What kind of strength training should be employed for snowboarding?

The Importance of Training

U.S. Snow boarding conditioning coach Heath Van Aken says he constantly pounds into his athletes the importance of proper strength training. There are a lot of injuries in the shoulders, lower backs and ankles that keep athletes off the snow for the whole season. Although muscle strength gained from squats, lunges and leg-presses is valuable for boarders, use low weights so your knees aren't left vulnerable from overuse.
