Get strong to ski!
If you're planning to hit the slopes, then why not do some prep first to make sure you get the most out of your holiday?
Even if you're not the sort who enjoys skiing from dusk till dawn, doing some strength work before you go can help prevent injury and reduce some of the aches and pains that come from tired muscles.
This is a super simple format, that we recommend you do for 6 to 8 weeks before you're due to head off.
You should aim to do:
Cat's Skiing Prep circuit 3 times a week. You should increase the number of rounds (take a 60 second rest between them) and intensity as you get closer to your trip.
3+ cardio sessions a week for 20+ minutes (this can be running, cycling, swimming or a higher intensity class).
What you need
Skiing Prep circuit
For beginners, start by setting your timer for 30 secs for each exercise gradually increase this in 10 second increments as you get stronger, until you get to 60 seconds for each exercise.
It's important to stretch before and after exercise to avoid injury, so we've also included a suggested warm up and cool down.
