Skiing is great. Having your holiday stopped short due to injury, or flat out lack of fitness… not so great.
So I’d like to share a few ski specific exercises that’ll help protect you from the stresses and strains you’ll face on the slopes.
Do these 2-3 times/week for a month before you go and you’ll notice a big difference to how strong you feel when you’re out there on the slopes.
NOTE: if you’ve got a knee injury, or suffer knee pain exercise will still help you prepare. We’d just need to modify some of the exercises to suit. Either give me a call, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll advise how you can modify this circuit to suit.
Perform one set of each exercise, rest 60 seconds then repeat for 3 total circuits. Build up to 5 total circuit over the next few weeks.
You’ll feel your quads (thigh muscles) burning by the end of the circuit, which means you’re doing a good job of preparing them for the challenge they’ll face when you out there skiing!
