Have you ever wondered if your fitness routine actually gets you fit for skiing?
There are a lot of ski fitness routines to be found on the web – only are they really designed to get you fit for skiing?
It seems that if a program has a squat and a plank in there it qualifies as ski fitness these days and yes it is better than doing nothing. But there is a little more to it than that if you want to ski better and stronger – have good stability, strength and balance and reduce your risk of injury.
I have made a checklist for you to help you make a good program yourself – or decide if one of those more generic programs need some adjustments in order to really make them skiing specific.
You can also use this if you are pretty active and do other sports and still you get sore when you go skiing… Or if you spend most of you day behind a desk and just need to know what is the most efficient way you can prepare for skiing.
If you do it right, you can boost your enjoyment factor and get fit for skiing in as little as 2x 30 minutes a week.
