2 Balance Exercises For Staying Upright On Skis

     keep in mind that by performing specific balance exercises every day, you will be ready to hit the slopes for a fun and safe skiing or snowboarding experience.  Before you even hit the slopes, you can rehearse steadiness routines at home which should include practicing centering your body weight in the middle of your arches. You can start this stability routine by standing with your feet shoulder width a part and centering your body weight in the middle of your arches. From this position, first concentrate on the sense of touch between your feet and the floor. Eventually, you will translate this steadiness procedure to focusing on the sense of touch between your feet and your ski or snow board boots. Additionally, you can work on stability exercises that involve controlling your weight shifting side to side and front to back. These exercises help you control your body’s weight shifting abilities as you perform each turn while skiing and as you tackle different snow conditions including hard pack or powder slopes. For instance, if you are in deep powder, you can shift your weight back to your heels to lift your ski tips out of the deep snow. Furthermore, before you step into your bindings You can progress your stability exercises by controlling your weight shifting on a balance board or the BOSU. Be sure to add leg strengthening exercises to your balance program to make the most of your skiing or snowboarding experience. To get you ready for the slopes, you can practice specific balance exercises and leg strengthening exercises at home and at your own pace  by joining in with the instruction of a knowledgeable Physical Therapist with the Exercise For Balance DVD.
