Question Strengthening and Conditioning

well now that's the seasons over in az I'm looking at getting back into shape. This was my first year boarding and even though I enjoyed the exprience. I ended the season feeling I could have been a lot better had I been in better shape. Well I got the snowboarding bug and even though I'm boarding in AZ I'm hooked! I wanna be prepared for next season so I can be completely prepared. My goal for next season is to ride anywhere from 20-25 days next season. So I got the gym membership all I need now is the knowledge on what muscles to excersize and what type of conditioning is best to gain stamina. I'm literally hooked on snowboarding... sucks though that the best mountain to ride on is nearly 4 hours away I only went 5 times this year but it was enough ot get me hooked

This early on the conditioning phase, nothing specific will be that helpful. Work on overall fitness by doing cardio and working on decreasing your body fat percentage. Carrying excess baggage will always be unproductive. Work on core strength a lot as well since that is an important component of snowboarding. As the season approaches, then begin to focus more on leg strength and lactic acid threshold levels by doing squats and other leg workouts and running sprints and stairs

It helps with jumping and hitting obstacles. Explosive power is great for pop! Helps with buttering too.

Heavy weghts, cardio and yoga.
Surprisingly, Yoga helped with stamina the most because of all the static holds you do.

When youre throwing for a 360 or whatev, its much easier if you have some mass and quick, strong muscles so you can throw hard. That and what Music said
