Moving from general to specific activities of skiing
Are you an avid walker/skier or are you motivated to climb and climb the world-famous skiing competition? Maybe you have a training patch near you during pre-workout classes? Despite the many opportunities to experience skiing, coaching has something in common in all disciplines. And it is this exercise that prepares you to enjoy the season with confidence, avoid injuries and let your stretch of the day help your ski mates a little more.
The focus here isn’t necessarily on overwriting Strava segments or placing sophisticated FCMs; Fun (as well as safety) in the mountains contributes greatly to a good aerobic and strength base. Creating a good workout mat will allow you to relax and enjoy the view instead of feeling like sucking on a discoloured straw and pulling your legs up. Good conditions, happier skiers.
Our first three-part series will help you prepare for the upcoming season. Today’s article focuses on broader ideas on how to be successful with your workouts during the summer and fall months of walking, running, biking, and more. more specific workloads on skis.

The transition from general to concrete activities
Whether you’re walking, running, backpacking miles, or climbing a high step on a narrow path or trail, fall is a transitional season for skiers. When walking from dry land to snow, the first thing to consider is how much your body has moved specifically to slide on a ski or board. Running and walking where the legs are brought, imagine the needs of killing rather than cycling or rowing, being carried lightly and seated.
However, no training on land will perfectly prepare you for skiing. It is important to take into account these differences and the approach to walking simulation.
Running is a great way to increase fitness and maintain functional strength. If you’ve been running a lot in the summer, this is still a great way to increase lower limb impact resistance. If you want to change your current training in favour of skiing, add vertical growth to your practice. Don’t be afraid to walk at a fast, strong pace to mimic the twists and turns of the skin’s path. If you want to go skiing, it’s a good idea to include faster final exercises and swing exercises.
You should (and shouldn’t) start running immediately if it’s not part of your diet; instead, you can find a local hill and chew on some greenery on the way up. Not a mountain? Try a treadmill with a score above 15%. Without a treadmill? Even if you walk fast on soft/flat terrain with little luggage, it will stretch your body a lot. For more vertical workouts, bring some walking sticks (or just winter walking sticks) to complement your arms and restore the synergy of the cotton between your hands and feet.
Believe it or not, if you’ve been running or cycling all summer without excessive pressure on your upper body, the first few days of using neat study sticks can be painful. Attention also to the origin; Huge bike training base won’t save you from broken quads while walking or running for the summer if you allow speed. It’s best to stay calm and start the next day.
Think about it
In the next issue, we’ll explore some details on structuring your aerobic and intense ski training, including using a heart rate monitor (or popular?) To make sure you don’t gas every time. Side travel.
Along with the overall increase in foot fitness, it’s time to start thinking about ways to improve your skiing technique. When you see successful shaving razors, they often take advantage of increased skin trail sales, especially on steep terrain, by staying on skis and maximizing skin grip without hitting from the back.
Again, not all of us are looking for Lycra-coated spikers. However, when you see these famous men and women in the same movement, you can get an idea of how we can adapt these techniques for longer, less intense travel days while maximizing the economy and minimizing the need.
Everyone should carry the best ski boots with them while skiing. This helps to get a premium level of performance.
If you’ve been cycling during the summer months, now is definitely a good time to put some weight on your feet using some of the techniques outlined above. Your foot muscles need to feel the impact of the ground to increase their strength, not only while running, but also to withstand repeated squats for thousands of feet downhill. In the next part of this series, we will look at how you can supplement this indoor leg time with strong exercise so that these ski muscles can be attached locally to get them fit and ready for the slopes.
Finally, after a few weeks of relocation, you may want to add a small package to emulate your day travel package, perhaps £ 10-15 in total. Think back to the details. You don’t want your first trip with a group or spells to be your first trip of the year; Prepare your body in advance to feel natural and familiar with the first runs of the season.
