Exercise Tip of the Season

It’s time to get ready for ski season! 

The ski season is fast approaching, which means it is time to get in shape and avoid the potential aches and pains or injuries associated with a new activity. Skiing involves controlling gravity on frozen water requiring strong deceleration strength in the hips and legs to control the turns. Doing exercises like squats, leg presses, step ups, split squats and lunges will ensure you develop the ski specific strength needed. Work on muscular endurance by doing 2-3 sets of 15-20 repetitions at a slow tempo (3 seconds down) Ensure your knee is tracking properly over your toes and not tracking to the inside. Adding balls, balance equipment, hand weights & resistance bands will increase the difficulty and challenge the core.
