Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

my favourite 'no equipment' leg exercises for skiing

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi guys!

I have written a short blog on some of my favourite ways to get ready for a ski trip. It's just 7 leg exercises, no gym or equipment required. They are pretty basic movements most people should be able to do, unless you have any serious knee injuries etc.

here is the link - http://batterseaski.co.uk/my-favourite-leg-exercises-to-prepare-for-a-ski-trip-no-gym-required-seven-leg-exercises-to-get-your-legs-in-shape-for-a-ski-trip/

The exercises are:

Jump squats
Alternate lunges
Single leg hip thrusts (both sides)
Calf raises
Speed squats
Side lunges
Ski sit

Thought it was worth sharing on here. Keen to hear any thoughts on other effective leg exercises in preparation.

I like pulse squats as well; my pole plants with imaginary poles helps get a few extra out. Very Happy and some funny looks obviously

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Haha, nice touch. Might bring out the poles in my next session!

I bought a balance board this year and the ONLY pre skiing exercises I did were on that, I have bad knees, am 60, carrying 2 stone more than I need and nothing hurt me after 12 days skiing. That's a first for me - I always get very sore legs after a few days and really bad DOMS. I did about 6/8 weeks daily exercises on it so massively exercising core but also did squats and calf raises on it as well. Must have done a lot of good!

This is the one I bought: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07L4LJ3R9/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_kLIwCb3AY9J2E?tag=amz07b-21
