Get fit for Skiing - week 9

We are now on the final count down the start to the ski season there are now only 2 weeks until we open the Christiania in Les Gets for season 2011/12, we have in association with Steve Bonthrone, a personal trainer from Perth put together a series of 10 exercises to help get you fit for the up coming season. If you search for Fitness on this blog you can find the first eight of the 10 exercises that have already been published. We will add the final routine next Saturday.

This week Steve states "that we return to more advanced core work, which some of you may find a bit more difficult. For more information about the exercises, please visit my website"
9. The Plank on the ball
Most of you will be familiar with this exercise or ‘The Bridge’ as it is otherwise known. If you find this one difficult, try the exercise on the floor or with the knees on the floor. Place the forearms on the ball, the toes on the floor and keep the body straight. Aim to hold the position for around 20-30 seconds then repeat another 2 times.
