I figured it's about that time of year. What are you guys doing to get your legs/body ready for ski season?
I recently came across this on NS and have found it incredibly useful. Been working out since April and the first time I tried this I was in so much pain. I love it haha. There's even a nice little training plan in here(:
I also recently got the Mtn Athletics app, it's got some great training ideas. Focuses a lot on the legs, but also gets your upper body which is bomb to help reduce injury. Basically use that and then elaborate a bit more in the gym, and have been trying to bike a bunch too to boost endurance!
I did a lot of plyometrics this summer (the p90x workout version) because it's good for "jumping" sports, like basketball, skiing, etc. I wanted to do whatever I could to get the right leg muscles in good shape for the season
Now, I'm doing post-knee surgery PT. BLEH. Trying to rebuild my quad muscle, and all my other asshole leg muscles that atrophied. Shooting to be strong enough to ski by January! If anyone's got any tips on post-knee op recovery I'd love to hear them.
