How To Improve Muscular Endurance – More Fun In The slopes!

Are you tierd of always having to take breaks when you are snowboarding? Well, maybe this is because your muscular endurance isn’t the best. Your legs and calves may hurt a bit, as well as your but and shoulders. This used to be the case in my situation all the time.

Here are some workout tips on how you can improve your muscular endurance, and make your snowboarding experience a lot better!


Getting stronger is the key…

The first tip I want to discuss with you is why getting stronger is so important. Improving your muscular endurance is impossible without strenght! Strenght should be your number one priority and is the key to achiving any other fitness goal. Imagine strenth as the foundation of a building. Without the foundation, there would be no place for the rest. If you don’t have strenght, there is no place for your “improve your muscular endurance”. Strenght simply makes your body feel lighter and allows you to control it much easier with less effort.

Exercises to improve muscular endurance:
  • Push-ups
  • Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Running

Progressive overload

Progressove overload is the best way for you to work out and get the most out of your session. This will make your goal of improveing muscular endurance, way easier and much faster. The words “progressive overload” really means that you increase the volume, resistance, length or distance each workout. If you were to lift the same or run the same distance each workout, it would in the long terms yield you no benefit at all. The goal is to progress so don’t ruch it. Take your time.


Resting days – the most important part of your training

Resting days are just as important as the training days in my opinin. On the rest days you let your body recover and “absorb” the work you have done. Rest days are extremly important and prevents you from hitting plateus. Resting also recovers your nervesystem, which is necessary for you to hit new PRs.
Many people ignore rest days completly. This is not benefitial for your body, and you lose a lot of progress by not resting.

To summerize, if you want to improve your muscular endurance in the most efficient way. Working out with the key exercises above, doing progressive overload and resting will lest you achive this fast and easy!

    I agree muscular endurance is the best way to reduce soreness and have more fun on the mountain. I only snowboard about once per season and when I do i always get crazy sore. When I’m on the mountain, my calves, feet, and quads always hurt and the day after I am always sore. I am a competitive powerlifter, so strength is not the issue for me, I need more muscular endurance.

    Wow you certainly seem to know your stuff and it’s an excellent idea to take the injury and soreness out of the equation. I’m sure many people will thank you for that.

    The pictures look great and work well with the text. I really couldn’t find anything bad about it – your English is also really good.
