Skiing typically uses different major muscle groups to any other cardiovascular activity. Doing ski related activity and exercise pre and during your holiday and trips can improve your performance and reduce your chance of injury significantly. It is widely thought that preparation should occur at least 10-12 weeks prior to ski trips building in intensity and duration prior to your trip.
Before skiing (or any sport) it’s essential to prepare your body for the sports activity you are soon to do. When we ski we usually are operating in a cold environment and go from being very static to then skiing at a high intensity and having to exert sudden and large amounts of stress our muscles to a high degree with very little or no preparation in between.
Not being ‘ski’ ready can lead to muscular problems due to the intensity of pressure require on knees and joints in the body. Lateral movements are also key in skiing due to the constant change of plane of movement from side to side or forward and back.
*Fit-Ski is a whole body workout and guranteed to make to sweat and have fun whether you are heading to the slopes or not
