Ski Fitness, Exercise of the Month, July

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.

See Yourself in 80s Ski Wear

See Yourself: You are the Steps you Take

In any of the best ski resorts around the World you can come across the sight of casual, infrequent skiers who bought their 80s ski wear in the 80s!

80s Ski Wear spotted in AlpbachThis alarmingly coloured onesie was spotted on a boarder on the ski slopes of Austria in 2013, it must have been lurking in a wardrobe for around 30 years.

I know time flies by uncontrollably, and the back of the wardrobe is not a place to venture regularly, but I have three rules:

  1. If it is over 20 years old throw it out.
  2. If you haven’t worn it for three years, throw it out.
  3. If it doesn’t fit, it never will, throw it out.

Then, go shopping!

“See yourself: You are the steps you take” from Owner Of A Lonely Heart by Yes from 1983
