If you haven’t sought out some snow by now, it’s about time to do so.
Getting on snow early is important to build up balance and stability.
Additionally, if you are forced to transition back to rollerskis a few
times, you’ll have that snow feeling. As far as training goes, the plan
still calls for some intensity but also adds a little volume taking
into account the increase in early season skiing.
TRAINING PERIOD DATES: December 3 - December 30
NEW IN VIDEO ROOM:Technique:
Coach Skate Drill - adding additional power to the skating techniques
Double Pole Core Only With No Straps Drill - working on engagement of the core muscles
Training Movements - the importance of movements for athletics and life
STRENGTH TRAINING OVERVIEW:
The plan remains very ski specific. It now becomes about nailing the
details. To prepare for racing you want to develop some “snap” in your
skiing. That means you feel a little extra spring to your step (but
when skiing). This feeling can be accomplished in the gym. Make sure
all of your movements this period are crisp and focused. A lethargic
movement will become just that when you test it on snow. Think about
being snappy in the gym and let it pay dividends on the trails.
