How do I prepare my body for skiing?

How do I prepare my body for skiing?

With winter approaching and the prospect of ski holidays on the not too distant horizon, many of us can’t wait to hit the slopes. If you are wondering how you can prepare your body for skiing ahead of your winter trip, our guide on the best pre-ski exercise will give you all the answers you need. From building your strength and carrying out cardio exercises to getting back into practice on the Chill Factore ski slope, you will be ready for your skiing holiday in no time. These pre-ski exercises will also help you to enjoy your day on the slopes and prevent any injuries or muscle fatigue.

Build your strength

When carrying out pre-ski exercises, it is highly recommended that you build your strength. Skiing is a sport that involves using every muscle within your body. Here are the most popular pre ski exercises for your legs, arms, abs and back.

Leg exercises for skiing:

  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Deadlifts
  • Step-ups

Arm exercises for skiing:

  • Bicep curls
  • Tricep extensions
  • Jump ball slams
  • Lat pull downs

Abs and Back:

  • Back extensions
  • Dumbbell rows
  • Russian Twists
  • Bicycles
  • Side bends

Cardio is key

When preparing for a ski trip, it is recommended that you spend three to five days each week on cardio-based exercises. Cardio is an essential part of your pre-ski exercises and can help reduce the likelihood of injury and improve your energy levels on the slopes. Cardio exercises that are ideal for ski training include running, cycling and using a stair climber for 20 -45 minutes at a time to get your heart rate up.

Get some practice at Chill Factore

Practice makes perfect, and there is no better pre-ski exercise or activity than practising on a slope. Visit us at Chill Factore in the Trafford Centre, where you can ski all year round on the UK’s longest ski slope. Our ski lift passes are ideal for the experienced skier who wants to get some practice in without hassle or interruptions. Embrace the authentic experience of a real slope with real snow and tackling terrain challenges, including moguls and rails.

Build your skills with ski lessons

If you have never been skiing before or would like to develop your skills before going on your skiing holiday, our skiing lessons will make sure you’re prepared. Our highly experienced instructors will not only teach you how to ski but provide you with techniques to prevent injury along with pre-ski exercises. Make sure your children are prepared for their skiing adventure as well with our snow school, where your little ones can find their feet and learn basic skills before heading out on holiday. We also offer private lessons for those who need that little bit extra to ensure that their body is prepared and they learn the techniques required to prevent any potential injuries.
