Weather finally started shaping up here in NY and ive only gotten to ride twice before the loretta lynns qualifier this weekend. And needless to say, i couldn't even hold on for 5 minutes, my arms just pumped up and I could hardly pull in the clutch. Ive never had it this bad, even the first rides of the season. And i feel like my gym routine is to blame, ive been doing a power lifting routine for about 7 months. Anyway, i will be switching up my routine now that riding season has come around but i want to be able to hold on racing this weekend, any pre-race tips to minimize arm pump? Potassium helps with cramps, anything help with arm pump? Stretching? What kinds of stretches work good? Only have until saturday with two short rides under my belt.. I also have new bars, mounts, and grips this year but i don't think that is the cause (pillow tops, easton), most likely my workout routine.
