I'm not the gym type, prefer to be outdoors.
Doing horseriding 5 times a week: gives you a very strong core and legs. For all those who think that horseriding is just sitting and no sport, try to control a 1200lbs TB in full speed or ride a dressage program in sitting trot before you judge . Dressage and XC demand a lot of balance and muscle force.
Not doing any specific endurance training, but walk a lot (fast pase, walking slowly makes me crazy ): not taking the bus gives me 40min from the parking lot to the office and not taking the lift to my office in the 6th floor gives a lot of extra steps. These little every day activities were sufficiant so far to have enough endurance for hiking or 6hrs snowboarding. Front leg is a bit more tired at the beginning of the season, but quickly builds up.

This is a good point, not using technology to haul your ass around is great for the legs. I always take the stairs and walk to places, I even walk to the market and hump my groceries back in my rucksack.

I've been hitting the gym 6 days a week since last winter, It's really seemed to improve my knees and core, I'm pretty excited about the upcoming season! I've been doing legs twice a week (ATG squats, weighted lunges, Iso stuff) and lots of core work. I need to start doing more cardio to get my wind back before the season starts. Thinking about adding in sprints, I've been playing pickup games of BB a lot too.


The only lingering injury I'm thinking about going in for is my rotator cuff or shoulder, whatever it is. I can't do a pull up without extreme pain, I feel like it's limiting a lot of my goals. 2 years I could do 4 sets of 10 easy, now I can't do three and I'm in much better shape. I think it was from a accident at work a couple years ago or a blind cliff I launched off of (Flat, rocky, oops!) I just followed a line and figured since someone went off it must be ok.

Rotator cuff injuries are probably one of the most frequent injuries experienced by athletes and non-athletes... Shoulder hurt? Don't put this off. Here are some treatment methods and exercises for a successful recovery.

The problem with rotator cuff tears is no one is ever frigging specific about what muscle that is torn.... Each muscle has a very different function it shouldn't be generalized together.
Rotator cuff tears can also coincide with other shoulder injuries that need to be addressed as well.

As for working out, it depends on your fitness level. Knee stabilization is pretty f'ing vital. I see riders all the time who are at high risk of doing some permanent damage to their knee. ALl of it is preventable

I've been riding my bike to work (10 miles each way) and then working my ass off all day. As work slows down a bit and the season approaches I'll get back into P90X and skate ski when it's too crummy out for snowboarding.

What's up Gents,
All this is great info. I was about to post up a similar question and WALLA, amazing what you find when you look first I have been doing bodybuilding.com workouts on and off the past 6-8 months. I've been slacking the past month cause I work FT and do school online FT too so it gets hectic around exams, etc. I'm going to buy an Ab-wheel tonight and work off that MtnAthlete link too. I feel I've lost a lot of dexterity in my muscle function as a whole since I got Lyme Disease though but I press on, can't fix it. I take a daily vitamin with everything and then some, omega 3-6-9's, and Glutamine pre and post with a shake and protein after. I'm 6'2 250 and would love to drop 20lbs and i'm quitting smoking Saturday so determination is key for me. calfs and hip-flexors are what gets me most.
