Flywheel Training Snowboarding

The kBox4 targets many important aspects of elite snowboarders’ strength and conditioning needs and is already used in training by Olympic athletes as well as national snowboarding teams.

The possibilities of flywheel training on the kBox highly correlate with the physiological requirements of competitive snowboarding, offering accessible training for eccentric strength, anaerobic capacity and training in sport-specific angles.

USAGE

When going downhill and making turns, snowboarders have to absorb, hold and push really high loads with their lower body. What’s more, the ability to repetitively perform turns at high speeds will directly affect the athlete’s overall performance. Thus, having a strong lower body and being able to manage very high loads is key at the top level. 

By using large flywheels (i.e. high inertia) on the kBox, snowboarders can grind through really heavy concentric and eccentric sets with a constant load in a full, or sport-specific limited range of motion, and build strength and muscle mass.

The ergonomic design of the harness allows athletes to unload their spine in a sport-specific position during squats and also work side to side to mimic the movement and angles of snowboarding.

BENEFITS

The versatility, efficacy and mobility of the kBox are three key reasons why pro snowboarders choose to incorporate kBox and flywheel training into their programming.

High-level snowboarding athletes who travel roughly half, or more, of the year, never know what kind of equipment they will have access to on the road. With the kBox, efficient and supporting sport-specific training is easier to bring than a pair of snowboards, building a gym wherever the athlete is.

Also, the kBox can be an ideal and powerful tool for post-activation potentiation at the top, just before a world championship race for example.
