  1. Most nutritional and hydration errors occur because the food and water is not readily available. If you are hungry and you don’t have healthy snacks and meals to consume, you will inevitably end up going through a drive through to satisfy your hunger – this is completely different than eating fast food because you don’t care about your health. Speaking of being hungry, this is a sensation that you should NOT be experiencing on a daily basis. When it comes to nutrition for both your health and performance, there are two simple questions that you have to ask yourself: 1. Am I eating fresh fruit, vegetables and high quality fat every two (2) hours? 2. Am I getting hungry before the two (2) hour window of time has transpired? Think about this for a minute, if you are eating nutrient dense fruits, vegetables and protein every two hours (this stabilizes your blood sugar levels along with satisfies your appetite) and you are still getting hungry – YOU NEED TO EAT MORE FOOD! This sounds completely contrary to the mainstream mindset; however, being hungry will undermine your efforts at each workout. Think about your car, if you have a half a tank of gas and you want to drive 1000 miles, you can’t without filling up your gas tank. Your body is the same one but with one extra catch. To improve your workout quality, your brain and muscles need adequate sugar to complete the workout and raise its fitness to the next level. Without the new threshold of workload, the muscles will not be stimulated enough to create an adaptation – the result is a performance plateau. When it comes to determining how much protein, carbohydrates and fats you have to consume refrain from pulling out a scale and reading labels extensively. Instead, focus on your hunger levels (there shouldn’t be any), evaluate your performance results (consistency and improvement) and your biofeedback (quality of sleep, resting heart rate, personality characteristics). If these evaluation elements are not consistently positive, you need to eat more food. If you begin to eat too much (this rarely happens), you will get a clear notice: your clothes will begin to wear tight. Remember, stress comes in many forms: relationship, work, financial, workouts, hydration, hunger, etc. The value of your health and wellnexs is finding the correct balance of volume & intensity of training to maximize your training efforts and achieve your personal goals. Ironically, it all starts with consuming adequate amounts of high quality food, remember it is all about Working Smart, Not Hard! Yours in health and sport, -Coach Robb
  2. Any suggestions? I have a Camelback, and I can barely drink the water out of it. Plus, I think the chemicals are making me grow boobies and I might be getting my first period.
  3. Are you frustrated that your training and eating habits are not producing the results you are looking for? Coach Robb’s Podcast #11 drills down on the top six culprits that could be holding you back. Coach Robb taps into his 30+ years of working with clients, athletes and racers to outline how overlooking little things can create a domino effect that undermines your efforts and eventually your health without you seeing it until it is too late. He also explains why trying harder is not always the correct mindset when it comes to breaking through personal plateaus. If you are tired of being tired or ready to bust through performance glass ceilings, you don’t want to miss this podcast!
  4. Frequently I discuss the importance of proper hydration and nutrition as it relates to building and repairing muscle tissue, burning unwanted body fat and consuming enough water, sugar and electrolytes to perform optimally every day when you head out the door. With this in mind, I want you to begin keeping a very detailed analysis of your sweat rate. Nutrition as it relates to performance is an interesting subject; we look at the quality and quantity of your food intake and evaluate if you have enough energy to finish your workouts feeling strong throughout the duration of the workout. If you begin to fatigue, we know that we need to adjust the quantity (we assume that the quality is there at this point). Now let’s take a detailed look at your hydration as it relates to your performance. Proper hydration is going to affect your body in two ways: one, it helps you regulate your core body temperature. The cooler you are from the inside out, the better you will perform. The second benefit to proper hydration is that your muscles (and brain) are receiving enough water, electrolytes and sugar to perform properly: good mental clarity and strong muscle contractions. To improve your confidence on race day, you need to know what your sweat/replenishment rate is specific to your intensity with the factor of temperature & humidity. Though it sounds tedious during the week, it is invaluable on race day – you will know exactly what your hydration strategy to implement to race up to your fullest potential. Until next time, work smart - not hard! -Coach Robb
  5. I want to send someone a brand new USWE Ranger 9 Action Pack for FREE. What's the catch? Not much! Post up a pic of your current hydration pack, maybe one that has seen better days or isn't getting the job done with the following caption above your photo: That's all there is too it! What the hell do Dancing Monkeys have to do with hydration packs? Fair question! GO HERE and watch the short video... Actual USWE Ranger 9 Action Pack being given away: My unit on the trail: Giveaway will close for entries sometime the morning of 10/30. Winner will be notified via email address attached to forum account.
  6. Every industry has iconic brands that pretty much everyone knows about. If you ask a rider to name a leading dirt bike exhaust brand, they’ll likely say FMF. Ask the same about handlebars and you’ll probably hear Renthal or Pro Taper. I also encounter brands that make really good stuff, but for any number of reasons, just aren't well known. One such brand is USWE Sports, a Swedish manufacturer of high-quality, high-performance hydration packs for the moto, mtb, snow, and running sports. Interestingly enough, you just might have experienced a USWE product, as they made packs for popular moto brands such as Leatt, MSR, and Fly Racing. Action Pack, NOT Backpack! So, what's the "secret sauce" that USWE bakes into its action packs that makes them especially good for us dirt bike guys? At the heart of USWE hydration packs is NDM (No Dancing Monkey 🐵) technology. It’s a goofy visual for their award winning, patented 4-point suspension harness and buckle system that allows the pack to form fit very snug against your body, virtually stopping pack bounce in rough terrain, while maintaining comfort, freedom-of-movement & breathing capacity. This sounds like a simple enough task, but it’s taken many iterations and thousands of sweaty riding hours to get USWE action packs to this level of performance. Even the bladder itself has design elements that work in concert with their patented harness to minimize and control pack movement. Here's a short video that demonstrates NDM tech (harness demo @ 1:12). From the Swedish Horse's Mouth Recently I caught up with Karl-Johan Engdahl, USWE Co-Founder and Business Development & Marketing Director for a few questions: TT: The USWE name... What’s the backstory there? Something interesting in Swedish? TT: USWE has been in the hydration pack game for over a decade. What accomplishment are you guys most proud of? TT: Amazing riders like Colton Haaker, Cody Webb, Taylor Robert, Billy Bolt, and Alfredo Gomez are USWE sponsored. How much of a role do they play in shaping USWE product development and design? TT: At least in the US, you can walk into most big box stores and pick up a hydration pack for pretty cheap. Why are some riders still spending more money on USWE hydration packs? TT: Where can we expect to see USWE this year in terms of events & series? TT: The floor is yours Karl. What else do you want riders to know about USWE and its products? USWE Athlete, Billy Bolt @billybolt57 USWE wants to get their action packs in the hands of riders because they're confident that once tried, they'll be a convert. Stay tuned for a USWE product giveaway that we'll be hosting before the end of the year. They'll be giving away a bunch of action packs to lucky Thumpertalk Community Members!
