I have not been taking care of myself, and have been relying only on my riding ability. Now it's time for a change, I'm ready to WIN!!!!!!!!!!!
Any work-out, diet tips or any thing else that would give me more endurance would be very helpful, and greatly appreciated.

Like many of us, I like to indulge in food and drink and other things.. I have been told by some that I am one of those naturally talented riders. If I applied myself and trained that I could be......
Anyway, enough of that. What I am getting to is this. Train, ride, change your diet and be sure that you still have fun.
Lately, I have found that these are the things that actually help me. Pushups and grip ball. This is where we all suffer. the dreaded arm pump. Do as many pushups as you can every other morning, but dont go overboard with the numbers. When you find you can do many, try doing less but much slower. Meals before riding. Something high in carbs.. Pancakes, seriously. No coffee, plenty of juice and plenty of water. I find mixing 50% water and 50% juice helps with the hydration and the vitamins.
The night before, drink about 2 litres of water, force it down!
A few weeks back we rode on Sat and Sun. Sunday I suffered arm pump. All night I felt heat flowing in my forearms... weird. BUT, the next day, I suffered no arm pump at all.... Prior to riding, make sure you stretch those forearm muscles. Fulling your fingers back as far as possible till you feel the stretch and hold it for 15 seconds. The push down on your wrist (as though you are trying to force your hand to fold on your wrist) and hold for 15 seconds. Repeat this cycle on both arms and then repeat for 10 seconds and then for 5.
Anyway, good luck
PS. Sex before physical excertion for men is actually bad... Proven scientific fact.
