If you are pressed for time or you don’t like going to the gym, you can practice at home. You can easily get in shape for skiing by doing your ski fitness training at home with a minimum of equipment. I have posted more specific ski exercise tips here
If you already workout in a fitness center or gym, you can of course also do your ski fitness routine there. There is plenty of relevant equipment that you can use, for example dumbells, swiss balls, medicine balls, cables and resistance bands.
If you prefer to go out for a run, then you can incorporate some ski fitness exercises on your way. Running alone is not very ski specific and it will not prepare you efficiently for skiing.
On your run you can for example include
lateral jumps when you run down a hill
side skipping up a flight of stairs
a few sets of walking lunges
some core exercises.
Train-along skifitness videos
Finally of course you can use all, or some, of the exercises from the complete ski fitness program, I have made a program as train-along videos. You simply play the video on the device of your choice at home and you will be training your ski fitness along with me. The program has 2 progressions to get you in shape for skiing so you can choose according to your fitness level. All you need is a step and some Dumbells or soft weights.
There’s no reason why you should not be in shape for skiing this season. Just follow these simple guidelines for your ski fitness!
