Well I have to say it; I disagree with the three pounds lost in one week and really disagree with trying to lose four pounds in a week. The absolute maximum recommended weight loss within one week is two pounds. Your much better off if you loose one pound a week and even better if it is just ½ pound or so a week. Loosing to much weight to fast (over two pounds a week ) is hard on the psych, liver and kidneys. You are setting yourself up for a tremendous rebound in weight gain! If not getting heaver when it is all set and done. Look. You did not gain your weight by three or more pounds a week. It just kind of slowly packs up on you. Loose it the same way. Over a long, slow and steady loss. This way you do not have to do dramatic changes in your daily eating and exercise habits that you can not sustain. Watch what you eat and eat a little less calories. Hopefully exchanging high fat, empty nutrition junk with fruits and veggies. Walking a little bit more or at least putting the body in motion a little bit more. In ways you can sustain. Like parking the car just as soon as you hit the very first empty parking space at the mall. Then walk alllll the way across the parking lot. You will get far less door dings too. Tell me to stop drinking my beer and I would loose a lot of weight. And I would tell you to take a flying #@*& leap off of the closest bridge. I would even help you to the bridge! I choose to bicycle to work the four miles instead. And when I get home that first beer really tastes good. It is all about balance. Sustained calories in, vs. sustained calories out.

Hubby doesn't use them. He can't breath properly with them on.

Post Script: Another clue that MX riders are very fit. One of the essential pieces of safety equipment that a MX rider absolutely has to have is a kidney belt. A kidney belt is kind of like a corset. For the MX rider you have to have one, just as you need a helmet. Well you only need a helmet just in case you crash. A kidney belt holds your kidneys in place. If you’re a serious rider you body fat composition drops below 10%. Your kidneys are supported by your body fat. To little body fat does not support your kidneys, thus you need the kidney belt. Floating kidneys coupled with all the rough jerking that the body goes through in a MX race means that you are going to be in serious pain from the kidneys. Just as someone had punched you in the kidney; if you try and race without one.

Leeza,

Well, come on down! We will gladly be your tour guides and workout buddies. ;)

That doesn't surprise me about motocross though. Pro racers do 30 minute plus one lap mottos. They only do two mottos now. In the 70s, when motocross was in its prime, the pros did three mottos.

It is one of the few sports that works every muscle in your body, which is probably why it was compared to cross country skiing. Hubby has surprised a few fitness trainers. He is able to keep his heart rate, at his normal rate, for a very long time, while working out. I have often wondered how much motocross plays a part in that.

And I'm pretty sure that the marathon runner would not have the strength needed for motocross racing. A "fit" athlete like a sprinter would also struggle in the marathon.

There are different levels of fitness. I competed in a sport that required both strength and endurance. Marathon runners do not need to do as much strength work as a middle distance runner, speed skater, or a rower, for example. The context of the conversation I had with the sports doc was the kind of fitness level and body type found in sports that need both superior power and stamina.

I am not an expert, nor did I want to open a debate about who the "fittest" athletes are... but actually this is kind of fun! So debate away-- masterdebaters!!!

I saw an Iron Man Motocross competition on ESPN last year. That is more than your usual competiotion. You have a huge course, have to get up moutains, even in mud. So many people dropped out in the first day. I think it was three days of racing.

My ex was not a professional motocross racer, but he did ride dirt bikes like a motocross racer. He found it was more enjoyable than motorcycles, but he did mention it takes alot of physical endurance.
