Best Motocross Training
Every motocross rider, from the beginner to the seasoned competitor, wants to improve their skills, gain more enjoyment from riding, and achieve better performance. The Gary Semics Motocross School has been helping riders of all skill levels improve since 1985. Proven time after time, Gary Semics’ motocross training methods get the best results.
Motocross is one of the most physically demanding sports on the planet! To ride good, have fun and stay safe your physical fitness is a primary key. During a race or even during practice sessions a motocross racer’s heart rate (HR) will max out. Their average HR will be at about 90% of max during a 15 minute or longer moto. Just by lining up on the starting gate most riders will be at about 75% of their max HR. In light of these facts it’s easy to understand that motocross is an extremely physical and demanding sport.
All sports have different training methods. This is known as “Sports Specific Training”. Motocross is one of the sports where this is the most complicated because motocross uses all the muscles of your body at the same time constantly. Not only do all your muscles get worked at the same time but they also get worked both aerobically and anaerobically, meaning both cardio and strength is needed. There’s a fine line in the way these two forms of exercise need to be done in order to get the best benefits on the mx bike.
