If you race BMX, or have been in the gym - you will probably enjoy these 30 pictures.
For most of us when we think about gym programs for BMX we think, "lift a ton of weight and you'll go faster." However, as nice as lifting a ton of weight is, it doesn't always mean that you'll go faster, especially in the long run. A simple google search will reward you with many articles published by great coaches in several power and speed sports that speak about the negative effects a heavy squat can have on performance.
It amazes me every time I talk to a high level BMX athlete about their BMX training and I find out that they are doing most, if not all of their BMX training with no kind of feedback. We have athletes who have been to the Olympics and won medals but never timed a sprint session, worked with a power meter, drawn blood to monitor their bodies etc. Don't get me wrong, the ones who have done that certainly prove that winning can be done without it. I am a absolute proponent of K.I.S.S (Keep It Simple Stupid) but there seems to be this stigma floating around BMX that technology only confuses training and if you use it, you are voiding the simplistic ideas.
