It’s the beginning of the year and a lot of us have made New Year’s resolutions. Maybe one of the goals you made this year was to improve your ski and snowboarding strength. At Inward Fitness, we offer classes for ski and snowboard conditioning. Skiing and Snowboarding both require you to have strong legs, a strong core, and good balance. Now, we are going to give you our top exercises to strengthen you for the slopes!

Step-Ups

As we said before, skiing and snowboarding requires you to have strong legs. Step-ups will definitely help increase your leg strength and your balance all at once!

Plank and Side Planks-

Planks are a great exercise to get your core strong. Side Planks are great for balance and getting the obliques! A strong core is important, don’t leave these out!
