Ski Training without a trampoline? +k for tips
Hey NS! My parents just threw away my trampoline. :(. Now i need a different way to train and practice tricks without one. Any tips? +k for help.
Go down to your local pool and use the diving board?
D splash/ local gym with trampolines. or jump into dirt
No gyms were I live that have tramps :( thanks though
Cliffjumping? Even if it doesn't help you train its so much fun.
Well of course if you can get to a summer camp with snow and/or with water ramps/ tramps (Hi!), that is a huge help.
Outside of that, see about a summer setup for rail tricks and hop on Google and see if you have any gymnastics centers nearby that have open gym time when you can go jump on some string bed tramps.
Lastly, VISUALIZATION. Never to be underestimated, visualization is a very powerful tool that is used by all top athletes in all sports, skiers included. To describe it very basically, sit down, close your eyes, take some deep breaths, clear your mind, and see yourself skiing and stomping the tricks you want to learn in your head. See them in both a 1st and 3rd person perspective. Visualization has proven to be a very powerful training tool due to the fact that when you imagine yourself doing a task/making a movement, your muscles actually fire in a similar fashion as if you were actually doing that task/movement. If you can see yourself doing a trick, you can do it.
That would be sick if I had cliffs were I live. Thanks for the thought though.
Thanks man! I'll keep that in a thought.
I would say go cliff jiumping. there are rivers and lakes everywhere with good spots, also a great idea is if you can jsut stay in shape, so like LINE said play soccer. Also, rollerblading. and ive found that when you hop on the back of a soccer net, like the crossbar thats on the ground with cleats on without spikes in the middle it slides like a rail =p
i built a summer setup with 95% of it coming from the dump if you have power tools then it isnt really that hard to use and im progressing pretty quickly
that sounds like all of my rec soccer practices in the fall, especially after it rained.its way more legit feeling then youd imagine
I have a summer setup and it is where I learn pretty much all my tricks during summer and also during the winter. And it's so fun because it's nice to ski in the summer. Also i like to go take snow from the arena sometimes in the summer/fall so it slides better and you can go faster
Ya do a summer set up! Like use Astro turf and have a drop in and your golden!
truth. this works for everything except girls.
Rollerblading for sure. Get some good aggressive skates and build some small pvc rails. One of my fav things to do during summer, fall, and spring
Slackline. They are so fun and wicked good for balance
