Train Like a Ski Guide! The Ultimate Heli-Ski Workout.

Ever wonder how our guides get in top shape for the heli-skiing season? Their workout routines are designed to get those ski muscles primed for unlimited vertical.  So we asked our guide Stan "The Power Tool" Metcalfe  to give us a demo of what he recommends for a great heli-ski workout.  As a physiotherapist, this guy knows his stuff and has broken down an awesome circuit to follow before your trip,  so the only shaky legs will be from the thrill and excitment of skiing the best powder on the planet.

This workout can be done 2-3 times per week, and to raise the bar you can add a half hour of cardio (jogging, biking etc).   This circuit has 3 parts, do each exercise for 30 seconds then take 10 seconds rest.  Repeat each part 3 times before moving onto the next one.

**As with any new workout program, make sure you avoid injury or issues by consulting a physician before performing this program.
