Want to improve your skiing? Get a board.

If you’re planning a ski holiday this winter, then it’s time to start including some ski specific training in your workouts. Not only will it reduce the risk of injury and ensure you get the most out of your slope time but, when you spring out of bed on day three of your holiday, your body will thank you too.

One of the easiest and most effective things you can do to improve your skiing is to enhance your sense of balance and the best way to do this is to get a board. A wobble board.

In the weeks before your holiday stand on your board (in your ski position) every day until you can comfortably maintain your balance for a full minute.

And that’s it.

Of course, you’ll need to work a little harder if you want to dominate the steeps or boss the moguls but one of the the best ways to own your skis is to get  a board.

Disclaimer: Just so you know, I’m not a doctor, physiotherapist or personal trainer. In fact I have hardly any qualifications at all. It’s totally on you if you decide to follow these tips, nobody forced you. While we’re at it, I should also tell you that skiing is a physically demanding activity which could result in an elevated heart rate, feelings of euphoria, injury or even death. On the other hand, life is a time limited activity so it’s a good idea to live it well and sometimes be a little reckless, although that’s down to you as well. Nobody, especially not me, forced you to go into the mountains and have fun.
