Snowboarded this weekend, my cafe/thy are KILLING ME!

So question.. I went snowboarding this weekend Friday & Saturday we stayed at a hotel up there(Granite Peak WI) And I was having trouble making it down the mile/mile & half run without my THY giving out on me..it got so tired I had to baby it all the way down(Back leg). So I woke up Saturday to go again my THY wasn't killing me so I decided to go, But I changed my back binding from 2 clicks to the right to one click from 0 and my front binding from 2 clicks from 30 to 15 & that seemed to help alot & I started putting more weight on my front foot. All these changes seemed to help alot but today I woke up & on my BACK leg my CAFE & my THY are omg I can barely walk. I'm curious if my bindings are set to far apart causing me to use my thy to much..? What do you guys think or maybe it's just because of my first time going this season and I need to get used to using these muscles again? All the other people I went with have no complaints about there thy bothering them.

Stretch before and after each ride, and you're hurting partly because you havn't ridden for x-amount of months either...trust me. I'm hurting right now too.

3 observations:

it is THIGH

and CALF

and you are profoundly out of shape!

do some squats and lunges to gain strength
and ALWAYS stretch to cool down and warm up EVERY DAY.

check exercises 1, 2 and 4 on the following link:

Five Fantastic Stretching Exercises

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

1st ride of the season's always killer, huh? I remember that from last year, but when I was going every weekend, after 8 hours of boarding I wanted more!..lol.

I've been working out my legs more during the off-season though, so i think I'll be better off this year.

Squats are great for building strength but you need endurance to last longer. Squats can work well for that too but you should be doing sets of 20 increasing weight as you get less tired. if you damn near collapse when you try to stand up after a set, you know you've done well. Stop if your muscles burn (not ache, burn).

Bikes work well for that especially after a good squat session.

First day of the season aches and pains. I'm familiar with these. Not much you can do at this point. Off-season strength and endurance training might help. You'll get your stance dialed in at some point that'll help prevent fatigue in the future. As far a long runs go... switch it up if you can. You know. Ride left foot forward then right foot forward. That seems to keep me from cramping. Especially on those traversing runs where there's not much turning involved.

But only if the individual trains properly.
I guess what I should have said was "A snowboarding specific strength and endurance routine will help improve one's on sn*w experience. Doing 50 push-ups once a week and going hiking 5 times before the season might help but I doubt it."

Ya i'm sure that didn't help but I can tell the difference between pain from that and it just plain getting tired. Half the reason was putting to much weight on my back leg & my bindings wern't set right.
