Get Up Faster

To mountain-bike uphill faster, edge forward in the saddle to
distribute your weight more evenly between the front and rear
wheels. If you slip back too far, you'll cause the front wheel to
skitter off the ground. If you lean too far forward, you'll lose
traction on the back tire.

Have a great weekend!

Build Sprint Muscles

To sprint faster, work your hamstrings. They help you push off
and develop speed. Try this variation of the leg curl: Pull the weight
toward you with your ankles flexed (as you normally would) so that
your toes are pointing toward your shins. But when you lower the
weight, extend your ankles so that your toes are pointing away from
your shins. Your hamstrings will work harder than with the traditional version of the exercise.

Stay Healthy

If you're not exercising at all, just try to fit in two 20-minute
aerobic or weight-training sessions a week. Researchers at
Oklahoma State University examined absentee records of 79,000
workers at 250 sites and found that those who did this minimal
amount of exercise had fewer sick days than those who didn't exercise at all.

Isolate Your Abs

When you do reverse crunches and hanging knee raises,
round your back by rolling your hips and pelvis toward
your chest, instead of simply raising your legs. Otherwise,
you're mainly working your hip flexors—the muscles at the top of your thighs.

Go Light, Get Strong

Lift light weights fast to build strength. Your muscles will generate
as much force as if you were lifting a heavier weight more slowly.
Try it with the bench press: Use a weight that's 40 to 60 percent of
what you can lift one time, and do eight sets of three repetitions,
pushing the weight up as fast as possible. Rest 30 seconds between sets.

    would you come down fast also or would you go at your normal decending speed. I bring the weights down slow.
