Snowboard Butters & Presses – Off Season Training
By training off the snow you’ll have the time and repetition to master the movements and build the strength needed to flex your board for the snowboard butters and presses.
For off season training, I’m using a half foam roller, and my snowboard has a medium flex with a rating of 4.
To get started do a quick warm up to get your legs and body moving. Notice how I’m bouncing back and forth and alternating my weight over my boards nose and tail.
The benefit of off season training is being able to master the movements. For snowboard butters and presses the most important movement, is the ability to move your wait around your board. For the tail press, move your weight over the tail of your board by bending your back leg, moving your hips over your tail, and keeping tension on your front leg to flex your board. For the nose press bend your front leg, move your hips over your nose, and keep tension on your back leg to flex your board.
By repeating these movement you’ll build the strength, that you need to pull off these trick on the snow. When I first starter training snowboard butters and presses off snow, I did find it hard to get deep into press and to practice for very long. But each time I practice it became easier to press my board and I was able to train longer.
Off season training will pay off when it comes time to take you presses to the snow. You’ll be able to get deeper into press and hold your butters for longer.
If you’ve done some off season training, it would be awesome to see your progression. Connect on with me on Instagram and use the hashtag snowboard training to share your photos and videos. It would also be cool to get some feedback any ideas for training videos you want to see made next. Check out more training and tutorial videos by clicking the link in the corner. Have fun out there training! And I’ll talk to ya later.
