Workout Plan for Alpine Skiing

Remember to warm up before starting the workout and cool down with some stretching afterward. Adjust the weights and intensity based on your fitness level, gradually increasing as you progress. It's always a good idea to consult with a fitness professional before starting a new exercise routine, especially if you have any underlying health conditions.


Definition: Squats target the lower body muscles, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes, which are essential for skiing.

How to perform: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees and lower your hips down as if sitting back into a chair. Keep your chest up and your weight in your heels. Return to the starting position by pushing through your heels.

Repetitions: 12-15 reps Sets: 3 sets



Definition: Lunges strengthen the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes while also improving balance and stability.

How to perform: Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Step forward with one leg and lower your body down until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. Push through your front heel to return to the starting position. Repeat with the other leg.

Repetitions: 10-12 reps (each leg) Sets: 3 sets


Romanian Deadlifts:

Definition: Deadlifts primarily target the hamstrings and glutes, helping to improve leg strength and stability

How to perform: Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a barbell or dumbbells in front of your thighs. Hinge forward at the hips, keeping your back straight and knees slightly bent. Lower the weight down toward the floor, feeling a stretch in your hamstrings. Return to the starting position by squeezing your glutes and extending your hips.

Repetitions: 10-12 reps Sets: 3 sets


Box Jumps:

Definition: Box jumps improve explosive power and leg strength, which are crucial for quick movements and jumps in skiing

How to perform: Stand facing a sturdy box or platform. Bend your knees and swing your arms back. Explosively jump onto the box, landing with soft knees to absorb the impact. Step down from the box and repeat.

Repetitions: 8-10 reps Sets: 3 sets



Definition: The plank exercise strengthens the core muscles, which provide stability and balance while skiing.

How to perform: Start in a push-up position, with your forearms on the ground, elbows directly beneath your shoulders, and toes tucked. Engage your core, glutes, and legs to create a straight line from your head to your heels. Hold this position

Duration: 30-60 seconds Sets: 3 sets


Mountain Climbers:

Definition: Mountain climbers are a dynamic exercise that engages multiple muscle groups, including the core, shoulders, and legs. It also improves cardiovascular endurance.

How to perform: Start in a high plank position with your hands directly beneath your shoulders. Drive one knee forward towards your chest, then quickly switch legs, alternating the movement in a running motion.

Repetitions:  20-30 reps (total) Sets: 3 sets
