    Default Wakeboard workout routine suggestions

    I remember seeing the "gym rats" thread on here a while back but I wanted to start something back up.

    Does anyone have a really good workout that they do for getting in wake-boarding shape. I have been out on the lake now 4 times in the last few weeks and notice that I'm getting really tired quick. The first day I went out my legs literally felt like wet spaghetti noodles when I got back into the boat and I was sore for about a week after.

    I am 35 years old now but I still really like to get behind the boat and catch as much air as possible. Is there anything that you guys (who are really shredding) are doing for a work out that has helped.

    My routine now is

    Run 3 miles 4 days a week
    push ups
    sit ups
    dips
    squat jumps
    pull ups
    lunges
    sometimes : burpies (i really need to feel motivated to do these)

    I try to do all of these together 4 days a week but even though I'm doing this workout I still feel weak and tired after one 15 minute set.

    Any suggestions on a routine, should I be doing this workout together, should I be doing it in a certain order, anything I should delete or add.

    I figure my time is limited for going big behind the boat so I want to make the most out of the little bit of youth I have left. Thanks in advance. I also saw this series of videos, is there anything in this series that I should be adding? https://www.youtube.com/user/Wake2WakeFitness

    Insanity is awesome for wakeboarding shape. Ive yet to reach the limit of my legs...my grip strength goes way before my legs. 40min 5x/week and you'll be good to go.

    Unfortunately that's why I'm in the less than optimal shape. Just looking to see what others have been doing. I have tried the p90x thing and that's good. But I was thinking about trying something new.

    I'm with this also. I have to wakeboard as much as I can. I don't see where exercising helps that much

    I moved to Atlanta 2 years ago and it's hard to find people to get out on the boat amazingly enough. I remember before I had a boat I would jump all over the opportunity to go wakeboarding. Now it's hard to find people since I have a good boat.

    x2 on Insanity! Very good cardio and leg workouts!
    Also, just by doing 50 air squats every morning and throw in some box jumps when the burn starts getting less should help for a simple fix!

    Insanity for the cardio and core. I have also recently started doing TRX workouts and these are killer for grip strength and a full body workout.

    The key is to strengthen your core. When that is weak, you compensate with other muscle groups which fatigue them much faster.
    I do a lot of strength training and lifting. It has helped me out tons with wakeboarding, just need to up my cardio a bit.
