Mountain biking is an exhilarating sport that requires strength, endurance, mobility, bike handling skills, technical knowledge in relation to off-road and trail riding techniques, and much more. Whether you’re riding professionally or for fun, you should consider supplementing your riding with strength and mobility training – it’ll enable you to ride faster for longer and will make your body more resilient to injury. Over the next couple of paragraphs I’ll outline a number of exercises you should definitely include within your strength training programme.
Weight Loss Tip # 5: The Metabolic Cost of the Exercise and Workout is Everything.
Now’s the time of year when you start to set yourself lots of goals; I’ve got loads – I want to get stronger, fitter and compete in lots of competitions – it’s going to be a big year! But it always frustrates me when I see people going about achieving their goals in a manner that isn’t optimal. General health and wellbeing is one goal we should all aspire to reach – adhere to the guidelines as set out below and you’ll be sure to get there!
Resistance training (weight training) is a crucial component to any fat loss programme. An intense session will cause your metabolism to rise both in the short term and long term meaning you will burn more total calories; it will also result in an improved body composition (tone) by simultaneously burning fat and building muscle.
Hi Everyone, Firstly just want to say hello and that you will be hearing more from me! I have been training for over 12 years now and have found in this time that I will always; 1. Improve, in my case get leaner and more muscular, 2. Plateau or reach a point of no change, 3. Take steps back i.e., get smaller, less defined, lose strength. (In the above order)
The perfect workout leaves you feeling positive, energised and gagging to get back in the gym for the next session. The perfect workout must have a purpose 90% of the time; it must address your limitations (short, tight muscles, for example) and consist of intelligent programming to move you towards your short, medium and long term goals. The perfect workout is safe, effective and enjoyable. For the other 10% of the time, do whatever you like – if you’re feeling a tad tired or run down, and don’t feel you can maintain your usual exercise intensity, take it easy! If you’ve been training in a specific way for while and it’s getting a bit stale, do something different! The perfect workout isn’t set in stone; if you listen to what your body’s telling you, you’ll feel much better after a workout, you’ll reach your goals in less time, you’ll avoid burning out and you’ll stay injury free! So, for 90% of the time, what does the perfect workout consist of?
Hey, Incorporating complexes into your training routine is an excellent way to build fitness and burn fat in record time. They take a short amount of time to complete and use a relatively light weight, but don’t be fooled – they’re really tough! I’ve had great success incorporating complexes into my own routine and those of my personal training clients in and around Stroud!
Full-body or total-body training is the best way for the majority of the population to train – be it for strength, weight loss or hypertrophy (muscle size). I’m not ruling out split or body-part training at all – it has its place – it’s just a lot of the stuff you see people doing in the gym has filtered down from pro bodybuilding routines – this is because people automatically assume that the person with the best physique knows the most about training and what’s best for them. Professional bodybuilders get paid a lot of money to train for hours and hours each day, and do a great job; but what’s right for them is not necessarily right for me or you.
