In this video, Ben shares four movements to improve your leg and core strength for snowboarding. These will also help you to keep you away from injury on the mountains.


  • Low side-to-side lunge: This works well as a warm up. Start high and go lower as you get warmer.
  • Corkscrew lift: This helps you to prepare for the rotational aspects of being on the board.
  • Drop lunge: This works your legs asymmetrically and helps strengthen your hips too.
  • Step deck squat: This will get you prepared for getting off the lift or getting up after you've strapped into your board!


Give these a go and see how they feel!
