I find balance / core exercises make the most difference. A little each week over a 3 month period rather panicking before your ski trip and trying to get fit in the last week works a lot better (got the T-shirt).

Iím running 3x10km per week & sometime up to 50km. While Iím feeling fitter Iím still 108Kg, so itís not just fitness itís your diet as well

Fred Lepine has released two more fitness videos, these utilise typical gym equipment and are excellent in addition to his bodyweight workouts

Couple of relatively gentle workouts here by Team GB skier Rowan Cheshire for legs and core that you can do without needing gym equipment. Handy to know/do if you dont have access to a gym or cant be bothered paying for one

@bar shaker, if I remember correctly from your renovation thread you werenít exactly big in those pictures, you must be feeling the difference with 17lbs off.
Like I said earlier my running has certainly made me feel fitter, itís the weight I have to work on now, think I may try zero carbs but that will have to wait until Iím back in UK, this French bread 🥖 is to good

In general, I cycle the 12km into work, and back, at tempo, on a 40 year old racing bike. Part of that is off-road so I have 28mm tires. I don't have first day issues but that is maybe from core fitness from the previous season rather than ticking over during the summer on biking. I don't like to over-complicate things.

but as they man said "I'm not getting any younger"

Haha, yep I put on some weight at the start of this year and it just increased by a couple of pounds now and then. It's the Tartiflettes and Raclette's that have done me in Laughing Before I knew it, I was well over 13 stone.

I did the 5:2 diet, which really worked for me. I lost 3-4 pound each week, despite putting some muscle on (mostly from the rowing).

Jonny996 I was a bit thinner then. I badly broke my leg 4 years ago and have been told not to run any more. It's something I really miss, but I would only be accelerating the onset of arthritis if I ignored the advise. I ride now instead and try to get in 100+ miles a week. I do a zone 2 fat burn, an HIIT and an endurance ride. The Atom (running Sufferfest and Trainer Road) is great at letting me do these, even when the weather is bad. Dieting in France is virtually impossible for me!

@bar shaker, that's a good mileage per week, if it's mostly on the trainer. Must say that low zone riding on the trainer bores me silly (I can manage not putting the effort in on the open road Smile)

It's mostly on the road while the weather is still good. That said, it's so much easier to do a productive zone 2 on the Atom than on the road. I always feel like I want a sign on my back, saying "Doing a zone 2 - please pass" Laughing

On the trainer it needs BBC iPlayer or some banging tunes though!

The two machines work well together. The rower stretches your hamstrings and builds the back and shoulder muscles. Since using it I haven't had a single back ache on my bike. The bike has helped me get my HR down for the same efforts and I can now stay in my sweet spot (154-165 bpm) on either machine, for extended periods on an endurance session.

The two machines also work well together for skiing. The rower gives leg power and deep compressions, the bike gives endurance. Both give good aerobic and anaerobic performance.

The best thing about both of them is that they need no start up, laptop to start, Windows to update, app to load/update...

That's a decent distance to run at altitude!
