Indo Board Training w/Mads Jonnson + Paul Hiniker on the Indo Board Gigante Cushion Yesterday we had the pleasure of working with snowboarding World Record Holder (longest jump 187 feet) Mads Jonnson and his personal fitness/strength and conditioning coach, Paul Hiniker. Mads is considered one of , if not the best, freeride snowboarders in the world. Mads has the good fortune of working with reknown action sports trainer Paul Hiniker, a guy that is not only incredibly well educated when it comes to improving human performance in board sports athletes, but as you can see in the video, he walks the walk too! Paul put Mads through a series of exercises on the new IndoFLO Gigante’ cushion with the Indo Mini Pro deck on top of the cushion. According to Paul, these products create an environment of instability that almost exactly simulates the unstable environment that one encounters in most any boardsport. This instability forces Mads to use the stabilization structures of the feet, ankles, knees and core. The end result is a workout that challenged Mads’ strength, stability, fitness and neuromuscular response. What is even more amazing about this is the fact that Mads is currently nursing a broken humerus and has very little use of his left arm and shoulder. The fact that Mads can perform these exercises and still remain stable and balanced not only speaks volumes about his talent and fitness but also illustrates the point that balance and stability have very little to do with upper body movement and everything
