Your vacation planning community

We are onto our third session for our winter prep.

How are you feeling?

Snow is starting to fall and winter is fast approaching. Don't waste time getting your body ready for the season! 

 

This week we are going to focus on leg strength combined with some balance elements.

 

Skiing is a mixture of both these aspects, so it's perfect!

 

To start:

Grab a pillow, dyna-disc or any uneven surface.

Place your pillow about 2 feet in front of you.

 

Exercise 1

Lunge onto Pillow or Balance Prop

 

1.) Start standing on both feet in an athletic position

2.) Lunge forward stepping RIGHT foot onto pillow or Balance Prop

3.) Hold here and pulse 30 mini squats on the single leg

4.) Step back into starting position

 

Repeat steps 1-4 on LEFT leg

Perform 6 Lunges total

 

 

Exercise 2

Single Leg Balance on Prop

 

1.) Step with your RIGHT foot onto your pillow, dyna-disc or anything balance prop

2.) Balancing on only your Right foot, bend your knee into a 1/4 squat. Make sure your knee doesn't shift over your foot! If you're struggling...use your rear-end more! Shift your weight through your heel.

3.) You are going to Balance here in the mini-squat position for 30 seconds.

4.) Return to starting position

 

Repeat Steps 1-4 on LEFT leg

Perform 6 total holds

* For added difficulty, close your eyes while on your balance prop

 

 

Exercise 3

Single Leg Jump or Step onto Prop

 

1.) Standing in starting position with your prop 1-2 feet in front of you

2.) Step or hop onto prop with LEFT foot

3.) Hold position and touch floor at to the outside of your left foot while balancing

4.) Step back into starting position

 

Repeat Steps 1-4 on RIGHT leg

Perform 10 total holds

*For added difficulty, close your eyes once you are on balance prop.

 

Following your 3 Exercises, make sure you stretch out your glutes, hamstrings and quads.
