The Workout Process
We try to keep a lot of variety in our workouts, but there
is a basic process that you should follow for every workout:
water-bottle with sport drink (Gatorade powder (big cans at WalMart) is an inexpensive source).
a snack bar: 1 for short workouts (to eat at the end), 2 or more for
longer workouts (eat one in middle, one at end)
checklist of necessary clothing, HR monitor, and ski gear
on-time or early
ski workouts arrive early if you need to classic wax
usually warm-up as a group, often break into groups for the main part of
the workout, and warm-down as a group.
We work as a team and no one gets left behind.
- If the
workout will last over an hour, or if it is extremely hot, wear your
water-bottle belt back. If the
workout will be over 90 minutes bring a snack bar.
- At the
end of the workout eat a snack bar and drink plenty of fluids within 15
minutes of the end of the workout.
- Remember: the training is only half of the process. The other half is proper nutrition, hydration, and rest after the workout so that your body can super-compensate for the training that you did and make you stronger for the next workout.
