hi I'm Mike Pellegrini and this is Nick trainer and we're from the Kipp train with Mike welcome to watchmojo.com today we're talking about the top 10 ski conditioning exercises today's ten exercises are going to be broken down into three segments core strength and power all these exercises are going to help us with posture balance strength and speed on the hill kicking off our list is the one-legged hip extension two leg curl with the stability ball so line your back flat one leg up on the ball one leg bent to the ground to start off with we're gonna raise your hips up in the air by pushing a heel into the ball other leg up in the air we're gonna curl our heel in towards our bum uncurl it and bring the hips back to the ground so pushing the heel in to initiate gluteal contraction and back down so hamstrings glutes core pelvis muscles all really key muscles to strengthen and stabilize for skiing coming in with number nine and continuing with our core series is the oblique jackknife with the TRX so get in a prone position on your stomach feet in the straps you're going to push yourself up into a push-up plank like position and you're going to pull your knees in towards your chest and then move your hips a little to the side accentuating the muscles of the obliques and the it–are core muscles again great movement mimicking how you'd bend especially by doing moguls while you're skiing making that core nice and strong to finish off the core series number eight we've got the core press to reverse lunge this is a fantastic exercise to strengthen your trunk your core muscles in an anti movement or anti rotation concept here so you're gonna grab the cable standing to the side of the cable in the centre of your body you're gonna push the cable away from your body with both arms straightened out completely with your outside leg we're gonna lunge backwards short of the knee touching the ground stand back up bring the cable back in so as NICs lunging out that force the cable wants to turn them towards the cable he's resisting that force by creating a core tension core contraction while those big muscle groups of the lower body are working fantastic for stability and strength for skiing now that we're finished with our core series we're going to move on to strength with number seven the one arm one legged deadlift we're going to use a kettlebell Nick's gonna pick up the kettlebell you could also use a dumbbell and we're gonna lift the leg off the ground of the arm that's holding the kettlebell we're gonna hinge at the hip bend at the waist throwing that back leg up and back you as straight as possible firing those glutes of the leg that's up and the leg that's down the entire posterior chain is working hard here back is nice and flat no rounding of the back arm is straight full body is working with that emphasis on the posterior chain this is strengthening the back of the legs the lower back the upper back and there still is an element of stability and balance here continuing with the strength series we have number six the one legged front loaded box squad Nick is going to sit down to the bench with a kettlebell up top so it's a front loaded box squat you could also use a dumbbell if you don't have a kettlebell same leg is on the ground of the side that's loaded with the weight other leg is up in front of you tuck that heel a little bit in towards the bench Nick is going to stand up on this one leg minimizing how much you're gonna lean back so I'm trying to be as tall as possible try not to rock with the body so use the strength of that quad that leg fantastic exercise to strengthen the anterior the front portion of the legs the single leg perspective last exercise the strength series number five the clean squat to press with the kettlebell you could also do with a dumbbell this is a full body exercise lower body pulling and pushing muscle groups working together you're going to pick up the kettlebell or a dumbbell you're going to clean it up to the shoulder go into a squat and right into the press motion so no pause between the squat and the press we're linking the body together here lower and upper body for a full body strength exercise now that we're done with the strength series we're going to move on to power with number four the jump squat basic plyometric exercise we're going to get to a squat position with your bodyweight feet shoulder-width apart and you're going to jump as high as you can extending your knees and hips fully using your arms to power you up try to land in the same spot each time same footprint and absorb each landing with a bend in your knee and your hip moving forward to the power series we have number three the lateral box jump stand to the side of a box just maybe four or five inches off the ground jump on it jump off jump on it jump off side to side working lateral power absorbing every landing with the knee bend hip bend using those arms I'm just make up 10% of your jumping power number two we've got the lateral shuffle to chop with the cable Nick is going to stand inside of the cable pick the handle up bring it to the center of his body facing away from the cable in front he's going to shuffle to the side one step and then power through a chop straighten out his arms as he does the rotational chopping movement again working on lateral power rotational power through the trunk through the lower body nice finally our last exercise this series number one the rotational jump with battle ropes this is our Black Diamond exercise of the entire series start off by picking the rope up and start creating waves by whipping the rope up and down through your arms at the same time we're going to jump side to side turning through the hips and lower body creating this fantastic movement which is going to help us cut faster hit those moguls harder and really work the lower body and upper body together through explosive speed and power that wraps up our series of top tens key conditioning exercises we hope you liked him we know they'll help you rip up the hill with style this year

    Downhill skiing is fun, but I wouldn't call it exercise.

    K.I.S.S. Walk up and down hills and climb up and down stairs with weights in your hands doing curls. Climb stairs sideways facing in both directions. Great for understanding the weight change in skiing.

    These exercises are creative and are sure to get you advanced skiers ready for the slopes. Nicely done! I just launched a video with beginner-style exercises. I did it for my ski club, and most of our members are over 50 years old. But they keep up that fit lifestyle, thank goodness!

    I loved the way the camera cut the exerciser up into parts, like a chicken. A close-up of his legs; a close-up of his upper body; there was even a close-up of the kettle ball–I got a lot out of that! And the close-ups of the instructor were excellent. Why should you show a whole person exercising, so that the camera does not break him into parts, but lets the viewer watch a person working out? Oh now, chop him up into parts and show what a clever camera operator you are!
