Do you want to spend the day skiing on the slopes of Grandvalira without stopping for a single moment? Start preparing your body for this ski season with a series of exercises that will make you gain strength and avoid the annoying stiffs the next day. Don’t miss the training we propose you!
A good warm-up
Start the training session by heating all your muscles with cardio exercises, running or using an elliptical machine. But if you also want to take advantage of this part of the training to strengthen your legs to ski, we recommend that you get on an exercise bike and pedal for 30 minutes changing rhythm every 5 minutes. You will gain a good background and better support the physical effort on the slopes.
Strengthen your torso
Having a good balance is key at the time of skiing, as it helps us to better control our movements and to avoid falls. You can improve this ability by doing sit-ups with a fitball such as the forearm or lumbar plate type, although you can also do them directly on the floor.
Ideally, perform at least 3 different abdominal exercises, in sessions of 25 repetitions for each, to create more muscle mass this part of the body that is crucial to protect the spine during the ski day.
That the legs are the part of the body that works the most while skiing is not a secret, and that is why we have to train them and have them well prepared before reaching the slopes. By flexing while we ski, the twins constantly contract and tire quickly. To avoid this, each session includes a twins stretching session stretching each of them for a minimum of 30 seconds. And to make sure you do not have stiffness, repeat this exercise before and after each visit to the slopes.
Put on your sports clothes and start training to give it all this winter at Grandvalira.
In Park Piolets you will not have to pause your training during your skiing trip. Visit our gym and do sport surrounded by white mountains.
