＜Easy Ways to Check your Stance＞
For those who want make things simple, here are tips on how to stand over the board.
This position is seen from the Toe or Heel.
Check your Triangle that made by your head and feet.
So you will be in a stable balance with your head above the center of the board.
Snowboarding is a sport, so naturally you use muscles when riding.
And it’s clear that muscle characteristics affect your performance.
Human muscles are actually divided into 2 types.
Here, I’ll simply explain the difference between the two types.
The Pros snowboard with stability.
They look like they never fall.
“How can I snowboard like that?”
How can intermediate snowboarders gain riding-sense close to that of the pros?
This time, let's think about the body's intuition from a mechanical stand point.
Pro-Snowboarding is stability.
You probably understand it as having good total balance right?
In order to maintain balance, you need to have a good base as the foundation.
Your “footing” is your base for the majority of the time you are snowboarding.
Strong footing makes up for a good portion of this total balance.
This is Part 2 of my previous tutorial, “Do Freestyle Snowboarders Need Physical Training?”
This time, let's think about what kind of results we can derive from Running.
When I say, “derive,” I'm talking about the results you can get out of your heart and lung function.
When you strengthen your heart and lung function, what kind of benefits are there?
They can be found in the increased amount of blood that is pumped at one time from your heart. You could also say that it's the amount of oxygen that is pumped into your bloodstream.
It's probably easier to think of it as having trained your heart muscles.
This is something that most snowboarders in the world contemplate over.
After all, it is an Olympic sport... Shouldn't you train for it just like any other competitive event?
Do the top athletes actually train?
I can't say for sure because I don't understand how much the pros actually train myself.
It's extremely hard to tell to how much physical training actually influences performance.
Some of my students belong to the Japanese National Team, and they continue to train hard.
On the other hand, some of my other students, who participate in the video world, don't train at all.
Personally, I would say that physical preparation equates to snowboarding on a better snowboard.
Again, when comparing snowboarding and physical training to a car, it's like building a car with better parts.
I’m going to answer some of the question you guys asked on my blog!
This time, how effective off season training is.
I’ve heard that skateboarding and the trampoline are good as off season practice but, which one do you think is better? I’d really like to know!
It’s a good question.
These two activities are well known for improving your snowboarding skills during the off season.
But why do these 2 in particular help you improve?
Knowing the reason will surely help you further improve.
Keep being fit until your first day snowboarding on the hill!!
Stimulate your muscle 4 days a week.
You don't have to work such hard.
But you can try working on lower body exercise such as 15 times squat x 3 sets.
Lower body and core are key to control your balance over the board!!
