If you are still procrastinating on pre-ski season conditioning, here are some tips from the University of Utah.
Compressed time? Something for people who work in high rise buildings, take a break from the desk and walk up and down a few flights of stairs several times.
Or here is something my neighbors do: they fill a few empty gallon size milk containers with water and put them in their backpacks, put on ankle weights and then walk up and down the inclined streets in the neighborhood for an hour. They tell me it is quite effective. (This done at night with headlights to avoid suspicious looks.)
Still suffering from lack of motivation? Take a look at these trailers for ski films out this fall and get motivated!
