Mobility Exercises to Improve S Turns in Snowboarding

>> Request an Appointment

Mobility is key when trying to get your S turns in on a snowboard. Both lumbar and hip rotation are necessary to lean into your edges and get the perfect carve. Immobility can cause too much stress on muscles and connective tissue in both the hips and lumbar spine leading to muscle strains and increased soreness after a day on the mountain. Here are some mobility exercises you can perform regularly to ensure your hips and low back have the rotation you need to shred it up on the slopes and remain pain-free.

Hip Circles (2 sets x 10 reps each direction, each side)

Lumbar Twist (2 sets x 10 reps each side)

Hip Rock Adductor Stretch (2 sets x 10 reps each side)

If you have pain, questions or are looking to expand your mobility routine, please reach out for a consultation with a physical therapist!
