It takes approximately 8 weeks for muscles to strengthen thus best to plan ahead to allow your body to be in the best shape before the season starts. Given the demands of snowboarding, a focus of these exercises are eccentric and isometric based exercises as well as some cardiovascular fitness so you can board from first to last lifts!Key exercises to prepare the body for snowboarding focus on the lower body and core strength include:
Body weight squats with 3-5s hold
Romanian deadlifts with dumbbells
Cardio of your choice e.g., walking, stairmaster, running etc
