Motocross Fitness Training, Essential Tips To Get You In Peak Physical And Mental Condition. Part Twoo
These are my hints and tips for some Motocross Fitness training to get you into shape for your race. Please ensure you take care with any exercise program and you seek medical advice if you feel unwell. Motocross fitness is just as an essential part of the rider as the maintenance of the bike. So don?t waste time, get yourself in the right spirit for the race, because if you feel well and healthy then ultimately your racing will improve. It is not all about weight training and running. Its fine to have your body as fit as possible, but you should also concentrate on your mind.
These are my tips for the day of the race
? Arrive in plenty of time. If you arrive late you will start to panic and your mental state will suffer.
? Don?t eat too much food on the day; you don?t want to feel full while you are racing.
? Make sure you drink enough water to be hydrated, but again not to much. Needing to go to the toilet half way round will really knock your concentration.
? Get checked in and ensure you know what you are doing and when you are racing. If you are unsure then ask. Most clubs are more than happy to help you out.
? Check your bike over; mentally you will then know everything is ready.
? Walk the course and make notes of problem areas. This will help your mental state and will also loosen you up after the drive to the track.
? Do some gentle warm up exercises half an hour before the race. Don?t go mad, you are just trying to stretch your body a little so you don?t pull a muscle at the first jump.
? Ensure you at the start in plenty of time
? Try to enjoy the race. The more you enjoy the race, the more relaxed you will be and the better you will ride.
As you can see there is more to Motocross fitness than running round in circles. Positive and calm mental attitude will help you out as much as any strenuous Motocross fitness training programme.
