TAKE YOUR BIKING TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Thanks Bike James for this great exercise to help improve your stand up pedal strength. The is a great single leg squat variation that really challenges the lower body in a unique way. The position of the legs is more similar to standing pedaling on your bike than a standard single leg squat but this variation is also very tough for most riders and hard to pull off at first. This leaves a lot of riders frustrated and giving up on this great exercise too early.
We need more ladies on the mountain - Let's go pink legs!!!
Of course you do!! So come out for some fun on March 9th for our Girls Mini Comp. Its all about the fun!! It's from 3-4pm, an hour of hanging with the girls!!
Connor is going to build us a super sweet, easy, small jump and all you have to do is ride over it!! Yeah if you go big you'll get the bragging rights of going big, however there are more prizes for turning up and giving it a go than anything else.
JUMPS - You don't need to know the technical terms for jumps to go over them but here is an article on snowboarding terms and what they mean, check it out and then you'll know what you are doing when you grab your board as you go over the jump:)
A quick post from James Wilson answering a question that I'm sure many of us have had!!
Overtraining is a funny thing - either you never have to worry about it because you are too lazy to work that hard (nothing wrong with that in some respects) or you seem to be in a constant battle with it as you try to balance your desire to do more and work harder with the reality that you can't physically handle everything you think you need to do. Some riders need a kick in the pants and some, like the rider in this Rider Q&A blog post, need to be told it is alright to back off a bit every now and then.
Girls riding like girls and being girls! This video put a smile on my face - rip it up!!
I recently received this email from James Wilson about the ability to recover efficiently during exercise efforts. Whether you are out on the trail or at the gym Your ability to recover between hard efforts is a vital skill that can be just as important as training your ability to work hard.
