I don't have much spare time so it's important to me that my gym workouts get the best outcome in the shortest time. I have done a lot of research into the more efficient gym routines and have been doing some comparisons on how effectively each routine builds muscle, burns calories and improves my blood pressure. This blog is my way of keeping a track of the different routines I have tried and showing how everybody responds differently to different workout regimes. I hope it will be useful for other people trying to get maximum effect in the minimum time.
One skill that most newbie pit bike owners want to master is how to pull a wheelie. Here's how to do it.
Get Kitted Out First
While you're learning how to pull a wheelie, it's almost inevitable that you will bite the dust at least a few times. For safety's sake, make sure that you're all kitted out properly in full-length trousers or leathers, knee and elbow pads, boots, and a well-fitting helmet.
How to Pull a Wheelie
Sitting or Standing
Although you can wheelie either standing or sitting, it's best to start off sitting while you are learning and finding your balance. Ultimately, you should aim to wheelie from a standing position.
Standing not only looks more impressive to your friends, it's also actually safer. If you think the bike is going to flip over and you're standing, you can let go of the machine and jump clear. If you're sitting, you're more likely to end up with the bike landing on top of you in the event of a flip.
Standing to pull a wheelie makes it easier to keep your balance. Push your weight right down into your heels and pull your shoulders back, absorbing concussion and adjusting your balance by keeping your knees soft.
Mastering the Technique
Pulling a wheelie on your new pit bike is a skill that you will want to master as soon as possible to impress your mates. If you want to compete in cross country trials, a wheelie can also come in handy when negotiating berms.Share
