With our busy lives we just don't have time for super long and drawn out workout sessions in the gym. At certain times of the year our BMX training is more gym heavy, but during the season, sometimes a quickie is all you have time for. Remember that scene in the movie Something About Mary? 7 Minute Abs?! If you…

These are two of my favorite exercises for anyone... especially athletes. If you ask many fitness professionals where we need more mobility they would probably say hips and Thoracic Spine. I would also say, the older we get, the more we should be working on those two areas every day. The other thing we need to emphasize as we age…

Hey everyone, I've been on vacation this past week so no new training articles but expect some new stuff next week! A couple from my gym travels to Mexico each year to build houses for families in poor neighborhoods. After Mexico I planned to spend a few days in LA with a friend. This is just some of the things I…

I was stoked when I had someone I've looked up to for a few years ask me to be on his podcast.  I was interviewed by James Wilson of BikeJames.com *Download the podcast below or check out BMX Racing Podcast on Stitcher or iTunes apps* He's a sometimes controversial MTB coach that happens to have a little different viewpoint on…

Many of my articles have a strong emphasis on control, strength, good movement, mobility, etc. But for us BMXers, the one thing that really matters is POWER! Hell yeah!!! There's a reason I write about building that other stuff before I write about building power... You need that stuff first. To really maximize power, you need a stable core to…

For BMX, strong and mobile shoulders are essential. Try holding onto your handlebars without your shoulders... see how important they are?! Just kidding, but really they are what connect the arms to the "core". Without that solid connection you will be lacking power. Strength in the shoulder is also really important when it comes to remaining healthy when you crash.…

Before I dive into this article I just wanted to say that this isn't a clipless vs. flat pedals debate. I want to make it clear that this is more about if you or your child has earned the right to try out clipless pedals, not which will be faster. In the BMX world, the clipless pedal topic is on par…
