round looks like.
