You may be familiar with Bridgit Jones’ attempt
at skiing in the second film, The Edge of Reason. We use that as an example frequently with clients! If you are tired on the slopes, and the
muscles are not prepared, for ski or snowboarding, then that tiredness will
undoubtedly affect your performance, enjoyment and (as the statistics confirm)
: your safety.
Most ski or snowboard accidents seem to occur on the second
and third days of occasional winter sports trips.
We show you how to stretch properly, to prepare
muscles and how to condition them at home; and using specialist equipment
available at WINDOVER STUDIO : as follows :
We have a special programme of exercises developed using
our Core Board & BOSU, the POWER PLATE® machine and the all new SkiErg (from Concept2 ~ the rower people).
We also have a snow-board simulator :
It is never too late to start pre-ski preparations : but
it is better if we have at least 3 weeks notice to prepare and implement a
programme! Two months is ideal.
Using our combination of Power Plate and Suspension Training > a great combination ... here for a deep squat, and with added shoulder, arm and upper back conditioning in pulling-in at the top of the squat
We have also offered fitness conditioning programmes to suit the following (not ALL of them being sports related) :
Dance Conditioning for leg muscles, here using Training Heels on (protected) surface of our Power Plate
Continuation here ... Dance Conditioning > using a variety of different equipment to achieve the required results for position, or posture, or instability to condition the core
The Shin muscles for cyclists that use proper ankling (or "wiping the feet") style of pedalling > here we are conditioning the Tibialis Anterior using our Power Plate and a Silver Exercise Band (although the Plate surface is cruel to such resistance band use!!)
Shoulder and back conditioning (as well as legs and core) in one go, all using the PLATE for CHINNING exercise, a combination using the Dual Adjustable Pulley machine around our Power Plate Pro-5 with a long 5-foot BODY BAR as the support. This for one of our yachtsmen ...
... great for conditioning this yachtsman's shoulders etc
AND next, some TRICEP DIPS
