Strength training should be a part of everyone’s health and fitness routine all year. Incorporating some basic strength training into you weekly schedule is not as hard as you think, and the benefits are many both on and off the slopes –>
The skiing (and snowboard) strength plans, are created with that goal in mind, but there is not anything especially unique or tricky about the movements and exercises you will be doing. The plans are geared towards building a strong core and activating your prime movers.
Plans are delivered by an app that makes it easy to understand and follow. There are simply cues and a short movement video to follow.
There are 3 options (based on your own equipment)
The program is written for 3 days per week, roughly 40 minutes. If you only have time for 2 days per week as long as you do it consistently, you will still see significant benefits.
The key to seeing strength gains is consistency over the next 3 months. All three days will be different, and you will see the workouts change as we progress through the 3 months. The default days will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You can do it any three (or two) days of the week, just not two days in a row. The workouts will still open no matter what day it is. For example, if you are working out on a Tuesday, you can still click on Monday’s workout. If you want to make your calendar custom to you, it is very easy to login on the desktop and move it.
The workouts will be varied enough that you will not be bored, but you will also see consistency so can get into a routine and challenge your body to adapt and get stronger.
Plans are created to give you some clear structure, guidance and accountability. I am a Personal Trainer (NSCA.com) as well as a health coach (ACEFitness.org) and thrive of helping people make health and fitness a sustainable part of their lives.
Cost: $75 ($25 per month). You also have full access to all the full functionality of the app.
