calf burn
 
i keep having extreme calf burn to the point i have to stop a short time down the mtn. i have it even going straight down the mtn and not turning. im running union bindings and a 172cm skunk ape.

Do calf exercises, stretch, and stay hydrated.

How upright are you standing? If you try to stand straight up you may be putting tension on your calfs that shouldn't be there. With knees well bent and a proper stance you shouldn't have calf burn.

I think the healthy burn that you should have after a day of boarding is in your thighs.

2 things I can think of.
1. Are you getting heal lift in your boots?
2. Are you turning toeside by bending the needs or standing up like doing calf raises?

my upper leg isnt burning but my back leg cramps by mid day. calves burn every run. wondering if i have a stnce issue or high back setup issue,

Todd2002 02-18-2014 12:38 PM

no heal lift. even burns while going straight down the mtn.

Have you adjusted your highbacks? Are the straight with the board?

riding union and have them set on 4. looking to switch to rear entry bindings next season. after riding at snowshoe for 3 days and seeing my friends half way down the mtn. before I'm in my binding.

Talking about the actual angle of the highback not the forward lean. If you are riding with angles on your bindings your high back should be straight with the board. So look down on the highback. The top of it should be straight with the edge of the board.. Makes sense?

i have my high back tilted forward not straight .
