IV. Just Ride
a. You're not Mr. Universe
b. Stop taking this shit so seriously
c. How does the 7 days of partying per week and downing 12 litres of vodka every night fit in with your cardio and core muscles and whatever?
d. It's a snowboard, not a marathon

I offered to give someone some basic info about proper nutrtion and excercise. Since then I've gotten quite a few PMs. The truth is, there are people on this forum who have some unhealthy lifestyles. They want to do something about it. I would applaude those people, rather than than harping on them like some other seems to be doing.

exercise doenst have to be work, i used to go to the gym after school with a mate of mine and we would just work out and have a couple laughs. good times.

besides, building strenght also helps with injury prevention , and everyone can use that

The only reason i want to get in shape more for next season is that so i can do MORE snowboarding...start of last season i could only go 3-4 hours before my legs gave out. As the season progressed i slowly was able to go a full 6-8 hours or so..and it was the bomb..not having to sit in the lodge nursing my wounds or always arriving at home super limping sore...and now theres the possibility of getting some BC experience with Snowolf next year if he doesn't run off to AZ...so gotta get in shape for all that hiking!

biking, running, weights, i really disagree about the whole muscle= less flexablilty cause it is just not true... people that goto the gym most likely stretch daily and are much less liekly to get injured than some one that does not lift and hence probably does not stretch. just don't get top heavy, keep it even... don't work out just for boarding so that you turn out with like massive legs and not being able to bench over 80lbs, it just looks wierd lol

dude i like that avatar pic... there are 2 types of muscle fibers that you can stimulate type I and Type II... one is for strength and agility and one is size and strength (someone can correct me if im wrong)... can anyone imagine Batista snowboarding...

do you guys realize that snowboarding itself is a leg and cardio excerise?

When i first started the season my legs were always sore and i got rly tired from hiking features. but after like 2 weeks my legs never hurt and i didnt have a problem hiking rails and jumps.

I snowboarded everyday for a good 6+ hrs a day, and i can tell you that snowboarding is definatly a excerise, even more so if you do alot of hiking and walking around while you snowboard.

Anyways idt you need to worry about working out to get ur legs in shape to last longer. just keep snowboarding and your legs will condition themselves!
