Women’s 2017 Fall Dryland Session

Relatively good aerobic and general fitness is required.  Sessions will include balance, strength, and dryland technique drills.  Session will also include an intensity component in the form of ski walking, running and/or bounding.  The goals of this session are:

  1. Perfect basic skiing motions such as arm swing, classic kick and leg swing, and side push skate motion with legs.
  2. Gain strength in the important xc skiing muscle groups such as abdominal muscles, lower back, glutes, and quads.
  3. Make improvements in balance and ankle strength so that skills of weight shift and long glide become easier on snow.
  4. Weekly interval sessions to improve your fitness and results for the winter race season!
  5. Make more life long women training friends (we often have post workout potlucks)!
