I came across this message board and thought that it would be a wonderful idea to add some information about working out ski specific muscles to my website. I know that skiing is mostly leg muscles but I want to make sure with the pros. What would you say the most important areas of the body are in order to stay in shape for skiing?

Yes, It is mainly the leg muscles you should be concerned about. But you should really stretch as many muscles as possible as you never know what you could land on if you fall.

This site looks useful - http://www.ovphysio.com/stretchg/skiing/skiing.htm

I lists a few stetches particularly useful for skiing.

Thanks,
Michael

I never realize that I am working my legs hard until the next day. I think the stretching tips will help. Thanks.

It is also good to stretch in preparation for the skiing season. It could loosen up that leg and prevent it breaking in a fall

I always get into some sort of stretching routine before I go skiing! It pays off, if I have one of those big falls I am not as fragile

I like to stretch my chest muscles and back muscles as well. I find that often they ache after a good ski, aside from the leg muscles.

Realisticly you should stretch before doing any sport, it lessens the chance of you hurting yourself because it warms the muscles up.
