Bethea explained that core strength is key for all sports endeavors and holds especially for winter sports and activities. Our core is the prime mover of the body anything you do get out of bed to taking groceries out of the car that is your core being used. Core is most important in any sport and definitely in winter sports because you have to control your body more when youre on skis, skates and boards, which can be unpredictable unlike being on your own two feet where to some degree you can kind of predict where you want to go." Betheas top three exercises he conducts with every client are very simple: Low planks On the elbows, hold your body parallel, to the ground from your toes. Hold this position for as long as you can. For beginners, Bethea advised 30 to 45 seconds, for the more advanced, Challenge yourself to a minute and once you get to a minute then challenge yourself beyond in increments. Leg raises While lying on your back with your body flat against the ground raise your legs strait in the air pointed toward the ceiling then repeat the motion 15 to 20 reps for each leg. Toe touches Start from the same position as leg raises with arms above the head on the ground and start with raising legs with toes pointed to the ceiling then reach for the toes, repeating for 15 to 20 reps. Whether male or female, there is no skipping steps in properly preparing your body for sports. I work with the individual to take them through an assessment and figure out what their goals are, and, then from there, we work together construct a strength and conditioning program. Bethea suggested that specific sports will have certain areas that may need more focus. For skiing, the focus may be more abdominal to maintain yourself upright and build up quads to propel yourself on the skis and working on flexibility because youre definitely going to fall when you are just learning and when you are flexible you are more prepared to handle the awkward position. With hockey, a focus on back muscles is essential, free-style skating is tough enough for your legs and back without chasing after anyone or slapping a puck; so you definitely have to work on conditioning, leg strength, flexibility and core strength. Even winter running can have its challenges for which you need to prepare. As the colder air of winter approaches, the winter air is thinner and it becomes harder for you to breathe, harder for you to exchange oxygen as easy versus the air in the summer time. Bethea advised that there are high-velocity training masks in which you can train so the body can adapt to forcing demands of high oxygen exchange. Conditioning is also integral to training for winter activities whether youre competing or just want to keep up through the workout.
