Lying Naked on the Floor
On the Snow has teamed up with US Ski Team members to create a series of videos to show us ‘mortals’ a thing or two about ski fitness: Don’t forget, it’s not supposed to be easy.
If you are going to get the most out of every day you are able to hit the ski slopes, whether that’s in Andermatt or Zell am See, the Chill Factor-e or Ski-plex my best advice is to be in the best shape you can be, before you go. I have never heard anyone on ski slopes saying; “I wish I hadn’t done as much work on my fitness before I came”, have you?
Working on your core strength and helping to sculpt your abs and test your lats, this one is a ‘Pullover’, that’s ‘Pullover’ not ‘sweater’!
In the video, this exercise is filmed in the gym, but you can’t use lack of a gym membership as your excuse. Get a towel, lie on the floor and work with a bag of sugar, flour or a tin of paint; you must have something in the house weighing between 2kg and 5kg.
Australia’s Natalie Imbruglia was “Lying Naked on the Floor” in ‘Torn’, her 1997 debut single.
