Personal Trainer Denver CO on Ski Conditioning.
Here is some better late than never advice for ski conditioning. The ideal time to start training is 8-12 weeks before the season opens. Statistically, most ski injuries happen during the first day on the slopes.
So, if you plan on doing any skiing this season, you’d better get training.
Two main objectives in your conditioning are to:
1. Train your body into the best condition possible for the specific demands of the sport.
2. Prevent injuries before they happen by preparing your body for the inevitable impacts that come with sliding on snow.
This requires training for endurance, stability, balance, strength, power and flexibility. I’ll elaborate more on these later.
