Ok, I hope that title caught your eye. Before anyone riots, I don’t necessarily mean that. Well, maybe I kind of do. Uhh, let me explain.   Based on some recent social media interactions, there is a group of people that believe that we need to forget about performance and just have fun on our bikes. While this is a…

Last month I did a Facebook live talk on BMX training. I had several people ask questions and told me I should do another talk on sprint training. I started writing down ideas and points to cover just on sprint training. Before I knew it I had several pages of notes. I realized that I had way too much for…

I know not everyone is on Facebook. I honestly wish I could delete my app and never go back but it's so great for communicating with old friends, having political and religious debates, and sharing pictures of what I'm eating. ;)   No, but really, what it's great for is learning. I love the internet! When used properly, you can…

Out of all the different coaching methods... creating spacial constraints is possibly one of the best ways to teach a new movement or fix a suboptimal one. It's possibly even superior to verbal abuse and beating the kid with sticks. Those are coaching techniques that are reserved only for the most advanced BMX parent! ;) What do I mean by…

Since we were children we have heard that a warm up is one of those things that is necessary to perform optimally. When we were little we warmed up in gym class and sporting events. Warm ups commonly consisted of Jumping Jacks, Arm Circles, and lots, and lots, of running. When we started racing BMX, we didn’t have our gym…

Want a little inside scoop into my training? I'm about to show you a few things that not many trainers/coaches will show you. In this article, I'll give you some details on a block of training I did and some interesting and measurable results I got. Typically people assume bigger muscles from weight lifting must equal more speed on the…

If you have been reading the articles on my website and listening to the BMX Racing Podcast... you probably have noticed I don't put out content with extreme frequency. I've chosen to record podcasts when the mood hits me. I want to focus on providing thoughtful, interesting content and I have someone that I think is doing interesting things, and…

I thought I would give you a little update on the direction I'm taking sparkbmxtraing.com. You may have noticed that I have not been posting quite as frequently as last year. It was my objective to put out articles at least every other week last year. Some of the articles were really good and others were probably not quite so…

  I can't believe how many people reach out to me and ask questions about how to improve reaction time. Honestly, I didn't really know if you could actually improve reaction time, so I thought I should do a little research into this important topic. Before you read further, go ahead and take the test above and see what your…

No one wants to be the guy that posts his epic workout video on Instagram, only to have a bunch of people critique his technique. I'm totally guilty of rushing to judgment and adding a critique, particularly when I was just studying to be a personal trainer and thought I knew it all. I swear I try not to do…
