3 Weeks to Ski: Week 1 – From Couch Potato to the Slopes in 3 Weeks

The first thing you need to do is to make sure your body is ready for skiing. You will have to go through some exercises which are not recommended for beginners. For example, you may want to avoid doing any weight lifting or high intensity cardio exercise before starting the program. If you decide to do these things, then it is better to start with the first day of the program.

You should take care of your diet too. Don’t eat anything that could cause stomach upset or other problems. Also don’t drink alcohol during the whole time you are preparing for skiing! Your body needs a break from all those calories and alcohol causes blood sugar levels to rise which can lead to dehydration and even death if you aren’t careful.

If you are going to take part in the program, then you should know what to expect from it. There are certain rules that must be followed. These include taking breaks every hour or so and sleeping at least 8 hours per night. You might feel tired after working out for a long period of time but if you follow these guidelines, then you shouldn’t experience any problems.

Now that you have a general idea of what to expect from the program, it is time to start it. The first week consists mainly of doing some stretching and cardio exercises without any weights. It should only take a total of about 20 minutes. The best thing to do is to find a local gym and use their exercise equipment. If you don’t want to go to a public place then find a home exercise program online and follow that.

The main reason for this week is to get your body ready for the following weeks. The second week involves light weight training. Again, you should not be working with weights that are too heavy. It is best to start with machines at this point in time because they will allow you to get a good feel for how your muscles work. After a few sessions, then you can add free weight training.

Make sure to keep all movements slow and controlled and listen to your body. When in doubt, rest and only increase the intensity if you’ve been feeling good and not getting too worn out.

The third week involves even more weight training but this time you will be using free weights. Again, start slow and make sure to listen to your body. As long as you are following the guidelines of the program, then you should continue to see results. As long as you push yourself a little bit everyday then you should be happy with your results!
