HIT Workout

by Racer X Virtual Trainer

I came across this TRX based video workout the other day and found it to be perfect for the pre and in-season phases of motocross. High intensity training is the key in these stages and this interval workout is based on 30-seconds of work and 30-seconds of rest. The routine consists of 5 exercises performed in  a circuit. Do 4 sets for a total of 20-minutes. Including warm-up and cool down, you should be done in under an hour.

Don't have a TRX or know how to use it specifically for MX? Check out this page!

If you are racing this weekend, this workout (because it is short and intense) is best done later in the week, preferably Wednesday or Thursday.

The Workout (Plus Alternative)

Pushup/Fly/Superman Combo Pushups on the floor while switching hand positions

That's it for now, until next time, good luck with your training and remember, if you have a question, log on to the Virtual Trainer Expert Forum and have your question answered by a panel of experts.
