Snowboard & ski fitness program from GoPro

Tuesday, 11. 6. 2012  –  Category: Snowboarding

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

    Nice exercises – are they good for beginners? Or is this more for intense riders trying to take it to the next level? Thanks!

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
