I'm gonna go snowboarding for the first time of my life this year, for 5 days.
I'm going on feb. 8., and i just wanna know if you guys could give me some advice as to what i should be doing before i go, in order to make it more manageable? i've been skiing 3 times and i'm not extremely good at it, but i do know a little, i guess.
I heard it's really tough when you've never tried it before and you'll keep falling and falling and falling, and i should work out my legs/core and triceps (for getting up), i already work out regularly (mainly upper body though) so i just made a new workout schedule for the next month, but i basically wanna know what else i should do.
Is there a way to kind of simulate the snowboarding balance at home? I've got plenty of space in my living room so if it's something i'm gonna fall from, it won't be a problem since i won't hit anything but the floor. I heard you could stand on 2 tennis balls, but if thats just fake/a myth i wont go buy 2 :P
Anyway, you guys got some tips/tricks? I'd like to get the most of it and hopefully be able to ride it decently next year!
