Getting Ready for the Ski Season

The first thing you are likely to do is check out your equipment and decide what does or doesn’t need an upgrade.  Its important to do that same assessment on your body to figure out what needs some conditioning, so you don’t have noodle-legs after your first day on the slopes. We have some at-home exercises to help you get ready.  Front squats strengthen your lower body, just be sure to keep your body aligned.  Jumping lunges, try challenging yourself by jumping up and switching your legs in the air. Oblique twists will strengthen those oblique muscles you use as you twist and turn your way down the mountain.  Single leg deadlifts work your glutes, hamstrings and core which are essential to stabilize and balance yourself.  But really the best cure for noodle-legs is a relaxing massage at the Spa.
