BikeJames Podcast

11 november 2019

The Podcast for the MTB Strength Training System, the world's original and best strength and conditioning system designed exclusively for mountain bikers.
  • Sleep Coaching with Nick Lambe

    Have you ever heard the saying that “to achieve what others can’t, you must be willing to do what others won’t”?

    Of course, you can use this saying to motivate you to work out or watch what you eat...and you should, because those are important things...but I’d argue that you should also use it to motivate you to get more sleep.

    Most people reading this are sleep deprived in some way, either from a lack of sleep or poor quality sleep. And while I knew that sleep was important, it wasn’t until recently that I realized how important it was.

    Whatever the cause, the results from sleep deprivation are the same…

    • Decreases in aerobic capacity
    • Decreases in strength and power
    • Increases in reaction times 
    • Increases in catabolic “stress” hormones

    ...and this is just to name a few. As the guest on this podcast put it, sleep is the lever that you can pull that will impact everything else in your body.

    In this episode of the BikeJames Podcast, I interview sleep coach Nick Lambe. He helps people improve their sleep habits and the quality of their sleep through his business The Online Sleep Coach and he came on the podcast to share some insights and tips to help you with yours.

    You can learn more and contact Nick on IG at@theonlinesleepcoach or online He does both private and small group sleep coaching and I highly recommend checking out the free stuff he posts on Instagram.


    Sleep is like a legal performance enhancing drug that far too few of us take advantage of. Hopefully this podcast will help you achieve better results both on and off the bike by daring to do what others won’t...getting enough sleep.

    Until next time…

    Ride Strong,

  • Primal Skills Camp Recap: 3 Lessons to Help You In The Gym and On The Bike

    In this episode of the BikeJames Podcast, I recap the 3 lessons I took away over the course of the two day skills and fitness camp I hosted a few weeks ago. All four riders who made the trip made some big breakthroughs with how they moved on and off the bike and I hope that these lessons can help you too.

    They are:

    1. The importance of Isometric Training for developing strength.
    2. The importance of having weight on your hands to drive your movement on the bike.
    3. The importance of mobility training if you want to “ride for a lifetime”.

    I also give a review of the Eliptigo M-SUB, which is a stand up bike that I used at the camp to help the riders get a better feel for some of the positions I was talking to them about. I think that it has a lot of potential for us as mountain bikers - definitely a better off season training option than a road bike - and you can check them out at after you listen to the podcast if you’re interested in learning more.


    Until next time…

  • Next Level Soft Tissue Strategies - Interview with Chris Duffin from Kabuki Strength

    Last week I posted a review of a new soft tissue tool I’ve been using called the Boomstick. At roughly 2 feet long and weighing 20 pounds, it opens up ways to address tightness and mobility that I didn’t know existed.

    Having a long history with the foam roller I thought I knew a lot when it came to improving recovery and mobility through soft tissue work but after experiencing the Boomstick at a seminar I realized I still had a lot to learn. So I decided to go to the man behind the Boomstick, Chris Duffin.

    Chris is the founder of Kabuki Strength, a company dedicated to moving the fitness industry forward through innovative training tools and education. He is also the author of the book The Eagle and The Dragon, which tells the story of how he overcame a lot of obstacles to get to where he is today.

    I got Chris on for a podcast interview to go over his views on strength and recovery and how they tie into the next level soft tissue work you can do with tools like the Boomstick. We also touch on barefoot training and Mace Swinging (a.k.a. 360’s and 10-2’s). It was a great talk covering a lot of topics but one that anyone interested in maximizing their recovery while decreasing the chance of injury should check out.
