Skiing Workout

Lucky enough to go skiing this winter? If so make sure you are in the best shape for it by doing the following exercises.

Being prepared and feeling strong will increase your chances of injury massively as well as improving your technique

Warm up

Start with a warm up (you must not miss this part or you will hurt yourself!)

2 mins walking on treadmill upping pace over the 2 mins.

You can replace the treadmill for a bike or rower to mix it up

Lunges: To protect your knees make sure they don't go over your toes

Do 12, rest for about 15-30 secs then do another till you have done it 4 times.

Dumbbell in each hand and slowly go down to a lunge

Deep squat: Go down with you bum not your legs, your calf should not move and knees should not go forward

Kettlebell weight: 10kg

12 reps x 4 sets

Mountain Climbers

45 seconds as fast as you can rest 15 x 4 sets

Leg Press: Don’t lock your knees when legs straight

15 reps x 3 sets

Leg Raises with band

3 sets each leg 15 reps

Calf raises with weights

15kg EH 40 reps x 2 sets
