When I first started training athletes using HIT there was very little information on the Internet about it. These articles are not meant to be for every body, they are for a few people that are interested in the area of fitness. Very few people understand HIT even today, most people think doing more exercise and going for longer periods of time are the way to train. I have posted some articles about training below they are not what most people would expect. I do not agree with every thing that every article states, but if you want to understand how to get stronger or faster, these articles will give you a basic understanding of what to do. Most trainers have never trained athletes using HIT and have no understanding of it, they believe it is impossible to train for such short periods of time and so seldom and see big gains, they are wrong. I hope you enjoy these articles. If some of them are listed twice, I am sorry!

I do coach a number of riders that ride Desalvo bikes, my son is the only trials rider that I coach, but I coach a pro cross country rider that rides a DeSalvo.

My son and I have done demos in your area before.

Jeremy just got back yesterday, from a 9 day trip to Mexico, he left again today, he will be going to europe and then some demos in Washington, he will be back sometime after the 20th of April. He is very busy, and seldom home, but feel free to call anytime, if he is home I am sure he will ride with you our number is 541-846-9494.

Anyone is welcome to call him anytime, but I must warn you he is not home very much. I think this is his ninth trip already this year.

But he loves to ride with guys when ever he can and loves to talk to anyone about trials.

Okay, I have tried this again, but I did not do as many articles, let me know if these links work. If possible if it does work can we get rid of the first bunch??? Can the moderator take them down and put this one up instead?

I do want to make sure you guys know that this system of training works and it works well with athletes from many different types of sport, many of you may know I train my son Jeremy (currently the North American Champion), but most people do not know that I train many other athletes from many different sports, including pro mountain bike racers and over this winter I have done work with several of the fastest, Human power vehicle racers in the US. They are in the top 5 in their sport. Training through the winter has left them in the best shape they have ever been in…even better than during their peak last summer; we can hardly wait for their racing season. These guys hit incredible speeds and this type of racing hold all the speed records, such as going 81 miles an hour with out drafting and going 51 miles in just an hour on a track with no drafting.

The point is I have trained athletes using many different techniques, and these are techniques that I have found to be the most effective and safest. I hope you can learn something from these general articles. Most important remember, you will become the best trials rider by focusing your time on good productive riding. In everything quality of the time spent is more important than reducing the quality and going longer.

Training people is what I do and I love to do it!

If, you want ballistic type training, and plyometrics, and like to spend more time in the gym, some one like Stu can help you with that kind of information. From the past I know that is what he believes is the best type of training.

Dont get me wrong, Super slow, HIT n similar training methods are good but dont hype it up too much.
After all you can only get as good as your genetic potential allows it.

Take me for example. I could train my body with the best personal trainers, best food, recovery time, sleep, bla bla... still, i would never be as good as a average trained athlete with the right genes. I just dont have the potential

Im not saying your wrong, just dont hype it up that much, your talking like HIT transforms everybody into Hulk overnight.

Where excactly did he say you could turn to hulk over night. He did not say it was a miracle.

I think your comprehension skills need a little work more than your fitness. Which I also doubt is any good either.

You make a very good point. You are 100% right, it is your genes that determine how far you can go, but I have also found that 100% of the people I train, do better on HIT type training than on any other program they have ever done. In other words genes determine your upper limits, but if you don't train right you will never know what those upper limits are.

The bottom line is to seem improvement you need to stress your body above it's limits, and then allow lots of rest so your body can rebuild the damaged area and the even build it stronger. Many programs do not stress your body enough and even more programs do not allow enough time to rebuild and grow stronger. This takes time, HIT and Superslow are based on doing both of these things.

However there are other systems out there that do build strength well too! I have found most of those systems to be much more dangerous to the lifter and time consuming, and some of them promote the use of drugs to encourage recovery.

Another problem I find with most programs, is their failure to allow enough time for practicing actual skills...NOTHING will improve MOST peoples more than actual practice. With many strength building and endurance building programs, by the time you are done doing every thing they want you to do, you would be too tired to ride! You might be in great shape, but is that your only goal?

But like I also stated, if you know a better way of training, one that is working for you, stick with it, and if you want to know more about Stu's training methods talk to him about them.

I am a firm believer in letting different ideas fight it out in competitions!

If you noticed the title of this topic...how can I make a stronger statement??? I said these articles would not be for everyone!!! They are presented for those that are interested in a method of training that is proven to work for trails riders as well as many other sports.
