Off Season Workouts
 
I've been working some of these exercises from Toni Beretski into my routine and they're great.

went to watch...then I saw it was posted by Outside Magazine...then when I was finally able to stomach that....he was wearing a Raider's jersey :storm:

Cons aside, looks like a good typical core work out. Something that should be done at home...not the gym :giggle:

I'm sorry if this is gonna derail the f%#k outta this thread, but what have you got against Outside mag? (...aside from their style & content of utter corporate, yuppie, consumer oriented commercialism!)


Years and years ago, I subscribed to that Mag. when it first came out. Back when it was called "Mariah Outside!" (...Outdoors?) That was over 35+ years ago! :dunno: :D

I may have misspelled Mariah. (...'mercin edumacation don'tcha kno!) ;)

I believe It was meant to be a reference,.. An old hippie reference, to the song lyric "...and they call the wind Mariah!"
It was a pretty decent outdoor mag for the time. If a bit "New Agey!" But it changed to Outside fairly soon after. It actually took a few years before it started changing to a very "consumerism" oriented,.. kind of an Outdoor as "fashion and fad" over true Outdoors as a lifestyle kind of mag.

I haven't subscribed to it for decades now. Only occasionally flip thru the gear and climbing guides at the newstand when I see them.


...however, they do still publish some interesting workout and fitness information from time to time. :D

haha shit derail indeed. Idk if you still follow them at all, but their articles have become absolute sh*t. They've become incredibly short sighted, biased, and just straight up misinformation. Instead of providing real articles for outdoors enthusiasts, they've resulted to publishing articles that are straight mainstream concepts, with zero actual insight or experience on their topics. I eventually got blocked from their fb after a criticizing rant on some article that was complete BS :giggle:

But really all you have to do is read the article's comments and you'll see the amount of dissatisfaction they're accumulating

I'm not doing snowboard specific exercises but I did start the P90x program this week. I'm down 5 lbs but most of this is to a super clean diet.
I figured I'd try something different and I have some friends that have done the P90x with good results.

My 90 days will be over beginning of fall so I should be good for snowboarding.

I've always been a proponent of a variety of crosstraining activities.

Lifting and these workout programs (i.e. P90, Insanity, etc) are great but are you really having as much fun as you could be doing these?

Mountain biking guys and gals. That's where its at.

If you enjoy mountain biking :dunno: For me I'd much rather be in a gym then out biking. So yes I'm having as much fun as you mountain biking.

the only thing that's gonna get you ready for boarding is more experience. That really is the end game of it all. If you're looking for off season activities that help with boarding, it will inevitably be something board related, i.e.: Skating (any variation of) or Surfing. Obviously exercising is something that will give you an advantage, but that isn't an off season "thing". That's a life style. Personally, I long board, and it helps a TON. I also use balance bars to practice my jibbing off seaon :thumbsup:
