Deadlifts are definitely a good whole body lift. People just need to make sure they get there form right if they are new to it. I watch alot of people do it and just watching them makes my lower back hurt. I also lift with a guy who has horrible form but is stupid strong and pretty much straight leg deadlifts 675.

I'm new here and saw this thread and had to comment.

2 years ago I decided I had to get back into shape. It took me a full 2 years to drop 60 lbs by lifting heavy 5-6 days a week.

Just the other week I got back onto my board after a 25 year lay-off. I boarded for 5 hours straight at my local mountain, the next day I had zero soreness. It was like I never stopped boarding. I do heavy squats usually twice a week and would recommend weight training to anyone riding a board.

i know this is an easy answer by just going to youtube and looking it up, but the website is blocked at my work (or it may just be my computer)...but regardless, to humor my question...what do you consider proper form for deadlifts? to my knowledge it's to bend your knees a little bit, get into "ready position" and then keep your back straight while you bend over 90 degrees, and then lift up with your lower back? or am i confusing this with another lift?

Not 90. You bend at the knees, back straight, not hunched, head up and lift with your legs and back. There are different dead lift techniques, sumo, straight legged, wide-short stances, etc.

Find a place in front of a mirror to do deadlifts. Keep your head up and watch your form. If you keep your head up and watch yourself in the mirroe it'll be harder to hunch your back.

This thread has been dead awhile but I got got a question I guess. I'm pretty big into lifting weights, and I've gained about 20lbs (from 180ish-200ish) from doing so. Is my weight going to affect my riding when it comes to park? Should I cut back down farther before the season comes to ride better in the park?

Default Core

I think that the most important thing for snowboarding is core. Dont go and bulk up on machines that basically get you huge without the ability to lift anything other than the machine. Use free weights to train your core. This has helped my snowboarding incredibly this last season.

I would think its what would you prefer. The size gains that you have made from weight lifting or park riding. Personally I loved being ripped at 210lbs back in the day. I don't think that the added weight would affect your riding as the muscles and your balance are far more important. I have seen scrawny like kids nailing great tricks and I have seen bigger kids throwing awesome 7's. So I don't think your weight would be an issue as stated before more your ability to control and use your body.

At Whistler this last March I was unpleasantly surprised to find myself running out of gas after some of those long runs. Leg burn became a real issue. It's not simply a question of endurance as I run half-marathons, but that's different from the muscle strength necessary to hold a semi-squat for long periods of time. Anyway, I started playing around with different exercise formats and I eventually discovered that using a moderate weight and doing very slow reps (about 15 seconds per rep) with no bottoming or topping out produces a burn very much like what I was getting while boarding. So I've been doing sets of Very Slow Reps, combined with about 15 minutes of stretching, and a couple of sessions on the balance board. Feels like a very good conditioning regimen for snowboarding. Of course I also still do the treadmill, and run regularly.
