Default Off Season Fitness

How do you keep fit off season? I live in Missouri, and we caught onto snowboarding the last 3 weeks. I want to keep up my muscle condition I've achieved.

I do intense cycling during the warmer seasons, and i swim alot (actual lap swimming, not splashing around in water and calling it swimming). that usually keeps me good to go

Basically you need to make a habit of going running or at least a weekly form of training.
Best exercises are...
jumping Squats ( leg power )
Running ( leg endurance)
Cycling ( leg power + endurance )
push ups ( builds wrists to resist impact)
abdominal work out ( alot of ab work is used in turning etc)

hope this helps, works for me !

I think working on flexibility is important but not too many people do it religiously (myself included).

All of the above are good, but I would suggest taking up wakeboarding. It's a brutal workout, and will keep you in great shape, plus it's way more fun then all that other stuff. If you live close to K.C. there is a cable lake so you don't even need a boat.

I really want to try wakeboarding. I've only heard good things.

I plan on biking and running a lot over the off season.

Wakeboarding sounds like a lot of fun but I couldn't see myself having the time to do it more than once a week at best. Do you get to do it frequently?
