It's a Full Body Workout
Skiing is great for your heart and lungs because it is a physical exertion that requires you to get outside and continuously push forward. You also work your leg muscles as you descend down the mountain and try to control your direction and speed. Your crouched posture keeps your quadriceps and hamstrings, and glutes engaged at all times. Controlling your movements require you to use your arm muscles, and as you focus on your balance, you engage your core to build incredible strength. If you’re looking to get fit, then skiing is the best way to engage your entire body and build amazing strength!
