Are You Lying About How Much Exercise You Do?

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Fitness


We all like to think that we are fit and healthy. We run for the bus and we think we’ve had a workout and will tell anyone willing to listen (or not) that we’ve just worked out.

A lot of us will have taken part in the sport this winter and probably got quite fit as a result. But that doesn’t mean you need to lose your fitness until the next season. Continuing ski training will improve your technique and fitness for the coming season. As most people know, you can keep your body in good shape throughout the year to maximise your enjoyment on the slopes next year. Cycling, running, swimming and skipping are all good for cardiovascular fitness as are aerobic workouts. Experts say to improve endurance, your fitness training should include at least 20 uninterrupted minutes of aerobic work at least three times a week. And if you want to retain your fitness but still want to feel the joys of skiing then there is hope yet.
