Pre-Season Training

So what are people doing to get fit for the upcoming season? Its a month or so away for us in north america so i'm getting on it!

Anyone have any snowboard specific tips?

Recovery is also a good thing to discuss, how do you deal with recovering from a heavy session of training. I know the theory but two days later i'm crazy sore. Eat well, light cardio, stretching etc

I've been in rehab for a ruptured achilles, and now at the 5 month mark i'm working hard to get my calf strength back and get some cardio fitness going on.

I'm also trying to work on general leg strength/endurance and flexibility at the same time.

Easy on the beer, stop smoking cigs, not eating fast food...

Seriously though, what I used to do is whenever I had a good workout session I made sure to stay hydrated throughout the session then if possible, sit in a got tub for about 20 minutes. The next couple days you just gotta make sure you are getting all your vitamins proteins and carbs and your body should be feeling pretty good. There is nothing you can do though if you over work your muscles. Gotta stay reasonable, even if there is a super hott girl in the vicinity.

graphta.. since your also in vancouver... i start my preseason conditioning sept. 1st and go til first session on the hill. I mix it up with the following options but generally do 2 or 3 days per week (Like every other day ).

- grouse grind 1 or 2 times per week. I dont start the grind til it gets colder (like now.).

- twist conditioning 1x per week ... Sports Conditioning, Sports Training, Sports Fitness Training, Fitness Training, Athletic Training | Balance, Agility, Speed - Twist Conditioning .. no i dont work there... Twist is top notch, highly regarded, no doubt about that. Thier clients include many elite and pro athletes.. and joes like me.

- local community center gym once a week. cheap... $4.00

- "boot camps" there are lots of them at any community center, which means reasonably priced. I pay $8. an outing. Its outdoor stuff at local parks. First time for me was last week. Its ok... something different/cheap/pretty intense. Beware.. mostly women in these groups.

That twist stuff looks interesting. I'm already paying for gym membership so I need to look at exploiting that further I think. They run classes but i've always hated training that way. Probably stupid but that's my programming

Cross-fit. I've only been doing it for just over 7 months and I'm probably in the best shape I've ever been in. It's a great full body workout with tons of focus on core and legs which are key.

Cross-fit gyms are popping up everywhere now.

I could make up some hilarious fictional exercise called 'the grouse grind' (or a dance move?) but really its a hike/climb up Grouse mountain in Vancouver
