I do snowboarding 2 hours/day three times a week and I was wondering if it really counts for cardio. If not, what could I add to my daily routine such as weight training or cardio? Other days I alternate cardio (aerobics) and weight training (upper body, lower body, then total body) . The problem is I don’t really have time for 1 hour training myself the days that I do snowboarding. Can anyone answer my question please? thank you 🙂
Participating in snowboarding doesn’t guarantee weight loss, but a moderate- to high-intensity session does burn a significant number of calories. A 150-pound person burns almost 430 calories in an hour-long moderate session, while a vigorous series of runs burns about 570 calories per hour. Burn off 3,500 calories more than you consume, and you can lose a pound.
