I'm working on posting a workout guide to benefit snowboarding progression.
In terms of exercises one can do to gain core strength, balance and coordination. Will post up in a few days as I been getting really busy with work. Stay posted

Found out on Saturday one of the guys that mentored me (Nate Palmer of N8trainingsystems.com) trained a Pro Snowboarder named Tom from summit county. Dont know who he boarded for but they stayed in az for a month to train with him a couple months ago. I'm working on getting some of the details on what/why they did for you guys. So stay posted I may open another thread for this is I can get it.

My first year I was bulking, and it was a pain (literally) picking my hefty self off the snow. Now, 3 years later I'm cutting and I can't wait to see what type of difference dropping 30lbs makes.

Cool thread, btw.

So what's your take on whey protein?

I'm not trying to lose fat(Im 6'2 175 and 13% body fat)
Generally I drink a 35 gram shake after a workout and it does shorten my recovery time.

From everything i have heard whey is actually really good for you. but i have never really looked into it.

Whole food are better and I just read a study that said the anabolic nature of your protein consumption increases when eating whole foods after working out. Suppliment companys started this whole BS myth about how good protein shakes are. Yes they add to more muscle growth but its only supplemental. This may sound nuts man but buy EGGS and eat them on training days. I eat about 10 eggs a day on days I lift weight or train. 6 in a omlet, 4 in a shake. Now heres the thing with protein shakes and how you can buy something more for your needs. Whey is good after workout but you could do more with others. They have shakes that have various types of protein that consume and build over extended time. What does this mean? well your increasing the types of proteins you consume which gives your body IMO a better effect then just WHEY.

I follow the understanding that my body repairs everything at night because its proven by science not "bro science". So I eat after workout rather then consume shakes. I do drink shakes prior to bed because I mix in Berries, Bananas and eggs with my protein. the shakes dont exzactly digest over 8 hours but not neccesarily within the hour like they say. They do become active in the blood over night which is what you want. This increases the gains and makes it so you dont gotta eat a whole bunch of protein all day. Try eating your meals in a span of 8 hours (3meals) shakes included prior to bed. So if im going to bed around 10 at night I start eating at about 1-2pm

FWIW I'm getting started with the Bulletproof Diet. I got sucked in by the coffee, been drinking coffee for 25 years and this shit is like...a whole new world...anyway I like alot of this guys' concepts.

I'm not pushing this, I havent spent any money on this guys stuff, its alot of free info.

diet:

coffee:

Even if you don't care about the diet, the coffee is worth checking out if you do any kind of hard core all day sport like a day of riding or climbing mountains or both. Its a great start.

I would like some help. I will read through this, and I'm sure you will have answered 70% of what i need to know by then, if not more.

I weigh 210, and I'm 5'9.

I ran for about a week and a half, and then stopped. I lost 5 lbs, without doing weight training. I was walking for 5 minutes, stretching my calf's, before jogging a mile, two days, and one rest.. Some days, I would throw 30-45 min of some walking also. Where I'm lacking is my nutrition. I live at home, so it's hard to eat what i want.

My goal is to make my body look as sexy as heaven. Lean, Not to muscular, but muscular. You know.

By live at home I'm assuming you mean with your parents? If what you have available to you is poor quality food (because let's face it, most Americans eat like shit and it's pretty normal) make a plea to your parent's about losing weight and needing some healthier things to eat. Start making your own meals instead of just relying on whatever is getting made, that way you will be in control of your diet. Stick to the basics: vegetables, fruits, grains, rice, dairy, nuts. Stay away from processed foods if possible; NO SOFT DRINKS, NO FAST FOOD. Unless you hate it, start drinking tea. It will give you something super healthy and hydrating to drink, making you fuller and less susceptible towards turning to the sugary alternatives (avoid drinking on an empty stomach, you will get stomach rot). You can still indulge in crap food every once in a while, but that does mean every once in a while. It should be an irregular treat, not a normality.

When I lost weight way back when I did these things, and through my influence I actually got my parent's to start eating/buying healthier things.

The most important part about losing weight too and keeping it off, is that your lifestyle and diet changes must also be forever - you can't go back to eating crap and not exercising after losing weight. You don't really have to keep an exercise routine - but you have to be active and eating healthy. After losing weight a lot of people will go right back to their old bad habits, and gain it all back.

Do you enjoy running? It's a good way to accomplish your goal, but for me at least, I hate running and would lose interest really quickly. Anything cardio-intensive will give you the type of body you want, I would suggest doing a little upper-body workout as well. Just buy a basic weight set and do a little bit everyday, no need to go crazy if you're not looking for a super-muscular body. You can always get a gym membership, but most people never end up using it...

^^^^ excellent advice from hobo master

Sounds to me like you plateaued very fast which is what happens with long distance running for most people. Dont run long distance, walk and sprint for leaning out with weight lifting. I have already wrote a shit ton about running and lifting, fat vs muscle in weight so read it and ask ?'s if you have any.

Try doing complex lifting routines like Squats, Lunges, Pull ups, Chin ups, Farmer carries. If you do these with weight keep this in mind. Your muscle with any lift does a Contract and Detract. Allot of peole lift a weight and only build on the 1st part. For example avg joe says "I CAN BENCH 280 FTW" but the bar crushes the chest coming down and they only exercise it going up. when I do any complex lift I do the pump as fast as possible (explosive) coming down I count to 2-3 before I explode the bar back up. This builds muscle allot more proportional at any weight and does the exercise the way it was supposed to be done.

I dont want to have to much bulk on my chest. My focus is to exercise the muscle and build strength but I purposely dont look to bench over 200 lbs 5 times. I dont want to get heavier up top so my focus is to keep weight,bulk off my knees and legs for snowboarding. Me doing it this way developes muscle there but its not just huge bulk. follow this with all exercise/complex lift. When it comes to legs and Back lifts I try and put up as much weight as possible adding weight on every week. I do follow that contract and detract method though. Also look up RPT (reverse pyramid training) for strength building doing that with what I just talked about. It will help you get where you want. You might just be better at boarding too

Thanks guys. So, do you lose weight all over. I have small, what assholes would call, "bitch titties", LOL. I have a huge butt and my thighs are monstrous, along with my belly.

My goal is to lose weight and gain muscle in my legs and other areas. Mainly, I would like to tone, and gain some muscle. Definitely want to strengthen up everything.

I hear higher reps, but lower weight achieves the toning.

It kind of depends on your body and genealogy. For me the areas that took longest to slim down were thighs and butt, fat came off the stomach area probably the quickest. It does start slimming down in all body zones, but you will notice certain areas will lag. I still have a little thigh fat that stubbornly won't go away (I just get skinnier in other places...) and a naturally big butt, but the girls like that so I guess I don't care .
