Day 4: Aerobic Day

It’s another cardio day, but today will be a bit different because we’re aiming for very little—if any—impact. Remember, boosting your cardio will help you go longer and recover faster.

If you’re just joining us: Be sure to start at the beginning! Go back to the course intro so you’re prepared and have the foundation for this ski fitness program.

And remember to download the full workout .pdf, so you can follow the program regardless of your internet connection.

For today’s cardio, your goal is to aim for little to no impact on your body. You want to take it easy but still make your lungs do some work. It’s not a rest day by any means, but you don’t need to be completely gassed after your cardio session. Like your last cardio day, you’ll pick your favorite type of cardio, but here are some suggestions with target times:

  • Hike: 40 min.
  • Walk: 40 min.
  • Bike: 40 min.
