I'm working up to snowboarding for the first time in about 15 months, after a pretty nasty fracture of my femur. Hitting one of the indoor slopes in the UK on Friday - still not sure how my leg/hip is going to handle it.
Most of my prep work at the moment is based around general strengthening of the leg and hip - but I suppose that's useful in general for snowboarding. Cardio and stretching too. When it comes to training I just take a day off if I feel tired...
First real trip of the season for me will be January, so hoping to be in good condition by then.
- Skateboard/longboard all summer
- Bike to work when it doesn't rain (only about a 15 minute ride)
- Indoor rock climbing
- Various gym workouts, lunges, squats, weight training for upper body. I have my core routine, but I also just google around and try new stuff every few days.
- A little bit of mountain biking, only a few hours every other week
Once the snow falls though, I pretty much just snowboard
