After youre done skiing you often feel tired, especially in your lower body. Is there any nice dilating exercises that you can do right after you finish your day at the mountain to prevent yourself from beeing really stiff the next day? And how long is the recommended time doing these exercises for the best result?
for your legs, stand on one leg and do quarter squats. and maybe crunches for abs cuz theyre not really hard but still do work. i dont use these for dilating excercizes after skiing, but they seem like they fit what you mean
alot of times, i do short reps of high knees, buttkicks, grapevine and inchworms. after that, sit facing a wall, close enough so when you lay, your ass is near the wall, your laying flat, and your legs go up the wall.....like your sitting 90 degrees, but upside down. give it a shot, itll help flush your lower extremities...
crouch down on one foot, so you are sitting on your heel. toe on the ground. and stick your other leg out. reach past your toes on the foot that is far away from you and bend at the hips. pulse up and down.
then theres the sucking your own dick thing that was mentioned above. (sitting at 90 degrees against the wall, back on the floor though)
these are all great ways to warm up your muscles for skiing, but id be careful about doing these after, because you can actually hurt yourself doing this.static stretches work best, along with the water stuff in the reply above^^
not from what i learned in sports conditioning. static stretching after any muscle intensive exercise causes the micro tears to spread further apart and increases the time necessary for them to heal as a result. leaving you sore, and out of your full form for longer. non intensive dynamic stretching will help prevent soreness.
