So many clients over the years have requested a ski prep strength training and mobility program to help them enjoy the slopes. Why not hire a trainer for one or steal a few of these moves. It’s that time of year and it seems like many areas have been blasted by lots of snow already, I thought it was good timing. The fact that I am typing this post on a Friday night and going skiing all day tomorrow may be a little motivation as well. Johanna, pictured below all geared up for super cold weather trains with me via zoom. I just coached her on 12 week ski prep program (changing workouts after 6 weeks or 12 workouts) with a bout of covid in between (ugh). Guess what? No leg fatigue and she did great.
If you have knee issues then eliminate the hop also known as plyometric. Plyometrics teach your muscle how to preload energy and train the body in a different way. Way more burn is felt during plyometrics. The reps and sets for these are going to be higher as you are trying to get endurance to get down the slopes without noodle legs. Go for 2-3 sets of 15 – 25 reps with some cardio in between to flush it out or some core to keep you on task. Plyometrics should not be done more than once a week to allow enough recovery and better results.

South Carolina Energy Fitness relocated site update: As of 1-29-2022 contractor said construction should be finished by end of Feb. 2022 which means March 2022 we will be painting, putting flooring in and moving the equipment in and start taking new clients. This week I ordered a large stainless steel catering style sink for the fitness floor. This will be great for the massage therapists to clean cups or blades used during sessions as well as clients making protein shakes and washing hands before and/or after sessions. The building is in much need of some landscaping in which I borrowed a pick ax for the clay soil and have called utility company before digging!
