Health Tip: Ready, Set, Ski!

(HealthDay News) -- Before you tackle the snowy slopes, make sure you're fit enough to ski safely.

The American Council on Exercise offers these recommendations:

  • Enroll in a skiing-specific training program to prepare you for the slopes.

  • Add variation to your usual workout routine; wall sits to strengthen legs or crunches to strengthen your core.

  • Create a circuit-training workout, toggling between 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest.

  • Incorporate slides, one-legged squats or running between cones to hone your skiing skills.
