If you haven’t done any ski-prep, then you'd best start now.
It’s not too late if you follow our exercise plan daily for the next 2 weeks… but be prepared there’s a fair few reps as you need to play catch-up!
Jumping squats, bounding & hopping – if you haven’t got a box then a pillow will do… no excuses
10 Reps of each. Rest. Repeat 5 times
Crab walking – both laterally & diagonally
10m shuffle…. There & back! Rest. Repeat 5 times
Lunge & Rotation – Stand with one foot in front of the other, hip width apart and feet pointing forwards. Bend the knees to drop the back knee towards the floor and allow the back heel to lift. Maintain this position as you twist your body round to one side with your arms out in front of you. Your knees should stay in line with your feet.
30 secs. Rest. Repeat 5 times
Now for Strength & Flexibility…
The good-old Plank! But variation is key…
Repeat the above set 3 times
Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch – ensure you correct your pelvic tilt to feel the stretch
Hold for 30 secs. Repeat 3 times
Deep ankle bounces – Holding onto a post or doorframe sit all the way back onto your heels, keeping your feet flat on the floor. Then shift your weight over the ball of the foot and bounce lightly whilst pressing your heels down.
30 secs. Rest. Repeat 3 times
Finally it's time to get the foam roller out… for your Quads, Calves and ITB…. happy video watching!
