Looking for a ski conditioning workout? Find the strengthening fitness training here - get your free fitness training app. This conditioning workout will challenge an already fit skier in a functional way, specifically for skiing. It will offer the client a progression from their generic workout by imitating some of the forces experienced during skiing. Intermediate skis are designed for skiers who have completed a season of skiing and have learned to parallel ski, hockey stop, and ski steep terrain. Intermediate skis have a wood core for a stiffer flex (high flex rating), which allows the ski to be more stable at higher speeds and more precise when turning. At higher speeds, the ski will vibrate less and feel more stable underfoot. A beginner will find it more difficult to learn to ski on an intermediate ski, but a more advanced skier will benefit from this stiffer, more precise type of ski. Use proper form. Take time to learn how to properly perform each exercise. Lifting weights effectively requires you to move through the entire range of motion without pain. The better your form, the less likely you are to injure yourself. If you can't maintain good form, reduce the weight or the number of repetitions. Remember that proper form is important even when picking up weights or returning them to the rack. If you're unsure whether you're performing an exercise correctly, seek advice from a personal trainer or other fitness professional. Please consult with a doctor before starting any workout or fitness program. This is especially important if you haven't exercised in a long time, if you have any health concerns, if you're pregnant, or if you're an older adult. Please speak with your doctor to determine the amount of exercise that is appropriate for you.
