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…

The Push-Up has to be one of the most poorly performed exercises there is. It looks simple. Bend your elbows, lower yourself down and push back up. What most people don't realize is that the Push-Up is more of a core exercise than really anything else. There are a few common mistakes with the Push-Up that can be fixed with one thing...…

I recorded a quicky podcast today with just myself. I had a question on my most recent blog article 3 Exercises For Beginners To Build Power that I thought I would go a little deeper in the answer than a blog post could go.     Check it out and feel free to discuss anything at all or ask questions for…

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…

Hi guys! Just a quick article and video this week. In the video I give you 4 different exercises you can do with one Superband.   Superband's are a great training tool because they're very versatile, cheap and easily transportable. If you're creative you can do a ton of things with a Superband. In this video I show you how to…

There are some exercises that are very deceiving.  Some look really easy but when you do them they are extremely difficult. Then there are exercises that look hard but are not that bad. The Birddog is somewhere in the middle. Since you start on all 4's (quadruped) this starts in a very easy and stable position. But as you extend…

As always it's been too long in between podcasts. It's difficult to get schedules to work out so I'm really happy that Brandon and I could sit down for over an hour and chat about racing and training. For those that don't know Brandon Brown. He was a regular on the A pro circuit a few years ago until school…

Core training is a weird thing. What's a core? Is it just your abs? Back? Or can we go as far to say the entire torso is the core? Then if we could answer those questions, we need to ask ourselves... How strong is strong enough?   I've done a ton of different things with myself and all of my…
