Greeting fellow winter enthusiasts,

I have been around here, checking out the threads for information and I am very impressed with a lot of the stuff. I have enjoyed it and decided to register and partake in the festivities.

I have seen many asking questions on how they can prepare their body for the demands of skiing. I have a web site that has some information that may help you out. Contact me for details.

Enjoy and I hope this help you all out!

Ski you later!

SNOtrainer, are you Alex or Tommi from the website you provided?

Aren't you guys located (or were located) in Northern NJ? You used to train at The Gym in Montvale, yes?


If I'm mistaking you for somebody else, my apologies...

Baja,
Did you ever work at a very small ski area in North Jersey?

Yes I did!

Did I attend your daughter's wedding a couple of years ago, BillA? If I did, then you (and she, and her husband, and her husband's brothers, and her husband's father) worked at that very small ski area as well!


(Geez... this thread is like a high school reunion)

Yes, you did! Small world.

Good to see you here. I hope you continue to contribute to the fitness forum and any other areas you can lend your expertise to.

Stop by and say Hi if you’re ever at Mt Creek.

I've just recently joined also, and have a Phys.Ed degree. I don't work in that field any longer, but still use my knowledge of A/P almost everyday.
Have you heard of Egoscue method? If so, what do you think about it and if not, go here... www.egoscue.com
Let me know what you think.

You know, I have not heard of that method before. It seems as though someone put their own "flare" into something and renames it.

Its interesting and they have some credible testimonials.....thanks for sharing. Bottom line, it just comes down to movement and having a purpose behind it.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy Sharpen Your Edges. Let us know how you do!

Thanks Snotrainer, that looks very interesting.

having trained in dance and yoga, locked knees do not bother me, but many trainers frown on that. do you get grief for promoting exercises with a locked knee position? Also, the reach the feet and hands photo appears to be in a demi-squat. is that part of the exercise - the squat?

Both exercises in which the knees are locked are mobility exercises. In the inchworm, driving the heels down and locking out the knees will lengthen the whole posterior chain (from toe to head). In the spiderman, locking out the back knee, will create a lengthening response in the hip flexor group.

As for the balance reach, reaching with the foot and hands is just a cue to get a response (mobility and deceleration)at the foot /ankle complex and at the knee. So don't think if this as just a squat.

Thanks for the question
