There is only one purpose for exercising, to enhance the performance in what we all love to do. This is one motivation which never fades away with time. The following described body movements for snowboarders can be done at any place without the need of any essential equipment too. The sport requires enhanced development of the thigh and arm muscles. Also, strength and endurance has to be improved to ensure less injuries strike you during your playing. Note that the sets mentioned here are for the more general trainers, although depending on the athletes’ fitness levels, the most suitable exercises for them may vary.
They are essential as they help strengthening the hips, butt and the thighs. Getting off and riding the chairlift requires these muscles to be strong to bear the large amounts of stresses. The more you develop these through squatting, the more will be your endurance. Stand straight keeping your feet shoulder width apart from each other. Ensure that your weight is on your knees. Keep your back straight, as you sit down moving your knees out over to the toes.
The performance points are the same as in Squats but from the position of sitting down, you will need to jump extending your hips apart and then again landing back to the initial squat position; after this, stand again with your lower back tight and straight.
The lunges stresses the same muscles as in the case of squat but they ensure enhanced balance and focus more on the inner thighs. Forward lunges are more commonly done by athletes but backward lunges provide the same advantages but with an enhanced practice of balance. Keep your legs shoulder width apart at the beginning and then keep a long foot forward all the while ensuring that your back is straight and tight. The thigh must be parallel to the floor.
Single Dead Backlift
This exercise helps strengthen and improve co-ordination of the knee, hip and the ankle muscles. This in turn, ensures control and endurance. Put your weight bearing leg forward and squeeze the core of your body while pulling one leg back. The leg and the torso must be positioned parallel to the ground. Make sure you are held tight. At the initial stages, you can use a suitable support like a wall.
