Preparation takes time and patience

Hi !

We are doing well with our house renewal. It is amazing how similar preparation is with our house renewal and ski racing. The better the preparation the better the finished product and better the finish in racing. I spent a lot of time leveling the floor, preparing the ceiling for the finish spray and so on. The preparation needed time, patience, planning, timing, and plan old hard work.

Now ski racing needs the same preparation! Endurance, Strength and power from our body's. That takes time, and effort. I have still been working out at home. Lifting weights. Full body work outs. legs , core (stomach and back), and upper body. My vision is that more of you do the same! If you can do that the better chance for even better results. As well as a better chance for a longer, healthier life! My work outs take 45 to 30 minutes. As I said I do them all at home. I did have to buy dumb bell weights.

This site has very compact system. They may be found on auctions and I did see them at Costco in Kelowna. They may have them at the Costco in Japan?

These sites are DVD sets that are very good. I use the Chalean Extreme DVD set.

Bye for now. Please check them out! And do your best to prepare!

Hi Doug !
I don't believe I've had the pleasure!
I'm really excited to find your blog the other day because I do love ski ,especially alpine SL event.
Although I'm not much of a player and also very young I've been deeply into it.
I think as we're getting older ,we're required to teach or coach juniors,however, it's important for us to try making an effort to improve our technique
and get in shape,too.
Regret to say, though I've been away fom skiing for nearly two decades,I've decided to start playing again!
I'm looking forward to reading your blog from now on ,I'm not very good at English ,though.
I' ve written two blogs.One is Japanese,the other English.
I'm glad you'd check it out if you'd like.
Best regard!
