Today I break down how the science is in on strength training improving your endurance for mountain biking.  I talk about the basic principles of maximal strength training and how to prep for it by using a general strength conditioning phase. Also, the 2017 19th Shenandoah Mountain 100 was announced and I talk about that. 

Here's a link for Training for the New Alpinism at Patagonia's web site. Amazon has it too.

This was about my 30th episode--I think i was just beginning to really figure out the pace and sound stuff. I think I ranted after a ride on one of the rails to trails paths nearby about some roadies doing, well, roadie shit. And I guess I gave some advice on climbing. Enjoy and I should be back live next week!

Today I break down a remarkable advancement in our knowledge of how people respond to exercise differently, how you may be affected by it, and what you can do about it!  I also rant about trail etiquette and stake my claim as the "NPR of MountainBiking".

One of the biggest challenges you can face starting out mountain biking is how to eat to sustain energy on big days out.  Mountain biking is a high output, high strength effort, and nutrition is a huge issue that can make a day a big success or a painful lesson. I relate my own experiences and tips gleaned from the past years of epic days in the backcountry.

James Wilson joins me from Grand Junction Colorado, where he's pioneered an innovative new design: the Catalyst Pedal. His company is Pedaling Innovations. We talk generally about flat pedal myths, benefits, and then get into the Catalyst Pedal he's designed. Full disclosure, James sent me a free pair of these to try out. After 40 miles on the trails, I'm a big fan, and plan on riding them full time this year.
