Extreme Sports!

What an amazing weekend, the summer is truly upon us as the sun beams down onto our skin! Surely it is the best weather to play sport in, especially extreme sports!!! Back in the day (that makes me sound so old!) I used to race motocross and today I haven’t experienced anything which gives me such an intense shot of adrenaline. Maybe one day I will trade in the 6 pack for a seat back on 2 wheels?!

Well, maybe I don’t have to! The point is people don’t always respect extreme sports like motocross as a strenuous sport! However I would insist a 20 lap race around rough terrain, with a mouth full of gritty mud and enough bumps and ruts to give you an abs workout of a lifetime is indeed a very testing sport for any athlete! The rider’s cardiovascular system is tested to the maximum, yet the core muscles are also pushed to the limits as your body is always readjusting itself to the bumps and corners of the track. Grip is another very important factor in motocross because your forearms take a lot of punishment holding on for dear life for the entire race. What is the point in saying all of this?

If I had known what I know today in regards to nutrition and exercise I would have done a lot better I am sure! The reason being my energy levels used to dip considerably and sometimes I just felt worn out. Personally I believe because you are on a motored racing machine psychologically you feel the bike will do the work for you, as with any extreme sports. However, as sport progresses at a more rapid speed than ever it is easy to see athletes from all backgrounds are tapping into good nutrition and training plans. F1 drivers follow very strict diets and do a lot of altitude training to maximise their cardiovascular capacity as do a lot of other extreme athletes. This proves that training off the track, eating off the track and taking the right supplements is key to just about any athlete and that includes extreme athletes.

This is something I would like to really educate people on, and how taking care of other aspects of your life can really improve your performance on the track. Surely if you are fuelled with the right foods you will be able to cope with the strains of racing easier!? In regards to training, by strengthening your core and muscles I think that you will help decrease the chances of injury when you crash! Many times I have heard of people who have suffered serious accidents and their only saving grace was stronger than average muscles to hold everything into place!

With all of this being said we are going to do a 3 part ‘Extreme Sport Super Feature’ for athletes who part take in sports such as motocross, surfing, rallying, go-karting, downhill biking and so on! Stay tuned extremists!
