September is one of my favorite times of year. It is a month that is transitional for many people when it comes to their exercise routines. With September, comes the change of seasons, sometimes staying warm, (an 'Indian' summer) until the very end, or it can a bring on the chill of Autumn in the turn of just a couple days.
With the turning of the seasons comes the change up of workout routines. If you are one who enjoys outdoor activities, especially cold weather activities, then the time has come to start conditioning for ski, snowboarding and snowshoe season. Give yourself a good 4-6 weeks of consistent stretching, strength training, plyometrics, and cardio conditioning to be at peak performance for the slopes.
In my research, I found a great article written by Kathleen Leopardi-Anderson, CSCS, through NSCA (National Sports Conditioning Association).
She has put together some effective, specific exercises for your winter sport activities. This is a great article to print out and put on your fridge for further reference.
If there are any questions on this article, feel free to leave them for me in the 'Comment' section down below my blog.
Now go get your wellness on and start your conditioning! :-)
