Advanced ski conditioning
This class is designed for the more advanced skier or boarder and those moving on from the ski – fit classes. This class will also have a maximum of four participants and a pre- ski assessment is included in the cost of the classes and must be carried out prior to starting.
Advanced skiers are at risk of different injury to the novice skier or boarder due to greater speeds , more acute turns and rotational forces placing more stress on the knees .
The class will build on core stability , flexibility and endurance placing emphasis on all the major muscle groups in the lower limbs .Strength training will combine eccentric , concentric and plyometric muscle work .
The skiers edge will be used to develop quickness in lateral movements and build endurance needed to master challenging runs.
All classes must be pre booked and paid prior to start of classes , please see classes timetable for dates and times .
The Skiers Edge
The skiers edge is a non – impact lateral conditioning machine , that is used by the worlds best ski teams and is known to be the number one technical ski conditioner in the world . www.skiersedge.co.uk Here at Recovery and Beyond Physiotherapy we have the skiers edge big mountain machine . This is the ultimate trainer to improve technique , polish turns , gain strength , and endurance.
From beginners to experts all levels of skiers will benefit from training on the big mountain.
The skiers edge simulates movement patterns in skiing , enabling anyone from the recreational athlete to professional to increase their performance on the slopes .
The skiers edge is also invaluable as a sports specific lateral cross training tool and is used in the clinic for many of our sports performance screening and exercise programmes . Sports such as football , tennis , golf , hockey , and waterskiing all require the same basic skills – some form of lateral motion , balance., weight transfer ,power and core strength .The skiers edge is able to develop these skills improving your performance in each sport , and is especially useful in rehabilitation of such sports specific injuries.
Our Skiers edge here at the clinic is used as part of the ski assessment and classes and in our sports screening and performance sessions . It is also available for individuals to use for unsupervised training sessions per ½ hour . Please note 45 minutes is required for the first visit as health form and induction will need to be completed . This induction does not apply to those who have attended a ski assessment / ski classes.
