Running tip 26 Try Skiing

Any time a runner can work on strength, flexibility, balance, and/or use different muscle groups, it’s a good thing. Skiing checks all those boxes and then some. “In addition to building coordination, core stability, and leg strength, alpine skiing works the leg muscles in many different planes, which is beneficial for runners. Your glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves, as well as your abductor and adductor muscles, are all utilized in downhill skiing.”
