Ski Fit


For those of you hitting the slopes this season, project50 supporter, Becca Mclachlan, offers the following pictorial guide to exercises to get you ski-fit. Concentrating on core stability as well as leg strength, these exercises can be performed daily, building up the repetitions.

Pay attention to good technique – no arching backs or knees bending too far forward at the back there! project50 can take no responsibility for any injuries you could conceivably sustain whilst performing these exercises (is that enough to safeguard me from a lawsuit if you fall over, do you think?) but then if you’re the kind of chap or gal who enjoys flinging yourself down steep slopes with your feet strapped to thin sticks and armed with nothing but a couple of poles, you’re probably dafter – sorry, I mean tougher – than me anyway. Happy lunging!
