TRAIN WITH US
What better way to prepare for the Sturdy Dirty Enduro than with friends? Check out our free training plan and join the training group we’re hosting this April through our race in October!
Want to shrug off the Covid blues? Build your fitness? Come back stronger from an injury or having a baby? Advance your biking abilities? This will be a supportive environment to do all of the above. The goal is to build fitness and biking knowledge so everyone’s ready to have a fun and enjoyable Sturdy Dirty race. #limitsbedamned!
Time frame: April 5, 2021 through October 9, 2021 (race day)
April & May – base fitness training
June thru September – building to race day
Training pattern: follows 3 weeks “on” to build fitness, then 1 week “off” for recovery (when workouts are typically lighter).
Workout types: each week, there will be
2 strength workouts
2 bike/cardio workouts
1 option for additional strength & bike workout
1 rest day
Customize it: Ramp things up or down. Add in optional workouts or extra days on the bike. Train with a heart rate monitor, if that’s your jam. Use the detailed ride & strength plans we provide or simplify them to suit you.
Group rides: We’ll host training group rides roughly every other week – come ride!
Virtual Group sessions: We will periodically hold hour-long remote group bonus sessions, whether exercise (a workout or yoga), or a discussion session (e.g. nutrition, bike setup, etc.).
Tools: You don’t need much more than your mountain bike to get started. Weights would be helpful (dumb bells, kettlebell), but you can substitute kids, dogs or filled milk jugs, etc. as well. A trainer or indoor bike is also helpful, but not necessary or a deterrent to training with us!
Cost: It’s the best price – FREE.
