Warm up : 10 tips from Adrien Théaux

 

Discover 10 tips from Adrien Théaux, member of the French Speed Skiing team from Val Thorens, on how to prepare for Alpine activities.

 
1.

Ease back

into an exercise routine at least one week before your holiday. Forget the lift, it’s time to take the stairs! Goodbye public transport, hello bicycles and jogging!

2.

A healthy lifestyle

isn’t just about exercise. As well as staying active, a nutritious, balanced diet and a good night’s sleep are essential!

3.

Check your equipment:

well- prepared and maintained skis, comfortable boots, a working helmet, a mask with protective lenses, the right- sized ski poles.

4.

It never hurts

to have a quick look at the piste map before your holiday. It will stop you having to get off and look at every ski lift!

5.

In the morning,

bring a bag containing water, a snack, an extra layer in case of cold, and a pair of lightweight gloves if it’s hot.

6.

That reminds me,

did you check the weather?

7.

Skiing is a sport for early birds!

The pistes are most enjoyable just as they open!

8.

Before you set off on your first run,

ensure you have warmed up every part of your body, including neck, shoulders, arms, wrists and legs. Stretch your legs with 3 sets of 10 bending movements with a 90 second interval between each set.

9.

Start with a couple

of easy downhill runs to get warmed up.

10.

Remember that fatigue generally

hits and accidents often occur after lunch and at the end of the day. To get a head-start on your next day, use your après-ski to do some light stretching, stay hydrated and go for quick swim if you can!

Seeing is believing…

Baroque art was created to glorify God and muster the Christian faith during the 16th century. With around 80 edifices devoted to this unique style, Baroque is a singular feature of the French Alps and the Savoie département. With the “Baroque Escapades in the Alps” programme, the Facim* Foundation takes people back through time along the royal roads leading from Turin to Nice and Chambéry via the mountain passes. Follow in the footsteps of those who once walked Les 3 Vallées…
