The Health Benefits of Snowboarding

Well in a Health Article I found, there is lots of information describing the many health benefits of Snowboarding. Like all the muscles it improves like the ankles, calves, quads, and your core muscle groups like your arms and shoulders. Snowboarding also makes you more flexible from all the bending you have to do to balance yourself at high speeds, and the more flexible your joints are, the less likely you are to break any bones in other things you do. Though there is possibility of head injury, all you have to do is just wear a helmet and you'll be safe from most injuries, and if you really want to be safe then you could just stay home, because there’s danger in almost everything you do. All this just proves my point in why snowboarding is such a great activity to exercise in your daily life, it properly lists and explains much more benefits of snowboarding and how it can improve your life like how it can increase your concentration by having to look for paths of ice or the way the moves for a path to go down, concentration is used in everything you do and this is just more that can add more to your life. While it misses a few things like how great it is for recreation and relaxation when you are feeling down or how it is good for the environment as it brings in money, plus it can burn more than 500 calories an hour. I personally love all the benefits snowboarding brings you, but I didn't know that worked out your core muscles, it’s a lot better for you than you would think. So  If you’re having trouble losing weight and being consistent, than consider going snowboarding more often, you can lose weight and have fun at the same time.
