Is BASE BUILDING a big thing with mountain biking like the Roadie world? I've been back into mountain biking for about 15 months and enjoy it more than ever. I do want to improve. Strength and endurance are still priorities.
Lunges and squats seem to be big in things that I read. Other bike disciplines keep the heart rate in Z2-3 for 2 months and just ride a ton of seemingly boring miles.
Is that important to building strength, do you have some plans? Conversation in Training and Nutrition seems to focus on Road work. I hope for something more specific.
