Ski Prep Time

We had our first ski of the season at Blue Mountain yesterday and realized two things:

FamilyinLakePlacid1. We were in WAY better physical shape last year

2. We better get in shape now if we really want to take advantage of our ski time in Vermont at the end of January.

Luckily, P90X has already figured it out for us. Starting Monday:

Week 1

  • Day 1: Plyometrics
  • Day 2: Yoga X
  • Day 3: Core Synergistics
  • Day 4: Legs & Back
  • Day 5: Kenpo X
  • Day 6: Plyometrics
  • Day 7: Yoga X

Note:┬áThere is no “rest day” because of the time constraints of the program.

Week 2

  • Day 1: Core Synergistics
  • Day 2: Legs & Back
  • Day 3: Kenpo X
  • Day 4: Plyometrics
  • Day 5: Yoga X
  • Day 6: Core Synergistics
  • Day 7: Legs & Back

Week 3

  • Day 1: Kenpo X
  • Day 2: Plyometrics
  • Day 3: Yoga X
  • Day 4: Core Synergistics
  • Day 5: Legs & Back
  • Day 6: Yoga X
  • Day 7: Plyometrics

Note:┬áThe change at the end is for maximum breakdown during the last hard bit of the 1-month cycle. Now it’s time to slow down before your trip. Hard training during your recovery will negatively affect your ability to perform well.

Week 4

  • Day 1: X Stretch
  • Day 2: Core Synergistics
  • Day 3: Kenpo X
  • Day 4: Cardio X
  • Day 5: Yoga X
  • Day 6: X Stretch
  • Day 7: X Stretch

During your trip, begin the day with some light yoga to warm you up for skiing. Ending each day with X Stretch or something similar will help you perform better the following day. Now rip it up and have fun!
