Things to do for Dryland Training
1.Warm up-Slow Jog, Jumping Jacks, Stretches
2. 1km run-try to get some slope or hills in your run. As you feel comfortable with the 1km run, go 1.5 then 2km.
3. Small Slalom-Find a slope, set up a small slalom course with items, run the course both down hill and up hill. Use your ski poles to practice timing and use of the poles.-5 times down and up.
4. Pole jump- have a pole horizontally 6 inches off the ground and jump back and forth from side to side for 30 seconds. Make sure your feet stay together and you are on your toes. Keep upper body as still as possible. Use your poles for balance at first and remove when you are comfortable.
CHOOSE AT LEAST 2 OF THESE ACTIVITIES
