Exercises For Skiing and Snowboarding

Snow, snow, snow on the mountains. For many of us in the Northwest, the only thing that can get us through the wet months that lay ahead is knowing that if it’s raining down here, it’s snowing in the mountains!

Skiing and snowboarding are amazing sports and they are very intense.  Be prepared to hit the mountain with some strength this winter.  Try these workouts to get you there!

After a light warm-up, do these exercises below 3 times per week on alternating days. Do each of the four exercises for one minute with a 30 second table top in between each exercise. That will take you about 6 minutes. Take a 2 minute break, and then do it again. It will only take you 15 minutes, but it should be a fast-paced, intense workout to make it count. Be sure to fit in some running or power walking, stair-climbing, skipping rope or cycling on alternate days for optimal conditioning. These sport-specific exercises will involve a lot of very intense and high-impact movements. Please feel free to omit or modify any of the movements by removing any jumping or movement patterns that do not feel comfortable to you.

  • Explosive squats
  • Lateral agility drill
  • Power lunges
  • Jumps over the step
  • Table tops
