  • When we were kids we’d mount our Burton Flex snowboard bindings onto our skateboards and ride my 1/2 pipe. We called it hospital boarding for obvious reasons. ����☠️

  • I need to fix my abs.. I ripped a lower ab last season… I swallowed as much high strength pain meds as poss, used physio tape and ‘enjoyed’ the rest of my snowboard holiday.. I totally didn’t think abs needed any work… I’ve got 6 weeks til my trip.. thanks dude… needed a board specific trg session!..

  • The first exercise was meh…need some weight. 2nd was okay. 3rd was okay, both are more cardio. 4th can be done with weights and pulley to get a good core and a nice 6 pack. 5th is a cardio type thing. Better to do squats and lunges with weights to build muscles.
    Just my take.

  • Bro what? Why not just use a real snowboard?! I feel like this is “How to train for snowboarding until you can afford to buy all your snowboarding gear” lol.
    Or just go longboarding. This video is so confusing haha.

  • This is my first snowboard purchaseわ and I loved it, the price was reasonable and the board is perfect for me to grow with as I learn and become better. I don’t know if it’s the factory wax or the fact that I’ve always just used a rental before, but this board was super slippery it was almost as if it had a mind of its own. I was doing 360’s unintentionally.

  • just curious, for the exercise at 2:08, should you be putting the hurdle the other way round? that’s so to let you ‘kick down’ the hurdle instead of tripping over it should your jump happen to not clear over the top.
    thank you for the exercise demos nonetheless, i’ve incorporated quite a lot of it into my exercise routine.

  • I don’t know what you’ll expected but great job anyway lol. Good for balance from the looks of it. and definitely finna so this lol

  • Or don’t be a giant pussy, do squats (and squat variations), deadlifts, and various core/ mobility routines, and hit the trampoline. The only pro I’m aware of who does this dumb shit is seb toots. I think that says enough.

  • Hey my pants are really clunky and wide what pants do you recommend should I buy the tapered pants? Also what helmets do you recommend for wide and “tall” goggles

  • As if I wasn’t jealous enough at your being able to snowboard year-round and use all the best gear out there-I’m jealous where you live! (haha, or, wherever you filmed this…)

  • As far as training in the summer, Onewheel is the closest you can get to snowboarding. It’s expensive, but super fun and really feels like snowboarding once you get carving figured out.

  • I’m sure this works and everything. I even do some of these exercises myself.

    Yeah that guy is henched out…

    But do you think those Japanese kids (in Sochi) did all of this, or did they just practice riding 😉 just curious.

    There is no need for such big muscles. Shaun White is skinny and he is one of the best. I have yet to see a beast elite snowboarder… Maybe Travis Rice is ripped out under his clothes, but I doubt it.

    I agree with the explosive training, though. But the video is gonna send out a message that you need muscles like that to be good.

  • Kevin, what size sandbox helmet do you run? I’m a medium head. Do you recommend a larger size to accommodate for the beanie underneath?

  • T.J did the same thing in an older video. I think it’s great. The bottle makes it more challenging. I think if you want to train for tricks it’s great. It should do great for keeping your balance on point.

  • Hi Kevin! Really nice vid! I’m pickign up my first board soon and I’m torn between the Bataleon EvilTwin 2020, the Ride Warpig and the Ride Twinpig.
    I’m an intermediate rider going into groomers and park. Which board would you suggest from above that will make my progression easier?

  • Come on Kevin, drink the fanta fill it all the way with water. Water doesn’t compress the air in the top does. Bonus tip bike tire tubes instead of duct tape, so you don’t wreck a pair of shoes. Also dieing at burnings warehouse reference lol

  • I wonder has anyone tried mounting snowboard bindings onto a skate deck? I been pondering on that idea or get a used a kid sized snowboard but I’m worried that might be too soft and actually break it.

  • I’m totally going to do this, thanks so much for the tip. Heading to Japan in February for my 2nd time ever snowboarding and my first time was almost 15 years ago, so I’m desperate for anyway to get some training in before heading up the mountains.

  • This is better without the soda in the bottle lmao… done this one n pvc n also built a wooden balance rail as well… the wooden one worked out the best with the skate deck…

  • I actually tried this with actual snowboard+binding with sb boots.
    Yep, its super hard to balance on the bottle when you are beginner. I did it on grass so the bottle dont move as freely as on solid ground.
    But this setup is heavy. I think i need to go online n buy used snowboard deck

  • Hey Kevin,

    This stuff is cool but you can improve it and achieve more realistic feeling with using real snowboard instead of skateboard, moreover your “rail” shouldn’t rolling and be static as well. This DIY stuff feels more like balance board and I definitely would suggest to play with it, but you can’t really feel how board bouncing because of nose or tail, or feel boots. The way I did static “rails” is simple buy PVC sewer pipe, put some wood sticks inside the pipe to make it stiff and strong and build wood supports for the pipe. Then just put your boots and snowboard and jump on this pipe like your jump on real pipe:) It’s a bit dangerous for the first time, but it really helped me for boardslide 270 out, it really feels the same.

    You have to try it, it would be a good content for your channel and it’s really useful stuff.

  • I have a question!! I was trying on the smith squad xl and they seem like they’re nice on the face but I had a gap on my nose. I don’t think I need an Asian fit. but I was wondering what would you recommend. I want a cylinder google but a good view and comfortable the xl even looked kinda small on me and I have a medium-sized head. what do you think?

  • want to share this workout which is also great for offseason snowboard workout: glad we see the same need for snowboard lovers!

  • actually looks like ive been doing tricks on my board! niiiice hahahaha love both of use man cant wait untill this madness is over and we can all enjoy life again

  • for snowboard exercise at home, I think it’ll still be very useful if trained WITH a snowboard. How do you think of this training system? ​​

  • Honestly, for indoor snowboard training, I think this could be a great training system. How do you think? ​​​

  • Shit this isn’t needed just do some basic streches before you hop on your board and you’re good to go. To train your balance on your board do nose or tail presses on your floor then put pressure on your heel or toe side and try to balance on what ever edge you are on. For you legs, after like 7 days on the mountain all the muscles you use for snowboarding will be worked up, the first 3 days suck but after that your legs won’t get tired as much as the first day. After 14 days on the mountain your legs will be good to go. Nothing can prepare better than actual experience on your board.

  • That was insane. This workout will help you avoid injuries on the slopes. But Im not so sure
    that its good for your knees. It will also burn off any unwanted fat and keep your heart in great shape.

  • Gavin i have to tell you that you are a really great trainer, very functional training, with strength, plyometrics, proprioception. Greetings from Spain!

  • Damn some great workout man! Thanks for the video, now I got some inspiration for my exercises to use it during my internschip physiotherapy:)

  • Do you have a printout of the exercises that are done? I am taking some of this and building my own program based off of this and a few others I have found.

  • For the deadlifts? We gradually increased weight until he hit his 4repmax. Much safer than going for 1rep maxes.
    Everything else can be done at 15reps, for 3 full sets.

  • This workout is sick. Do you have a print out of some of the progressions of sets. I would like to use this in my crossFIT routines.

  • the barbell exercise at 1:01 to 1:03, I thought the hands needed to be interlaced on the outside of the plates, I’m up to about 60kgs or 3x20kg plates for 5 sets of 2 explosive reps. Is it easier or harder having the hands interlaced on the inside of the plates? That’s a cool way of doing it
