Recently, Time published an article called “Why Skiing Is a Ridiculously Good Workout.” The article pointed out that the maneuvers required for skiing offer a total lower body workout. Skiing uses muscles that are rarely used in other activities and workouts. The article also pointed out that skiing is a good cardiovascular workout and interval workout (intense activity with periods of rest immediately following one another). Skiing, like any great workout can be enhanced with a great recovery massage.

Sports Massage in Breckenridge

Working Different Muscles

Most people don’t ski regularly. Those of us who live here are fortunate to be close to the mountain, but many others only ski on their vacations or weekends. This means that many of the muscles required for this total lower body workout aren’t used regularly. When you use muscles that aren’t accustomed to working so hard, they can easily become stiff and sore. However, you don’t want to waste any of your precious ski vacation nursing sore and tire muscles. A post ski massage can help your muscles recover faster so that you will feel good about getting back on the slopes.

Stay Flexible

A post-skiing sports massage can also help keep your muscles limber and flexible. When your muscles are loose and limber, you can help reduce the risk of serious injury. While skiing is an excellent workout, there is also some risk of injury. Starting on terrain appropriate to your skill level; preparing for skiing with targeted stretches and exercises; and following up with a post ski massage can all work together to help prevent injury.
