Plus you still get to ride with your mates and have fun! The Complete MTB Programme is designed to be achievable for normal people balancing work and family whilst improving their MTB fitness.

Why Should Mountain Bikers Do Strength Training?

Strength lets you ride to your maximum ability for longer.  It will help you hold a good position over rough terrain.  When you are strong you make the bike go where you want, instead of being a passenger.

Strong legs, core and back let you grind out the big miles, improving endurance and reducing or eliminating back pain and cramps. A strong upper body is like a ‘Get out of jail free card’ for when things get wild, where weak arms and shoulders collapse under your weight sending you out of control.

Most importantly though:  Being stronger will let you have more fun!

Why Should Mountain Bikers Do Interval Training?

Intervals are an efficient way to boost your fitness in a short amount of time.  They will let you climb faster, and if you are a racer, will help you develop that race fitness that will let you go 100% from start to finish. The best bit is that intervals can be easily added in to any normal MTB ride, so you can get them done without missing out on social or fun rides with your mates.

In The Complete MTB Programme the intervals build gradually through the year, with options for different fitness levels as well as options depending on how you feel on that day.

What The Programme Includes:

  • Each month you will get a new MTB specific strength programme.
  • Monthly, optional conditioning sessions to really boost your fitness for summer laps.
  • A bodyweight programme to use when travelling with work or family, so you can always train.
  • Video tutorials of all exercises.
  • A weekly interval training session to help take your fitness to the next level.
  • Weekly training tasks that you can incorporate into your normal rides if you like.
  • You simply fit as much or as little as you can into your weekly schedule.  No pressure, just work at your level and around your schedule.
  • Loads of extras like videos, articles, challenges and bonus features throughout the year to keep you stoked on bikes and training!…And as a bonus, you’ll also get a free copy of the MTB Mobility Programme (worth £16) to compliment your training.

All you need is access to a gym with barbells, dumbbells and some space for bodyweight training including a pull-up bar. Some months there may also be training using suspension trainers, kettlebells and cardio kit like the rowing machine, but all of these are optional and will have alternatives in case you don’t have access.

All of this costs just £32 per month and is covered by our money back guarantee, so if you are not totally satisfied with your programme then you get your money back. It’s simple and risk-free!

When you subscribe you will instantly be sent your programme and a free copy of the MTB Mobility Programme.

Frequently asked questions

  • I don’t have much experience in the gym. Can I still do the programme?  Yes, you can as long as you take your time and pay lots of attention to using proper form for all of the exercises using the video tutorials.
  • Is this programme suitable for men and women?  Absolutely!
  • What abilities is this suitable for?  As long as you are healthy and injury free you should be able to get a lot from this programme.   All training sessions are scaled for different abilities and levels of strength/fitness.  Sometimes there will be options for exercises to progress or regress to suit different abilities and there is always a set and rep range to choose from.
  • Will the Complete MTB Programme help me survive my riding holiday? No doubt! This is not just about racing.  Getting fitter and stronger will mean you enjoy your weekends in Wales, your week in Morzine or your dream trip to Whistler.
  • It is March (insert month) and I want to join now.  Can I start any time of year?  Yes, absolutely. You can join at any time of year. To help you get started and to build your fitness you will receive a bonus programme in the first month which we call the “Foundation Programme.”  It is designed to safely get you started with your training and to teach you some key skills.
  • I have a bad knee (insert body part).  Can I still use this programme? This is down to you and your doctor or physio.  We always play the long game and never train through pain.  You may be able to train around an injury though, working other body parts and maintaining some strength and fitness.
  • Is this plan suitable for racers? Yes! This will help any mountain bike racer. Whether you are getting ready for the ‘Ard Rock or a season of enduro racing, getting stronger and building a better ‘engine’ will help you to ride at your full potential.
  • I work long hours and have a busy schedule.  Will this work for me? The programme does not specify what to do when, although there is a suggested weekly planner. Some weeks work might allow you to get 2 strength sessions, some intervals and a weekend ride done. Other weeks maybe more, and some weeks it may only be some mobility and bodyweight training. Nothing is fixed. What The Complete MTB Programme does is make sure that when you do have time to train, that you will be doing the right exercises and training and not just wasting your valuable time.
  • Am I tied into a contract or minimum term? No contract or minimum term, simply cancel the subscription through Paypal before the next payment goes out and that’s it.
  • Can I get coaching to help me learn to lift safely?  Although we do provide video tutorials, getting some coaching is always helpful for ironing out your form. You can come to Bristol for 1-2-1 coaching or keep your eyes peeled for one of our workshops.
  • Is this suitable for under 18’s?  This is at the parents’ discretion but the programme is suitable for healthy youth and junior athletes training under the supervision of an adult.
