Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or a beginner looking to try indoor skiing or snowboarding for the first time at Snozone, it’s important to get prepared physically beforehand!
Here are some valuable tips to follow in getting fit for skiing and snowboarding:
Skiing and snowboarding demand endurance, so try running, cycling, or swimming to boost your stamina and prepare your cardiovascular system for the slopes.
Leg Strength and Stability
The lower body plays a key role in skiing and snowboarding, so help strengthen your legs with squats, lunges, leg presses and stability exercises like single-leg stands.
A strong core is essential for maintaining balance, protecting your spine and having control on the slopes. Include core exercises like planks, Russian twists and medicine ball rotations in your workout routine.
Flexibility and Stretching
Flexibility is key to preventing muscle strains and enhancing your range of motion. Perform stretches like leg swings and arm circles, then use static stretches to improve flexibility and reduce muscle tightness.
Simulate the stop-and-start nature of Snowsports with interval training. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is ideal for building cardiovascular fitness and muscular endurance.
Remember to start your training as early as possible!
