Snowboarding Endurance Training

Spring break is coming up and I want to make sure that I get the most out of my trip. Currently I'm at approximately 600ft above sea level, so I know a high elevation will take its toll on me. I'm going to Utah for the break for 5 days of straight boarding so I want to make sure that I'm in best "mountain" shape for the trip. Currently, I'm at 152 at 5'10 and I can run a good 1.5 miles without starting to drag but I know I'm not in shape to endure 5 straight days. With the vertical drop, I will be boarding around 8500ft above sea level and I know my Texan endurance is nothing compared to a mountain or high elevated one and I have about 35 days until my flight.

Does anyone have some good exercises for getting into prim and proper shape for maximum enjoyment at that elevation? I'll be sure to plow back the water when I'm up there.

Thanks!

Do 100 squats per day for 5 days straight with a mid/light weight about 10 days or so before. This will get your body used increased blood flow, anaerobic endurance, and flushing out lactic acid and redcude DOMS. Keep up with the cardio as well.

If you are riding with friends from Texas, you will probably be ok because you will be at the same pace. Riding with locals will be a lot more tiring.

Alright thanks for the input, when you say light to medium weight are you thinking about 20-50?

About 1/2 your weight. Make sure you have 8-10 days of recovery after your last day of squats, because you will be very sore. Keep up with the cardio until 2-3 days before your trip to keep the blood flowing.

This should help...
