Top 3 Weightlifting Tips For New Bikers
If you want to be a good rider you need to be in a good
physical shape. We're not talking about the biker dating scene, no, we're
talking about the necessary build and strength you need to possess in order to
handle your mean machine. Your stamina and endurance need to be good too, but
more importantly, you need to focus on improving your core, legs, and arms. The
best way to do that is by implementing some basic weightlifting exercises into
your daily gym routine. Here are the 3 weightlifting tips every motorcycle
rookie needs to check out.
Squats With Weights
In order to be one of those strong biker men you always
admired, you need to start with your legs. Back squats with weights on your
upper back will do the trick. This exercise is rather simple, but you have to
be careful not to force yourself straight away. At first, you should definitely
start with smaller barbells and then, over time, increase the weight of your
Of course, there is a correct way to do this exercise. You need
to put weights on your upper back and descend into a squat while keeping your
torso in the upright position. This particular drill will strengthen your
quadriceps, hips, and lumbar spinal erectors. How will back squats improve your
riding skills? Well, you will be able to produce more raw force with your legs
which means you will be capable of easily absorbing big bumps on the road.
This is one of the most popular weightlifting exercises
in all biker clubs across the world. All you need is a proper bench, a
bar, and a couple of weights. However, we recommend that you have someone there
to spot you, just to be safe. Position your hands just a little bit wider than
your shoulder width and slowly pull the bar all the way to your chest. Then,
push the bar away from you, but make sure to thrust it at the very same rate
you pulled it towards your chest area. Bench press will strengthen your
pectoral muscles, triceps, and your shoulders. After you improve these areas,
you'll be able to handle the front of your bike more efficiently.
If you're a rookie, you should definitely avoid heavy
dumbbells. Instead, try holding a 20 lbs dumbbell in each hand while doing this
fun exercise. It may seem easy and unchallenging at first, but trust us, you
will feel the burn after a few repeats. In order to successfully do these
lunges, you need to hold the weights in your hands with your arms hanged
downward from your shoulders.
Make sure to stand completely upright with your back
straight. Then, take one big step forward until you see that your shin is in an
upright position and try to create a 90-degree angle with your front knee. Now,
lower the knee on your other leg almost all the way to the ground, but don't
Don't forget to keep your back straight at all times. Stay
in that position for a few seconds and then withdraw your front leg and return
to a standing position. Repeat the exact same process with your other leg. This
amazing drill will increase the strength of your quads, hamstrings, and glutes.
It will also improve your core which is crucial for a better control of your
