Coffee in the morning on the drive to the hill and then a 5 Hour Energy shot at lunch to counteract the effects of the beers

Love drinking coffee. That's my go to morning beverage. Not a big fan of energy drinks, but when I do have them, it's pretty much only Red Bull. Other then that I just try to hydrate a lot with water.

GNC Mega Men Sport pills are good enough for me.

I'll just be pissing Mountain Dew all day.

Still pushin amongst unsuspecting individuals, eh Torpedo? I had to down an extra strength 5hr on my way to Lethbridge at 5am today. Just like crack. You gotta keep upping the dose.

As far as most Pre-Workout supplements go all they will do is make you hyper for a little while, if you aren't used to using them, and then increase the amount of blood that reaches your muscles. This is really only useful if you are going to do strength training. For snowboarding it isn't going to do much more than make you dehydrated. Maybe a bit of whey protein and soy protein after a long day at the mountain to help the muscles rebuild but it wouldn't help to terribly much.
The best thing you could do is eat a healthy meal and drink water before and after. Also I would suggest taking a few moments every once in awhile to stretch out your muscles. This will help get the lactic acid built up in your muscles out and then also keep your muscles from tightening up. I usually find myself doing this on the lift while I am riding. It is kind of awkward at first but you can do some simple stretches while waiting the ride up.

True but being conscious of staying hydrated helps a lot. And if you take the right PWO you can get an boost in mental focus which is why a lot are banned from sports being considered performance enhancers, so I'd give em more credit than making you just hyper . I think taking protein with some BCAAs would help immensely with recovery and repair. And I'd avoid soy protein. Google the effects it has in the male body. Too much to post about that's appropriate for this thread lol. But its good to see health conscious
