Red face Excercise in summer to help you board?

Hey hey!

There's about 3 months til season starts again here.. and as snowboarding is the only excercise I do I've turned to crap over the summer.. So I've joined the gym..

What are some great things to do for ya body to improve your boarding?
I heard yogas pretty good.. but what else? (Besides the obvious just improving your fitness)

Cheers.

core muscle exercises (any kind of stabilization) I also do lots of torsional (oblique) exercises and really focus on the lower abdominals (leg raises (add weights if u want)), I also run 5 miles 3+ times a week this not only gets your legs into shape, improves balance, but also allows you to shredddd all day super hard. Which means you will progress faster!!

Learn to use the forum search feature - it is your friend.

Searching "snowboard workout" gives you these:

Summer workout other than Skateboard

Snowboarding books and weight training.

These two threads have a lot of good answers, no need to regurgitate the same ones in a new thread, right?

Nothing to be sorry for... I wasn't trying to be a dick, just letting you know how powerful that tool can be - a lot of people don't know it exists / how to use it!
