Snowboard Fatigue?

Does anybody else feel fatigue, muscle aches, headaches, sick, and weak after a full day of snowboarding? Is it because I'm out of shape? I find snowboarding one of the most physically and mentally draining sport there is. The second I get in my car to go home I feel like shit. Anybody else experience this every time?

I'm not complaining. When I'm just freeriding all day it's not that tiring for me. But when I start doing tricks and presses it tires the shit out of me. Usually I don;t feel like shit until in get in the car though, that's when it hits me.

You never get tired? really? I'm talking about 6 hours of riding non-stop.

The only times I get tired are deep pow days and it's mainly my fault. Sorry, but buttering through deep pow is just too fun not to do it!

Pressing in powder is too easy. buttering on the hardpacked groomed snow is when you feel the burning sensation in your leg.

Yeah man I feel you.

I used to have similar (may a little less intense tho) fatigue issues after full days of riding.

I used to get up at 5ish am, drive up to Bear, get on the lift by 8:45ish, ride until 1:30 pm, get lunch, then continue riding from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm. Then drive back home.

Days like that definitely left me feeling pretty beat

--

Now I like to take more breaks and ride a little more laid back, just having a good time, not trying to squeeze every last ounce of snowboarding out of the day like I used to...

By the sounds of it though, I think you could probably benefit from exercising regularly (like run 2 miles every other day, to increase endurance) and eating healthy. Big breakfast high in protein and then follow it up with 4 small-sized meals spaced out throughout the day. Should keep your body fueled pretty well and at least take care of those headaches

Also, sometimes, I like to post up in my car after lunch (round 1:30 pm) and take a 30 minute nap...pretty refreshing...
