Fitness for Ski Instructor Training Session 14

Written by New Generation Instructor Courses

Todays Fitness for Ski Instructor Training session is short and sharp. There are no fancy movements, heavy weights or weights at all for that matter. As with all of our conditioning sessions the aim is to keep moving and rest only when planned, forgot about the number of reps just keep pushing forward at a pace that means you never stop.

Lets get going

Aim of session: Conditioning

Warm up

4 x 2 minutes of skipping

Dynamic Stretching + Foam roll

Main Resistance Training

Today we will be performing a tabaata style circuit. In a tabaata circuit you do 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. Ordinarily you would repeat this 8 times totalling 4 minutes of work in the same exercise, but we are going to mix it up.

Instead we will be performing a circuit of 4 exercises for a total of 4 rounds. Each round you will complete 20 seconds of each exercise followed by a 10 second rest. Upon completing exercise 4 rest your 10 seconds then start over. It will look like this

  1. Burpees – 20 Seconds work – 10 Seconds rest
  2. Star Jumps – 20 Seconds work – 10 Seconds rest
  3. Mountain Climbers – 20 Seconds work – 10 Seconds rest
  4. Split Jumps – 20 Seconds work – 10 Seconds rest

Repeat the circuit 4 times. This will total 16 minutes of work. Make sure you do not rest any more than the prescribed time.
