Indo Board Training with Mads Jonsson

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 the best freeride snowboarders in the world and has the good fortune of working with reknown action sports trainer Paul Hiniker.  Paul is not only incredibly well educated when it comes to improving 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 board sports.  This instability forces Mads to activate and strengthen the stabilization structures of the feet, ankles, knees and core.  The end result is a workout that challenges Mads’ strength, stability, fitness and neuromuscular response.  You may notice that Mads is currently nursing a broken humerus and has very little use of his left arm and shoulder.  His ability to perform these exercises with this injury not only speaks volumes about his talent and fitness but also illustrates the fact that balance and stability have very little to do with upper body movement and everything to do with proper form and posture and effective use of the legs, hips and core (torso).  Visit the Indo Board YouTube channel to see more videos highlighting the use of Indo Board products in action sports training.
