Training for Snowboarding (aka I Need an Incentive)

Maybe my eyes are still starry from our “epic” winter last year,

but I’ve been dreaming of getting back on my board since September. Season passes have been purchased.

I would love a new jacket, helmet, and goggles…and Chris says I need a new board (I can’t let go of my Gnu Factory Choice – yes, from 2002). But, all capitalism aside, I’d rather be prepared physically. This year, I actually want to train for snowboarding. How novel!

Maybe I’ll give progress reports, although I don’t know how to measure my progress. I guess I’ll know when I get on my board…

Anyway! I’m super picky about my workouts because I like to be able to divide them up into circuits if they aren’t already. These two I’ve deemed worthy:

Both of these have options to rest 1 minute between sets/exercises, which I probably won’t do, but other than that, I don’t anticipate modifying them.

One thing I’d never realized was that biking is great off-season training for snowboarding. I love being efficient!
