  • What does everyone do (exercise wise) to prepare for skiboarding season?

    Just wondering how everyone prepares their legs for the season. I've finished a P90x workout, so i just like doing Legs/Back routine 2-3 times a week.

    Unfortunately I didn't prepare for this season, and I'm paying for it. I'm in the worst shape I've been in for probably 20 years.

    If you do P90X, that means you are in good shape for the season. I've done a couple rounds in the past, but you wouldn't know it now. Any hoo...the leg workout is great with the wall squats and all the lunges, not to mention all the core work.

      cardio session every day, plus weight sessions pretty much every day. not really for skiboard season, more for overall fitness on a daily basis.
      i find that training 365 days a year lets me do any sports i want, when i want. being fit enables you to get the most from any sport

              i finished the 90 days right before my trip to Utah last year. Thank God i did, i wouldn't have lasted all week!

              I figure there's only 3 months out of the year that i can do this. I better be ready so i'm not exhausted after a few hours!

                  Biking. Also, luck that's held together with scotch tape.

                    I am a strength and conditioning specialist and to get in ski shape you should focus on high repetitions with resistance 12-15 reps per set. Also spin class is a great way to develop lower body endurance. Isometric abdominal exercises. If you are a jibber and also do a lot of jumping you might want to try plyometric trainy aswell.

                    Squats
                    Squats with balance (bosu , foam pad etc)
                    Lunges
                    Side lunges
                    Crossover step up.
                    Inner thigh machine (adduction, adductor)
                    Single leg balancing exercises .

                    Let menknow if you have questions .

                        I workout year-round so I'm more or less "in shape" all the time - but back in November I started focusing more on my lower body muscles. I do squats on the BOSU, leg extensions, ham curls, adductor/abductor machine, glute machine, calf machine and leg press. Plus I do a ton of core work for balance (bicycle crunches on the BOSU, ball pikes, roll-outs, etc). I also do recumbent biking to give my knees a break. Year-round I do Zumba, Yoga and Pilates plus misc cardio (running, biking, elliptical) and full-body weight training. I have focused more on exercises for skiboarding this year and I am definitely noticing a positive difference already this season

                          I’m pretty regimented in my pre and during the season exercise program, focusing on making sure I keep my body fueled with the right foods for ultimate on slope performance.

                          Breakfast: Vodka in chilled glass slightly shaken by my trembling hand.

                          Mid-morning snack: Scotch

                          Lunch: Gin, assortment of fried cheese products, and two cigarettes to ensure I have the daily recommend does of carcinogens.

                          Afternoon snack: Swig of whisky from the bottle

                          Dinner: Wine from a box, and supreme pizza so I get my veggies.
