stretch every muscle on your body before you get on the board. Take it easy and get your body used to riding before you start pushing it too hard, or you'll end up like me . Stretch before you leave to the mountain and stretch on the mountain before you strap in.

I just snowboard to warm me up for snowboarding. Stretch before the first few times though as others have said - your muscles aren't used to working like that.

I like squats. Or those wall sits where you sit in an invisible chair against the wall. And balance exercises.
