Staying Fit to Recover Fast

160617_127

Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK rider Alex Lowes knows what it takes to stay in shape and at the top of his game when racing on the world stage. His fitness and determination are the foundation of the Briton’s ability to recover quickly from injury when the need arises. Working out daily with his UK-based trainer Kirk Gibbons, Lowes has a tight-knit band of training partners from a variety of sport – Boxing, MX, Superbikes and Speedway to name a few – providing him with a multi-discipline programme.

Alex, the ‘off-season’ in the Superbike World Championship is fairly short compared to most, especially with the added pressures of testing, but getting a good base for your fitness is important at this time of year. What is a typical training schedule like for you throughout the winter?

“Yes I have my own trainer, a guy called Kirk. Honestly for me, he is the best, and knows what I need and more importantly when I need to be in my best shape. I don’t worry too much about my fitness I just make sure every day when I turn up to training I work 100% as hard as I can, this makes sure I’m ready come the start of the season. I do agree the off season is when I train my hardest, because we can train uninterrupted by the races or PR commitments. I train five days a week, every morning at 7am in the gym, then in the afternoons I try to ride as much as I can whether it be motocross, trials or with the pit bikes. I don’t train with Kirk at the weekend so I use that time as my rest days during the winter.”
