I'll see what I can do! There is no magic though; increase body temperature, mobilize joints and "activate" key movement patterns like pushing and pulling with the upper body and hip hinging. Progressively get more dynamic and explosive, increase CNS activity so run #1 and corner #1 finds you feeling coordinated and organsied! There's always an individual component to any off the bike Warm-Up, some riders have injuries to manage or specific issues, but more often than not it's Raise Temp, Activate and Mobilise the Muscular-Skeletal system and key movement patterns; drive motivation in the right direction and increase arousal (music maybe?) and then get on your bike and go shred! Sometimes the best warm-up is a soft pedal with some wheelies and turn-bars

Hey dude, for sure I think all pro riders put the bike down, some may pick up the motocross bike but most put the DH bike down for a few weeks, I've worked with riders who take a two to three month break after the last WC. Riding for fun is still 100% a big part of everything riders do; there's a lot less analysis in MTB than say Alpine skiing where you only get race quality tracks when "training" or racing. MTB is quite unique in that that fun element, the reason for doing what you do is there almost every week. It's partly the reason DH racers have such long careers compared to other sports!

Hey there! Thanks for the contribution. Always remember that a picture tells a one thousand words of a story that takes millions and what the photographer captured in the gym that day may not be representative or proportionate of what makes up the athlete's very individual program. What we were actually running through that day was some "in-season" strategies; helping the riders learn simple modifications to a program when there is a short turn around of 3-4 days between World Cups but we still want some strength stimulus. There was no "skullchrushers" but a variety of single and bi-lateral pressing exercises. Neither was their High knee holds, but farmer's carry's! Sure we squat, front and back, always high-bar. We trap-bar deadlift and regular deadlift, go heavy, fast, monitor velocity etc... If I told you the photo of Tahnée dead-lifting was Set 1, Warm-Up, would you care? Does it matter? Again a hand-full of photos doesn't give you much insight into how "informed" the athlete's are. It helps tell a story and paint a picture of what goes on for those interested...if we had photo of everything we do it would be a pretty heft article....even for Pinkbike. Thanks again for the contribution.
