MAP MY RUN—Ski season is in full swing, but your body may still be in post-holiday recovery. Whether you’ve kept up your fitness routine or spent the last few months everywhere but the gym, use these easy exercises — recommended by experts from the Professional Ski and Snowboard Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors — to get strong for the slopes.
The last thing you want is get tuckered out by your midmorning hot cocoa break. You’ve probably waited too long and traveled too far for fresh powder. Do these nine moves before, during and after being on the slopes all day, so that you can swoosh or shred with better balance, complete more runs without fatiguing and recover faster with less muscle soreness.
