Suggested Taper Structure For A Ten Week Training Plan – Work your way up the levels. Depending on your starting fitness / age / limitations you can choose whether to stay with the 30 second rest Prepare / Advance / Core Edge or you can move on to the Advanced videos where we have 15 seconds rest in these sections. If you have bad knees and the Power and Cone Drill sections seem out of reach or to high impact just skip them.

Feel Comfortable: Essentially do the best you can and what feels good for your body. If you reach a level that you feel comfortable with and you don’t want to advance past that level, just stay with it. Do what works for you. If you need to skip an exercise just do that and hopefully over time your fitness with improve and you can go back to it.

Tip: Once your fitness is getting good you can try the Cone Drills section, just press pause after each section so that you can have more rest between the Drills. Build up from one or two intervals to six over time.

Flexibility: We have designed SkiFitPro to offer maximum flexibility of use for all ski fitness levels. If you need more rest period press pause ‘ or if you find that there is to much rest for you ‘ move onto the Advanced Videos. Still too easy! Try SkiFitPro directly after your cardio training.

(Remember this is an ideal progression chart ; even if you only have a few weeks before your holiday some training is going to be a lot better that none. Start at the realistic level of your current fitness. Be sensible about your progression in the time frame that you have, training beyond your current fitness level may lead to injury.)
