Snowboarding is less brute strength and more technique and mastering your craft. A lot like surfing, golf, etc. Core and cardio are actually key.
I ride with some little dudes when the freestyle teams are together on weekends and it blows me away, what some little 12 year olds, and 14 year olds can do with strong fundamentals and strong technique.

I just really watch what, ingredients and portion sizes.
I'm very happy with the P90X program but I did need to subsitute the cardio days with Insanity Cardio. The P90X was just to light for me and this helped me a ton.
I never ever believe info-mercials and this wasn't all done via simply using their program. This with eating clean has gotten me to a weight I haven't seen in 20yrs. When I was a gym rat my goals were different. I welcomed being 205lb but at this point in my life that is not what I want this time.
Snowboarding: what I truly got is a much much stronger core ! and cardio. Not sure cardio is going to add to my boarding but that has also greatly improved. I have always had very strong legs so again not sure how much I'll gain in the boarding aspect.
Flexibility was another great by-product with my core strength. My flexibility especially my hammy's and back/mid section. I noticed a big difference when I worked with Jed on my dry land stuff. Hoping it translates on the snow.
YES we all know actually doing the riding and hitting features and being on the hill is what we all need. My workout inconjunction with my 30+ days at the hill (for here that is a LOT) will make for some great vids/pics of my and my daughters park adventures this season

So, you guys are going to laugh about this, but for me, the perfect off season workout seems to be rollerblading.
I have some seriously asymmetrical flexibility in my ankles and knees (thanks snowboarding!) and the angulation required to skate well has almost completely evened out my right ankle in the span of about two months. I had done physical therapy, balance board exercises, tons of focused stretching, and it all helped a little, but there's something about the motivation of faceplanting on concrete that really forces you into holding a stretch.

Anyway, I bought the type they have at the gym, because knew I liked it.

The one I have is similar to this Balance Board and it will wobble heel/toe as well as side to side. This means if you have a tendency to lean forward or back, you'll find out right away.

Well, as it turns out. Here is a great new board sport that you can use to help maintain your conditioning between trips to the hill.
Doesn't require any new gear or even a slope to do! (…just gotta watch out you don't go and develop Skootch Leg!)

|cookiedog||Btw.Yesterday at my gym I saw a wobble board (pic below) and gave it a try. Do you think it will be a good addition to pre season workout to improve balance on the board?|
