The perfect summer training program for every athlete who wants to stay fit during the summer break or become better at their sport. It focus on explosive strength of full muscle patterns or nerve pathways. It will make you faster, stronger and more explosive. And even gives you a decent cardio workout as well.
Perfect for footballers, soccor players, tennis, kiteboarding, wakeboard etc...
A dare you to do it
- sumo squat millitary
- drop down step over pushup
- explosive roll out
- horizontal row
- decline TRX push up (legs above head)
- TRX one arm muscle up
- reverse jack knife with weight
- one leg death lift with kettle bell
Do each exercise 20sec with high intensity and then rest for 20sec. Do 1 complete circuits (all exercises) and then take a 1 minut break. Do 4 circuits in total. If you want it tougher, then only do 10sec breakes.
The best way to become fit for a sport is not by the sport. Look at all pro athletes. They all (except for kiteboarders and other low budget sports), they all do training like mine. Functional training to enhance the muscle chains or nerve paths they need in their sport.
So no, mtb is not the best way to become more fit for kiteboarding. It is good. Just like football would be good. But not the best way... And going to the gym to get bulked up is also not the best way... My training won't make you a hulk in appearence. Only in explosive strength and endurence. And that is what you need...
Din't think you can kiteboard at 100% for hours on end. Take a break after 1-2 hours. Carb up (eat bananas or some other healthy food with carbs) and fo out again. That will give you energy and it's good for your health.
And remember to let your recover. The injuries we've seen from the pros lately would in other sports be referred to as lack of recovery. In koteboarding it's "just bad luck" or "the aggressive riding". But in the end lack of recovery really really adds to the risk of injury. Don't go kiteboarding every day...!
