Any racing exercises?

Just wondering,

I will be joining NESBA next year, and my type personality is all or nothing type. So when I do something I go all out. I like working out but are there certain things I should work on if I will be racing? I can not think of any for this sport. Just wondering if any of you track people work on certain things that help you on the track?

Thanks
Andrew

Very good question Andrew. I would suggest concentrating on 12 oz. curls, nitro mixing. I would highly recommend a personal trainer like mopar or kegger. That is all.

For me, it was always lower back stretches and ab work - Then again, it has been over 5 yrs since I was last on a track

3.5 years in advanced did almost every weekend that i went.

here is my tip.

Friday night!

SEX, and lots of it!

sex gets you loose,relaxed and i am not talking about 1 or 3 positions! go through 101 positions baby!

work that body and her body. lift her up, push her down, doggie style and ROCK your hips like a fucken Elvis impersonator! "lower hips and legs!

stand up 69 "great for the back!

stand up muff diving "great for abs and biceps"

just do everything you can think of, and your body will be a race ready machine!

REPEAT on saturday night for sundays track day

Pros love the road bicycle training. Nearly all of them do it for a majority of their workout. Improves leg strengh and stamina, cardio and leans out the body. Plus it's fun.

I have a weak back and must always be doing lower back stretches and ab work.
