Summer Snowboard Workout/Exercise Tips

I'm thinking I'm 4 months out from getting back on the snowboard for my third season! Geeeeeked! I stay in shape but just by running, doing some core exercise and minimal lifting. I'm not rediciously flexible and I don't do much lower body strength and conditioning. I was trying to think about how I could tweak the routine to get this old body ready for all the ice in Michigan or better yet, Powder Mountain in February! Any ideas from you veterans would be appreciated!

Functional leg strength exercises like squats and lunges are great for developing muscle and endurance (especially for riding powder). If jumps are your thing, explosive power exercises like box jumps will help with ollies and poping, and keep up with the core and cardio.

I'd do some leg work to strengthen the quads and hams and work the abs. All the rotations, presses, buttering, etc would be good to have strong abs and legs.

Don't skip upper body. I do a full resistance training program year round (weekend warrior) and it really helps build up resistance to slams. I took some bad ones last season and never really got hurt. You don't have to do 5x5's or anything gut wrenching like that, but a good pyramid on some of the core motions once a week wouldn't hurt.

I agree a full body work out too. Kzoospade said he didn't have lower strength so that is why I suggested hitting the legs more than upper body or core, to help catch up his lower body. There are a ton of leg workouts that would be great right in the garage so no gym membership needed.

True. Buy one of those mini parachtutes and run try to sprint 25 yards in a pool.

lots of testicular stimulation to keep your balls fresh so you can commit and not puss out. And maybe a little something to keep from getting fat. IMO, the jock mentality has no place in board sports! Just ride, MANNNNNN!!!!
