Workout ideas

Am looking for some ideas to implement in training. Specifically to help keep my body from lunging forward during hard braking. The obvious is to just squeeze the tank harder. Usually i just slide forwards anyways and the weight goes to my hands. Is there a workout to help with this or is this something more grip tape/gripper seat related?

Try heavy front squats if you have the wrist mobility. It incorporates your core and the tendency to fall forward is gonna happen if you don't use the right technique.

Get a trx and a stability ball. There's some weird ass shit these women do that will work. Bonus, go to some free classes. They all wear yoga pants

This. Your ass should be off the seat under braking. First so that you can soak up the braking bumps. Second so that you use your quads to help fight the forward momentum of your body. Otherwise you're only using your arms.

I bought some of that stomp pad stuff and put it on the side on my bike but it's peeled off over time. It's the shit when it's brand new though.

Workout harder, not smarter.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.

Get on the Concept 2 rower and strengthen your ams/chest/quads/calfs in one machine.

Stand up in attack position more while braking and also you need to squeeze the frame with your ankles/calfs while standing (your knees while sitting). You shouldn't be flying forward under braking.

That or buy a thigh master and go to town.

Might be in your suspension too. Too soft front spring or soft compression setting could be making your bike dive in the front under braking.

Thigh and core strength are the two areas you might want to focus on.

I do cross fit for strength and squash for fitness (fast response muscles required) ...I normally do cross fit during my off season and squash during as cross fit builds muscle.... squash (along side court sprints, fast situps, fast pressups, etc) adds muscle response as well as cardio

I'm thinking this is a technique issue rather than a strength issue, but I could be wrong. Your weight needs to be back under braking, kind of like being in the "ready position" they teach in baseball to kids. This will help keep the bike stable and track through ruts, as well as allow you to sit down and put weigh on the bike as you stick your leg out in the apex of the turn. You realistically should be standing up all the way through the turn, until you plan on getting back on the gas and sticking your foot out mid corner. This could be for 50% of the turn, 25% of the turn, etc, just depends on the shape and the rut.

Good info. From everyone. Tons of stuff to try this week in the gym and at the track this weekend.

If you're not incorporating a sick Guido-Pump at least 6 days a week, don't even talk to me Bro.

My girlfriend cured her arm pump with these shake weights.

Now to figure out why she can argue for hours but when she gives head her mouth gets tired after 5 mins.

I enjoy doing full body workouts 3-4 times per week. I am currently following a summer football workout from a school in the SEC. It incorporates many Olympic style lifts to maximize functional strength and explosive power. The workout calls for sprinting on Tuesdays/Thursdays and Saturday/Sunday as rest days.
