Snowboard & ski fitness program from GoPro

I spotted a tweet from Jeremy Jones last night with a link to a post with the 3rd of 3 videos from his Further camp pals Bibi Tölderer-Pekarek and Mitch Tölderer.

I’ve been slowly ramping up my training, and will see about trying out the recommended routines here. A friend has recently been raving about a similar interval/circuit training approach, so keen to give this a go, starting at the gym tonight.

  • 60 seconds on each exercise, 20 seconds rest.
  • 3-4 laps.
  • Rest 2 minutes between laps.

Snowboard training session 1

  1. Gym ball leg curl – to prevent ACL injuries
  2. Rotational single leg squat – for leg power and back stablisation
  3. Gym ball forearm roll – for core strength
  4. Squat/squat jumps – for power and edurance
