Default Snowmobiling is a Work Out

Do you work out? What is everyone's thought on working out/fitness routines? We all know snowmobiling is a workout itself. Do you do anything else to stay fit? My question was sparked by a post I saw on one of these groups that asked about drinking energy drinks. Thought this would be a fun discussion as well.

3 months for me and I am feeling it!


I just started my PRE-Season fitness program.


Goal #1 is to drop 20lbs and get to 180 or below.
Then in October I will start a regular daily exercise program to start building up strength and endurance once again.

Weight lifting and high intensity workouts such as Crossfit are the absolute best to simulate what we do on the snow. We ride hard for maybe 10 mins or less a time with it often being 5 mins or less.

As we have seen many of the top riders use Crossfit and similar strategies to stay in shape. You dont need to go to a gym. There is plenty of free programming and coaching available. You do need some basics like a barbell, pull up bar, jump rope, and couple dumbells.

If you are interested I would be happy to help anyone get started with advice and recommendations.

Simply put the more you ger out and get active hiking, mtn biking, or swimming the better off you will be. Three days a week in the off season will make a tremendous difference.

Generally I do not workout by going to the gym etc etc. But I live a fairly active lifestyle, hiking/dirtbiking when im not sledding. Obviously all strength is good strength when your trying to dance with a 500# machine, so any degree of weight lifting/core strength is going to be helpful, just not my cup of tea.

I still put cardio and general endurance and ability to sustain activity as the most important thing. The more you ride the more you muscle the sled less and get stuck less, you use finesse instead of brute strength and struggling. Also, because we generally ride 1000's of feet higher in elevation then we live (especially for midwest guys coming to the mtns) Your lungs/heart are working OVERTIME trying to get oxygen to your muscles and keep your body working. So it doesn't matter how big and strong you are if you cant even catch your breath.

While doing anything be it sledding/hiking/dirtbiking/throwing hay bales, I like to focus on finding my peak sustainable effort level and try to hang there. Dont go nuts and wear yourself out in 5 minutes and have to sit and take a break and dont just lollygag. Try to focus on pushing hard for a long period of time. Keep your body working hard. Turn really anything into a little bit of a workout.

Just started back at the Gym about a month ago. Haven't been there in about 6 years (Wife and I had 4 boys in that time). I go with about 5 people from work during lunch time everyday and we do a class at Lifetime. Barbell Strength, No limits(taught by a cross fit instructor), and a Class called Shred. They have really been kicking my butt and i'm down about 12lbs in a month. Hope to be down another 35 ish by riding season. Should be a good year!

-12lbs in a MONTH is HUGE weight loss!
3lbs a week is serious.
