Mountain Bike Training
Mountain Bike Training an alternative to the normal boring training
Mountain Bike Training an alternative to jogging or gym? Getting fit and into shape normally brings up the image
of a gym or running. But getting into shape doesn't have to be boring and monotonous.
If you are one of those people who have a willing mind but a lacking body in getting yourself motivated to do
exercise whether you're thinking of a run in between weekend Party Poker tournaments, or you're thinking of taking up rock-climbing but never get round to
actually organising anything, then maybe a mountain bike training program is what you need. Mountain biking is a
fun activity that the whole family can get involved in. Mountain biking is fun because it gets you outdoors, it
also allows you to socialize with family or friends and lets face it quality time with family and friends isn't
always easy today.
The first thing you need to do is to get a bike if you don't already have one. A tip is always try and get
the best components for your buck. If if you mix and match. Also decide on what sort of training you want to do, if
you are going to stay on easy trails and mostly flat surfaces, suspension and brakes doesn't have to break the
bank. If you are going to go for steep climbs, rocky or muddy terrain you will have to spend more money on those
items. Safety gear is also import, make sure you buy proper head protection, the best you can afford. Knee and
elbow protection is also nice to have, not a necessity but highly recommended.
Once you have the bike sorted out you can start looking at the trails. Start off with easy terrain, you can
always go to something more challenging, don't try to overdo it when you just start off.
Once you are into it get yourself a mountain bike training program or put one together yourself, this will
enable you to keep track of your progress.
The main thing to remember is to have fun and enjoy your mountain biking.
