Do your regular weight training in the off-season with whatever cardio you like on non-weight days. Mountain biking was the best thing for me when possible.

I pay cash for new bikes. I tend to always look for and buy a left over from the year before that dealerships are just wanting to get rid of. Takes some patience, and a lot of looking around, but a good way to save a couple grand. Got my husky FX450 ... more »
