MTB Challenge – Workout of the Week 2-2-20
Elliott Heap won the U21 Enduro World Series even before he took training seriously. Now he’s on the Fit4Racing Enduro Program he’s ready for the 2020 season and guaranteed to make waves. See if you can keep up with him on this MTB Challenge.
As always, safety is of the upmost importance. If you haven’t practiced any of the movements you see on our videos please make sure you are proficient and confident before attempting any workouts. Deadlifts are especially testing when performed under fatigue, if in doubt stay light.
What’s The Challenge?
The workout is a combination of airbike (can be Assault bike or Rogue Eco Bike) and Deadlifts at 60kg.
Simply set a timer for 1 minute intervals or running clock. On “go” complete 10 calories on the air bike and 1 deadlift, then rest for the remainder of that minute.
On the start of the second minute you will do 10 calories again on the bike but when you get off the deadlifts increase by 1 for a total of 2.
On minute 3, 10 calories and 3 deadlifts.
Continue in this format until you simply can’t go further.
What if I don’t have this equipment?
Don’t stress if you haven’t got this exact equipment. You can use a turbo trainer and set a high cadence for 20-30 seconds, then complete the deadlifts. If you don’t have a bar you can use dumbbells, kettlebells or even a band around your shoulders.
