Anyone else have any good pre-season workouts?

Leg blasters are pretty awesome: https://youtu.be/1YM3OC4-Z1o

I think these and some running would set you up for a good start.

Also, Iv been trying to figure out how to run uphill but then not back down again? Any ideas besides carrying a bike?

It's bike specific from the current World Cross Country MTB champion...

I've been doing most of these in prep for cross season and have noticed a huge difference in core strength and balance. Guessing you'll reap the benefits on the slopes too.

There's a few good videos here. Nothing beats lunges, jump squats, and core work!

I always like the high altitude hikes with a decent size pack. I keep it simple.

Riding/pushing your bike to the top of peaks and ripping down is pretty fun. I got to ride Parkview and Farview this summer...pretty sweet.

I run a pile of miles each week. I've also begun rollerskiing to prepare for XC skiing on snow.

I train by slowly increasing my intake of PBR's and hot scotchlates...

Here is a program put out by Spark:

These are great thanks! I love how different the philosophies are.

So the ultimate workout is juggling during a hike with a heavy pack full of PBRs.

It's more like skipping uphill, balancing a ball on you nose, while keeping rhythm! Your pack doesn't have to be to heavy!

I just remove some most of the winter stuff from my pack. I use the same bag and do a lot of high country mtb'ing!







Just a touch of my offseason conditioning!
