My wife and I started the "Insanity" workout in the middle of last year's season and within weeks my leg stamina on the mountain was . Prior to that I would get leg burn 3/4 thru the day, and I would consider my self fairly athletic.

The "Insanity" workout is nuts, but man you'll great afterwards.

yes! stand on one of those half balls with one leg and strengthen all those ligaments. strong ankles make for good footwork.

also its simply all about core strength, balance, and flexibility. any core exercises you do should always involve some form of stability. that is what your abs are for anyway.

Hey Dave,

I have a blown out knee and terrible hamstrings as an ex footballer (Proper English Football), I have had several years of physio and the best thing in all that time was one of the balance pads/balls

1. Balance on it for 5-10 mins
2. Two leg squats 3 sets of 10
3. One leg squats 2 sets of 10 (swap legs)
4 Repeat above holding a weight of any sort with both arms out in front of you or two either side.

I surf 4 times a week off season and do the above a couple and my legs still burn first few days, its hard to replicate the exact muscles usage and movements. Sure you find with hockey you can do all the work in the gym you want but the first couple of training sessions back are always tough.

Good luck!!

I have one of these coming...
Bosu® Balance Trainer - Commercial: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Outdoors
It should help out ALOT! Together with the program....

You are right about hockey but it's alot about explosive power rather than sustained strength and stamina....

WOW

I sit on my arse playing COD all day everyday until the snows comes, i occasionally walk to the car, and from the car to the shop, or take away and back to the car and into the house...

But when the snow comes, i put in 8 hours a day 5 days a week minimum, and never struggle... Well ok, i do the 1st week, but after that it's all good...

You lot make me really feel like the lazy bum my g/f calls me all the time now....

Omg! 8hrs, 5 times a week??? Hang on.... Are you an instructor???
I'd be happy with 1hr a day.... I do try to get there once a week but sometimes it's just not possible....
Having said that, I don't need to wait for the snow.... (indoor slope)

Anyway, I have a question for all...
Why the heck do the backs of my arms hurt after riding for 3hrs.... The next day...???

Erm no, i am a bum, don't have a job, so snowboard everyday we have snow.

I would wakeboard in the summer, all summer, but that is reliant on my neighbour taking his boat out... Haha

Not sure why your arms would be aching though, maybe you fall a few too many times...??? I have not had that issue to be fair, unless i fall lots. Which may or may not happen at the start of a season... Haha

And then it is wrists that i have a problem with, broken them so many times now it is beyond a joke...!
