SKIING EXERCISES

"SPEEDSKATER"

Find two objects such as empty soda cans and place them about 6ft apart on the floor. Stand in between them. Then leap to the right and land as softly as possible on the right foot, next to the can. Let the other foot trail behind your landing foot and make sure it stays suspended in the air. Reach down and touch the can with your right hand without moving it. Then leap to the other side and repeat for the left side. Complete at least 3 sets of 20 reps of this exercise.

"BALANCE DRILL"

Stand with one empty soda can on the floor to your left about 3 feet away. Balance on your right foot and squat down to the floor as deep as possible. The farther you can squat down, the better. Hold your fists out in front of you and mimick holding on to ski poles, but never use your hands to assist you by touching your legs. Slowly and in a controlled manner, use your left foot to touch the can without knocking it over. Never let your left foot touch the floor. Complete 20 reps. Repeat for the opposite side. Complete 3 sets of 20 reps for each leg.

"BALANCE DRILL 2"

Position yourself as in the "BALANCE DRILL", but this time move the suspended foot in half circles. Make the circles as large as possible without touching your foot to the floor. Complete 3 sets of 20 reps for each leg.
