Last week we published an article in which we shared tips for beginner skiers. Today we bring you a series of advisable practices to get fit before going skiing this winter, valid for both novice skiers and those who already have some experience.
For starters, the muscles that you should work the most are those of the legs. In fact, they are the quadricepsthe muscle group that exercises the most while practicing skiing since they are responsible for maintaining the flexed position and the body forward. In addition, these muscles protect the knees, a very important role since the knee suffers a lot when you ski.
The hamstrings and glutesMuscles complementary to the quadriceps and located at the back of the leg, it is also important to strengthen them because they pull on the body and tighten when you lean forward. On the other hand, the abductors, muscles in charge of the movement of opening and closing the lower extremities, work hard to keep skis or boards parallel or when making turns and turns.
The twins and soleo, muscle located just below the first, also suffer greatly due to permanent tension with the body facing forward. And indirectly, abdominal and back muscles They also provide a lot of work and need to be kept strong. Some shoulders and arms, along with a strong back, they are of great help to push the sticks and for the rowing and turning movement.
Having said that, we offer you this Training plan, published by elconfidencial.es, so you can get fit and exercise all the muscles mentioned:
