Charles Dao of Evolution Fitness Elite Sports Science is a part of one of the most progressive training centers in the country. He partnered with John Louch and Matt Neel to create a training facility that could cater specifically to athletes (more specifically, action-sports athletes). With riders such as Josh Hill, Jay Marmont, Josh Hansen, Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg, and Ronnie Faisst already on the list of professional motorcycle riders who train there, Evolution Fitness in Murietta, California, is quickly becoming the premier facility to train in Southern California’s motocross hotbed.
In a regular addition to Racer X’s Virtual Trainer, Charles will break down exercises in sequence to show some of the things he is doing with the stars of the sport. These are all things that can be done in most gyms and will improve your fitness dramatically. So far we have covered the
Walking Lunge with Rotation
, the Squated Row on Bosu Ball
the Single Leg Cross-Over Reach
, and the
Medicine Ball Hip Toss on Stationary Bike
. This month's featured exercise is the Jab and Pull.
“The very first thing we do here at Evolution Training Elite Sports Science is a VO2 test on every individual. We have all of that equipment right here, and by utilizing that, we can determine exactly what your active recovery heart rate is and what your max heart rate is. This allows us to really break everything down to science instead of just guessing by the way each person feels that day. What this allows us to do is build a buffer zone so that you go out there you don’t hit your lactic threshold and just gas out. This exercise is a combination of core strengthening, upper-body strengthening, eye-hand coordination, and staying focused, as well as a high-intensity cardio workout at the same time. It’s a great combination of many aspects of what we are trying to train for.
That's it for now. Until next time, good luck with your training and, as always, VT can be reached anytime at
