3 Self Isolation Exercises for Skiers 

The premature end to this winter’s ski season has left many skiers without a trip to the slopes and a chance to enjoy that crisp mountain air, pristine pistes, stylish chalets and spring blue skies – but don’t worry! We’ve found the perfect solution for you to bide your time until you can hit the slopes again with these self-isolation workouts.


When you’re skiing your thighs are one of the hardest working muscles, that’s why squats are the ultimate ski fitness exercise as they strengthen the legs and bum and can improve your coordination and balance. 

How to do a Squat: 

  • Start with your feet shoulder-width apart 
  • Put your hands out in front of you for balance 
  • Sit back as if you are sitting in a chair, keeping your feet flat on the ground and your knees behind your toes
  • As you are sitting back, keep your chest up and your head looking forward
  • Try to do 3-4 sets of 20, giving yourself a 60-second rest between sets

Jumping Lunges 

Last longer on the slopes with jumping lunges! This is a great lower body exercise that will develop your cardio capacity, challenging your quads, hamstrings, glutes, hip flexors and calves. 

How to do a Jumping Lunge:

  • Start with your feet shoulder-with apart 
  • Jump your left leg forward and your right leg back into a lunge, with both knees at 90 degrees 
  • Jump up and switch your legs in midair so that you land in a lunge with your right leg in front 
  • Without rest, repeat this movement 10 times, alternating which leg is in front


As well as working on your legs, it’s important to build up your core, as this will help with your balance and control, improving performance. 

How to do a Plank: 

  • Lie face down on the floor 
  • Rest your elbows into the floor pushing up your hips and resting only on your elbows and toes 
  • Hold the position for 60 seconds 
  • Repeat the exercise on either side, lifting yourself onto one elbow and the side of your foot to work your oblique muscles 

With these 3 easy exercises you have no excuse for first-day noodle legs when you’re back on the slopes!
