Does resistance training fit into your priority list?
It didn’t for me, even as a professional athlete, which seems counterintuitive. Huh?
Truth is, I assumed riding “x” amount of hours a day (and being ignorant to fitness as a whole) was enough. I didn’t see the point in training and didn’t want to “get bulky”. Far from the truth. 🙈
I learned the hard way- blowing out my knee in 2013. Then I added my passion for brain health (came from being diagnosed with 4 brain tumors over the last 8 years) to the mix and hired a coach @coachmatthunter with @athleticlab.
The last 2 years working with Matt as my coach have been transformational in regards to my mind, body, and BMX performance.
This is a typical day in a training block, which is usually broken down into a few components spread over 5 days that goes for 3 weeks and ends with a testing week.
3 days of resistance training (strength/lifting), 2 days of HIIT (high intensity interval training), gymnastics & core, and then I add in 2hrs minimum of MAHR training (max Aerobic heart rate), which is intended for@peak fat oxidation (burning) to train my brain and body to burn and utilize fat (keton bodies) primarily for fuel and become what’s called “fat adapted” or “metabolically efficient”.
That said, I’ve been applying what I’ve been learning from Matt and leading voices in the fat-burning & brain Heath world to help my clients even further with their heath and wellness goals.
