Preparing for the ski holiday

Fit for the winter ski season

At Chesa Monte, we use autumn to prepare for a sporty winter in “dry training”. Here are our five top tips on how you can prepare at home with little effort. The important thing is to do these exercises regularly, exercising for 20 to 30 seconds and repeating two to three times. You should also take short breaks between intervals.

Before having fun, you should prepare yourself appropriately for the sport on the slopes, as this will increase the fun factor and reduce the risk of injury.

Die besten Übungen für Stabilität und Power auf der Piste

1. waggle
Place a broom or a pole on the floor. Stand sideways and jump over the flat obstacle
legs alternately over the flat obstacle.

2. downhill position
Everyone knows the downhill position from television. Place the feet flat on the floor and bend the upper body forward with the back straight. The knees are slightly above the tops of the feet. Arms are bent in front of the body. As an improvement, it is a good idea to shift the weight alternately to each side and to perform a final jump in between.

3. lunge
Do a lunge. Make sure that the back remains straight and the front knee is at about a 90-degree angle above the top of the foot. The other knee is bent and just above the floor. 4.

4. write eight
Lift one leg off the floor and use it to write a figure eight horizontally in the air.

5. toe stand
Stand relaxed and straight. Stand with feet about hip-width apart. Important! Keep the back straight and the abdominal and pelvic muscles tense. Then move into ten-stand and pause briefly. If you have problems with balance, hold on to a chair or the wall.
