I had my first ride of the year on my dirt bike.
The biggest reason for this test was to see how my body reacted to riding my dirt bike, both during the ride and after. As a test to see how “bad” things really are. I guess it it the same for most people, but i feel that it takes a lot more out of your body riding a dirt bike. You are standing up all the time and put more pressure on legs and arms. Mostly legs but arms too for me considering the lack of core strength.
Things were pretty much as i expected. Didn’t take long before my legs and my arms felt tired. And despite a shorter session today, my legs and arms hurt more after and felt a lot more tired.
I already knew that i have a lot of basic workout to do, to get in shape. I need to improve my strength a lot. Thats problably the biggest issue at the moment and especially my core strength and upper body strength. My legs are not as bad and they are easier to get fit. I just need to ride my bike as much as possible. Core strengt and upper body strength is a bit more complicated, for me anyway. I never seems to get much of that part when riding my bikes. so i need to do other things.
Was nice anyway to have a ride on my dirt bike early on. I am planning to have atleast one session a week on my dirt bike. Maybe two sessions a week if i can make it work, and i have as many sessions a week as i have had this week. Could be less bike sessions per week if i need to have more serious strength training done.
