Ski Tuck Jumps
Ski tuck jumps are an excellent exercise to develop strength and power quickly in the lower body and buttock muscles prior to going on a downhill skiing holiday.
Throughout the movement aim to stay in a tucked position, similar to that of a down hill skier, with your feet close together, hands in front of your body, fingers touching.
Commence the exercise with your feet close together, and jump up only a few inches taking your feet to a wider stance, however aim to remain in the tucked position.
As you land back down in the wider leg stance, lower down a few inches to absorb the landing, then as you rise back up, jump again taking your feet close together.
Repeat this movement for desired amount of reps, taking care when you finish to keep your legs moving to aid blood flow again, as this exercise will temporarily restrict blood flow. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded, lie on the floor and raise your feet in the air.
Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
