rather be a pussy and be on the mountain shredding than laid up
I used to lift heavy too but after straining my back several times i went alternate route. i do routines that push my endurance for wakeboarding, snowboarding etc. I ride 10 days straight first call last chair while my friends barely put in 3 hours each day on a 4 day trip
For a bit of a change-up on your leg work, use one of the machines and do reps very slowly, i.e. 10 seconds for the press and 10 seconds for the release. HUGE burn with maybe 2/3 of your normal weight setting.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
