How to get fit for the ski season… Part 2 – Pelvis

Examine your body from the side. Make sure your bottom is not sticking out too much or tucked in too far. You need to find the pelvis’s ‘neutral’ position. With your pelvis in neutral your muscles work best, keeping your upper body relaxed. To find neutral stick your bottom out and up so that your imaginary tail points upwards – this is one extreme of the movement. Then tuck your bottom right under, taking your imaginary tail between your legs – this is the other extreme. Your pelvic neutral is half way between these movements. Practice bending your knees into a skiing position maintaining pelvic neutrality – 30 reps every day until it feels normal.
