With the end of the riding season fast approaching, it is time to start thinking about your plans for this offseason’s training. How you ride and perform next season depends on what you do in the offseason, making it a critical part of the progress you hope to see year after year.

 

If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for the next episode, contact us at info@mountainbikeradio.com. We also have advertising opportunities available, just contact us. 

 

--------------------------------------------------------

 

Episode background:

 

While most riders would agree that an offseason training plan is important, few seem to have a really solid plan to help them achieve it. Sure, they may have some sort of plan which is better than nothing but most riders make some critical mistakes that really cost them down the road.

 

These mistakes include:

  1. Not making good use of periodization principles. Too many riders skip the Transition and General Physical Prep Phase which really hurts their ability to ride strong all season long. By focusing on flexibility, strength and cross-training for a while you allow your body to recover from the specific stresses of riding and build a stronger foundation to work from.
  2. Not making use of “inefficiency training”. Too many riders use methods of training that are actually more efficient than riding a mountain bike. By using less efficient methods like using smaller wheels, a heavier bike, less efficient suspension and *gasp* flat pedals you can force an even stronger adaptation from the body during cardio training.

In this new episode, James discusses the basic parts of a periodization plan and explains how these common mistakes hold you back and how you can avoid them. No matter what training program you plan on using this offseason, these tips will help you get the most out of it.
