Hey guys, I was wondering what most of you guys do for keeping in shape off season and in season. And if you could give me some tips for workouts and that i get of my lazy ass and do it.
VD.I'm usually train for climbing, but I find that keeps me in pretty good shape for skiing.
But as far as ski specific training goes, I'd suggest just general cardio work. Start from where you are, which might be only like 20 or so minutes of running/biking/swimming pretty slowly, but don't be put out, it's more important you keep your heart rate up. I also don't think there's anything wrong with resistance training for skiing. Remember though, skiing involves by static and dynamic movements, so you want to tailor your training to this, just stacking squats will only do so much. And it goes without saying, keep your core strong, it'll help with your form in the air.
