I enjoy riding more techinical stuff than long grassy cross country. The technical element takes my mind off the pain in my lungs and legs :)

First Ride: 2022 Specialized Kenevo SL - The Electric Enduro
@jaame: dude, just because you can't afford it doesn't mean others can't enjoy it. You do your thing, they'll do theirs, if you look at it like that, it saves you getting your knickers in a twist. That said - You are entitled to your opinion.

Video: Lower Body Fitness Fundamentals for Safe & Effective Training
@Ososmash: functionally specific isn't a buzzword, it means whatever applies to the function you are trying to improve. Bench press is functionally specific to a power lifter, but not to an octogenarian. How is a squat not functionally specific to cycling? Not all true beginners have no idea what a hinge is - it's impossible to say that (like saying there are no black swans - you can't prove that until you find a black swan), they probably just don't know it's called that.

@fit4racing: ok, I just prefer to give people functionally specific exercises. I can't see the crossover between lying on my back and standing on my feet. Conscious versus subconscious recruitment of muscle. Remember bones move, joints feel, muscles react.

Can't help but feel that the bridge in the first exercise is not what it's cracked up to be. When riding bikes it is undesirable to be on your back! There's only a small bang for your buck in strengthening your hip extension in the sagittal plane when you're lying on your back, because the hip extensors have to decelerate both top down (upper body rotating forward towards the bars) and bottom up (posterior rotation of the thigh bone -knees coming up toward body). Consider with this in mind, that half of ones weight is in the top half, and you can see that this bridge exercise leaves beginners with only half the neuro muscular stimulation and adaptation. Better to practice the hinge and squat shapes which feel a lot more like standing on pedals.

Review: Canyon Sender vs Specialized Demo vs Cube Two15 vs Commencal Supreme - DH Bike Week
"The ensuing grin plastered on your face, without a doubt, lasting longer than any down country offering could provide from the constant sketchy moments at walking pace." Best bit of biking journalism I've seen this year :-D

Reader Story: 16-Year-Old Attempts to Climb 55,000 Vertical Meters in a Month
@benforshaw: ha ha, yeah I've been trying to ride 10000m of vert every month and that's with an ebike! As I say, what you accomplished is not for the 99.9% you are a special person and I what I find the most amazing is that I think you've been so committed and at such a young age. You've got control of life and most importantly you've got control of your mind. Big things await you Sir! David Goggins would be proud!

First thing I want to say is Respect! I'm pretty sure that your accomplishment puts you in the 1% club along with Olympians and ultra endurance athletes! You'll get into whichever university or job you apply for with that in your CV! And the fact that only 15 people have commented is a reflection on them not on your accomplishment! Reading about what you've achieved likely makes people think about how they're not achieving their goals, and the ego is there to protect us - not expose us to disappointment or frustration about our own lives. Hold your head up high, you've done what 99.9% of people only dismiss as impossible.

When brits go abroad and try to pronounce the place names but in their broad local accents - in an attempt to sound sophisticated - it makes me smile. But he can ride the shit out of a bike - brraaaapp!
