 Best training tip while in lockdown: go ride your local trails

 All well and good to say this but many people don't live within a distance they can travel to in the UK where it is "essential travel only" and some European countries right now only allow 1km from your house to do anything at all. This advice is for those who can't ride and want to keep hold of some fitness/ability and those who want to mix up their approach to improving their riding.

 @fit4racing: Definitely going include the isometric ski sit in my training, I do plenty squats (low and high rep) in training but always get tired on longer descents, I think it’s because the range of motion when riding gives zero time for rest, so fatigue just builds quickly, despite being reasonably strong in the gym.

 Wait, you're not using lockdown as an excuse to drink beer and play videogames?

 But you've got to train to make it look like all you did was drink beer and play video games when get back out into civilisation. Just 45 minutes a day should do it.

 Honestly since covid, it's amazing how much beer I've drank. Never used to even enjoy it before but I love a good ipa these days. But I just want normal life back lol. Luckily got trails right behind my house. Nothing like a couple beers then some sick riding, plus it makes the cold go away haha!

 I love these videos. Kettle bells, body weight stuff, functional training. With shut downs and minimal gym time this info could save you bacon...or save you from being as fatty as the bacon.

 Train yourself to wear a mask and socially distance. American can't live in Covid denial any longer. The conspiracy you should all be looking at is why Trump and his administration decided on herd immunity in January and let the virus run free.

 He didn't even have an evil plan. I would give him some respect he did. He only cares about himself (and so do 70 million other Americans). Fight me, 70M.

 @suspended-flesh: the majority of these dimwits are treating ChinaFlu in the same a redhead person treats the Sun. Maybe if you hide long enough you can prevent it but eventually you will go out and get burnt.

 Awesome tips, been following the channel for a while and never felt fitter on the bike, less back pain after long days and big climbs have been a massive boost too.

 Great content! Whether you can get out and ride now or not, if you aren't combining strength training with your riding you are shorting yourself big time. I don't understand why so many people here are against it. Why not make your riding and your life better by training a little?
