Default Fatigue

Is it normal to get sore quads/thighs before finishing one run? I don't live around a big mountain resort, runs are fairly short, if you bomb them it's probably under 3 minutes max? maybe 5 on the longest one I've been on around here?

I tend to strive for technically correct riding, so I'm really using my knees to push out on a turn, then bending them up close to a near crouch between transitions (cross under)

The problem is, riding like this is really really tiring. I can still do fast turns without this much of conscious/extreme knee movement, or not really at all (skidded turns or carving)

what should I be doing? do whatever "feels" right or keep trying to use my knees as much as I'm doing now?

I sometimes exaggerate the cross under movement to the point it doesn't feel natural just to make sure I don't get into the habit of riding with static knees.

If you don't use those muscles very often they are not conditioned. Riding will condition them over time and you will be fine.

I ride 6 times/week and have ridden about 45 times this season so far. I don't think it's from lack of riding lol.

Then you're just a pussy. HAHAHA...just kidding. You may be just pushing it to hard. When i bomb runs i just point it and send it. If you're going to try and slalom the whole run of course your legs will be tired.

Then I don't know how there is any possible way you can be sore. This should be like walking around to you. Idk.... you got me there.

I agree that carving a whole run can make u sore, but not if your doing it 6 days a week ???

Serious right....


I don't know what the hell is wrong other then your to tense and over working your body.... Snowboarding isn't that demanding once you figure out how to make it easy on yourself.
