What is the 12 Week Programme? The 12 Week Mountain Bike Training Programme is the first eagerly awaited training plan for mountain bikers, who want to be fitter, faster and stronger on the mountain bike.
Since starting the MTB Fitness page on Facebook in 2016, it has grown from 0 to over 23,500 followers. The one thing I, Matt Mooney - owner of MTB Fitness, am CONSTANTLY asked, is how to train for mountain biking. What exercises should you do? Is there a way to get stronger on the climbs? Is there anything you can do at home in a short space of time? How should you structure your week to get the most from your training and riding? What intervals should you do?
This programme is the answer to those, and many more questions. It took over 12 months and hundreds of hours to build. I could have brought out a rushed plan, scribbled together within a couple of weeks, but I wanted to get it right. I wanted to produce a high-quality programme at a good price, that will get you fantastic results on the bike, and deliver 10-20x the value of what you paid for it. With this programme I believe I deliver on that...
In the programme I show you :
The very best mountain bike specific training plans, with HD videos demonstrating each exercise. These mean you can get fitter and stronger for all aspects of mountain biking, whether it's the climbs, the descents or anything in between. You have 2-3 plans to follow each week. These are updated every 2 weeks, so as you get fitter, the plans get harder. You can choose between separate plans for training at home OR in the gym - whichever you prefer.
Structured and specific interval sessions for you to complete every week. These interval plans detail the exact speed, resistance, rest and work time of each interval, taking away all the guesswork and guaranteeing you the best results in the shortest space of time. You can complete these either on a static gym bike, turbo trainer or outside on a 'real' bike. These work all the different aspects of fitness required for mountain biking, from the short, sharp sprints to the long, lung-busting climbs.
Mountain-biker-specific daily stretches that will help correct your 'riders posture'. Mountain bikers aren't known for their great posture. We spend hours hunched over the bike. This is compounded by more time spent in the car, at a desk or sat watching TV. Poor posture can leave you open to injury, and also limit your movement and ability to transfer power to the bike. The programme contains daily stretches that take 5-10 minutes to complete. These target the areas that are tight in most mountain bikers to help you reduce injury, move better on the bike and feel much more flexible.
The best ways to ensure you are recovering properly between your rides and workouts. Training is only part of the process, you need to recover properly after your sessions and rides too. I show you how to maximise your recovery, meaning you always feel ready to ride, and highlight the signs of poor-recovery.
