Mountain Bikers’ Workout uses the unique training ability of CoolBoard to target key areas of your fitness. Keeping your ability progressing while helping you avoiding injury. Good for all abilities. If injury does occur many of the exercises are good rehabilitation. Designed by mountain bike training expert Adam Powell
Although a new piece of kit is an exciting way to enhance your mountain biking, getting your body and mind prepared will allow you to make dramatic improvements to your performance and enjoyment at any level.
Mountain biking demands a very dynamic level of fitness. Improving your aerobic fitness will undoubtedly improve your performance as will some strength training. But this is only half the story and the harder you ride the more strain you’ll put your body under.
Core strength and stability, stabilising muscles and proprioceptive system are all massively called upon when mountain biking. Every movement we make starts in our core. Our stabilising muscles support our joints when moving, maximising power and saving us from injury. Our proprioceptive system inherently knows how we should move to complete a task, maximize power and efficiency while avoiding injury.
