MOUNTAIN READY WORK OUT – cardio full body set

MOUNTAIN READY WORK OUT – cardio full body set

I’ve teamed up with SkiBro to provide the first in a series of exercises, which can easily be done in the comfort of your own home, just click on the link above to see episode 1.

This workout is designed to take no longer than 30 mins, so there is no excuses not to fit it in!  It designed to get your heart rate up and work all the major muscle groups used in skiing/snowboarding.  Try and complete the whole set and repeat it continuously 4-6 times.  If you are not sure of fitness levels, or need to work up allow a 30 second rest between each set, and start off with 2 or 3 rounds until you can complete 6.  The exercises here are all round great for all types of sport and general fitness, so get involved!

Getting yourself ready and in shape for your ski holiday means you can not only enjoy your skiing more, but also get less fatigued, help reduce likelihood of injury, and all in all stay out on the slopes longer!

Get ready to get started, get sweaty and get strong!!

Jo Pollard Physio

Hello! I would like to introduce myself and my new website.  I am Jo, and have been working for various companies over the last few years, but am setting up independently for my 7th season in Val D’lsere!  I am fully registered as a physio in France and the Uk.  I can also accept clients that can benefit from free, or greatly reduced physio with their Carte Vitale.

This summer I have had a great summer working in Chamonix, working with all kinds of athletes and tourists.  Its been great to see a variation of hiking, running, biking and climbing injuries!

I’ve been a physio for nearly 12 years now and have worked in many areas of physio, but mostly with the sporting population.  I have also been working with the para GB ski and snowboard teams and was lucky travel to all parts of the world.  I am a passionate skier and snowboarder, and combined with my experience am confident to get people back to where they want to be.  See my ‘about’ bio for more info!  Don’t hesitate to get in touch for any preseason injury queries or find out how pilates could benefit you!  Bring on the snow 🙂 

One of my favorite lines touring last year – lets hope for more powpow this year 🙂
