You can do a lot in two months. Do you belong to a gym or have access to one? Leg extensions, calf raises, and squats will tremendously improve your lower body balance and control, so look into doing those. I do the stair climber paired with the workouts mentioned, and never get sore or tired legs during any activity.

No idea what you'd do on your own at home, sorry. Maybe someone else has some ideas for that, like putting together a small home gym. Supplements are unnecessary IMO. I've used them in the past, and the results didn't justify the cost for me. Just keep up a good diet and be disciplined about your workout routine. Natural weight training will get you plenty strong.

You could try doing wall sits or jumping jacks/jumping rope. Your goal is only to build endurance in your legs so simple exercises using your own bodyweight should suffice. Don't expect to put on any noticeable amount of muscle mass if you are not lifting weights though.

Supplements are not necessary but they can definitely help. My favorite protein is Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey. You can get a 5lb container for under $30.

If u got two months and want to get muscular endurance in your legs for snowboarding, then your not gonna be able to add much muscle in that time. Your best bet is to do bodyweight squiats, lunges, or jumping squats as a power endurance exercise. In other words do something like this: 20s of as many squats as you can do, 10s break, 20s lunges, 10s break, 20s pushups......

just mix in as many workouts as you want do like 8 sets for legs and do it 3x a week. youll be surprised how well something so simple works. oh, and run too of course

On the note of supplements, at least take post-workout protien shakes. Your post-workout shake is crucial if you're at all serious about this.

Powertrip's recommendation of Optimum Nutrition's 100% Whey Gold Standard is :thumbup:.
Don't buy it from GNC, you'll just get ripped off. Order it from www.bodybuilding.com, and look at the "Top 50" selling products.

You should also check out there "Excercises" and "Workouts" databases, and it wouldn't hurt to visit their forums and ask questions there. Not to take anything away from this particular forum, but you'll get infinitely more erudite responses and a higher number of people who're willing to give solid advice.

Try including yoga.  It's actually a great work out.  :smile:

Trust me, you don't need fancy gym equipment to break yourself off. Join the Army and you'll learn this the hard way.

Try Iron Mikes (Walking lunges for long distances, touching knees to the ground, and coming upright completely, with both hands on the back of your head)

Or just standing leg squats with no weight, focus on keeping your back straight.

Wall sits. Sit up against a wall for extended periods of time.

And running, run run run. Build yourself up, within two months of enough work, you should be able to run pretty well. Push yourself constantly. Go for two mile runs at a fast pace (6-7:30 min mile) and go for four to eight mile runs at a slower pace (8-10 minute mile).

And have fun snowboarding, it's a high in its own.
