Warm Up Drill for a Workout or Mountain Biking

Here is a new warm up drill I’ve been using in my facility. This is a great way to warm up for a workout or for a mountain bike ride. You can click on the link below the video payer to go to the source page at where you can download the IPod compatible video.

    I really appreciate the “intensity” of this video… it motivates me. It would help me if you created separate versions from the slower-by-necessity instructional videos that are just a quickly paced talk-through/motivational series of the workouts from your programs (accessible to members).

    Sometimes, I just don’t have it in me to train alone without this kind of virtual coaching. Even going to a gym is not the same, because people there either aimlessly lift or have another routine entirely and there is no social component to inspire me.

    couls this routine be used instead of the mobility routine described in the MTB strength program?
    This seem simpler and less complex.

    best regards

      Yeah, you could substitute it. It isn’t as complete but hits all the major areas and is a bit more concise.

    I’m a little worried about the ”overhead shoulder disclocation” exercise.
    having had both shoulders dislocated (not at the same time) and feeling the pain that cme with it, I’m not sure ther is no danger associated with this hyper extension.
    Furthermore, I just can’t get the bar passed my head toward my back.

    Could you either give a replacement exercise and/or some further information regarding the benefits of this particular movement.

    Many thanks and happy new year!

      The “dislocation” part of the name is not a real description of what happens, your shoulder won’t actually dislocate. The truth is that is a movement that your shoulder should be able to do so instead of shying away from it you should be trying to figure out how to do it. I’d suggest using a light piece of rubber tubing as it will allow a bit more freedom of movement and should allow you to just start doing the movement on some level. Hope this helps…
