This week's episode of the Racer X Virtual Trainer podcast show features James Stewart's trainer, Aldon Baker.

Aldon has trained top athletes in motocross, off-road racing, and even NASCAR. Of course in motocross, Aldon handles the career of the sports' top (and currently injured) rider, James Stewart. Injuries are common in MX but injuries that sideline an athlete for an entire series are particularly difficult from a training point of view. James has all sorts of things to keep him busy including a new reality TV show and enough money to fund the habits of even the most intense playboy. Aldon talks about how the Stewart camp handles these distractions and how he handles the job of keeping James focused and ready to race once the wrist is healed and play time is over.

Please visit our sponsors, Concept2 rowing and Fitness Anywhere, makers of the TRX suspension trainer because without them, there would be no Virtual Trainer website let alone a podcast show.

    I'd love to read here an article about training and nutrition for thin guys like me!

    Anderson - Not sure what you mean by "thin guys like me". Training for a guy like you is no different than a other guys. It is all about determining your weaknesses and developing a program to target those weak areas. Post this over on the Forum and let's start a little discussion over there.

    The navicular bone is in the foot. Aldon and the interviewer are discussing the navicular bone as being a carpal bone (wrist bone). Was it possibly the scaphoid due to them discussing the importance of proper healing due to possibility of necrosis if blood flow not being sufficient?

    The navicular bone is in both the foot and wrist. In this case, we were talking about the wrist.

    The term navicular bone or hand navicular bone was formerly used for the scaphoid bone, one of the carpal bones of the wrist.
