Hi, I'm TJ Pierce with and today we're going to talk about good leg exercises for snowboarders. When we talk about snowboarding, we want to look at a few things. One of the big things we need to understand is that snowboarding is a frontal and transverse plane dominant sport. So all that really means is we need to be really strong in our obliques, in our glute medius, our glute minimus and all the frontal plane stabilizers. The other thing we really need to go well as a snowboarder is dissociation. So we need to be able to do one thing with our lower body and another thing with our upper body. The final thing that's really important for snowboarders is to have very good tilting reflexes. And what that means is that's your ability to adjust to the moving ground. So as the snow kicks out from underneath you, as you hit the ground from the jump, you really have to engage your tilting reflexes so that you don't fall. And so what we're going to do today is we're going to work on the cortex and we're going to do a disassociated squat with rotation. So what we're going to do, we want to grab on to the handles of the cortex, you want to set yourself up in your stance be that regular stance or goofy foot stance. We're going to drop down into a quarter maybe a half squat depending on how deep you sit down on your snowboard, and then we're simply going to hang on tight to the bars and we're going to stay low in that squat and we're going to rotate our hips left and right as quickly but as smoothly as you can. I'm TJ Pierce with Pierce Family Wellness, and I hope this keeps your snowboard season injury free.
