  1. This was a really helpful video.  Thank you for putting it together.  I just started XC skiing again after a 25 year hiatus.  I am 71 with an artificial right hip.  For me it is difficult to rotate my hips and knees to get into a snow plough.  Do you have any recommended exercise that would strengthen my hips?

  2. Thanks for the feedback Jerry. Here's a link to some great post hip surgery exercises: http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00303. I would consider these exercises very, very moderate in intensity, but a great way to keep good technique during these movements because you're lying down while doing them. If I were to take it up a notch or two in intensity, if you're ready, I would do this: front plank, side plank right and left. Great for the core, great for the body. All movement comes from the core, develop a strong core, other movements are strengthened. Establish a base line, like 15 seconds or 30 seconds. Do that amount of time front (30 seconds), right side (30 seconds), left side (30 seconds) without taking a break = 1 set. Start with one set two or three times per week, work-up to 2 sets. Then increase the time by five or ten seconds. It doesn't have to hurt or be hard to be effective. Adherence is most important! Next, add a squat, BUT make sure you have perfect form: knees behind the feet as you lower your body, knees track straight, and only go down as far as you are comfortable, weight on the heels of the feet. Again, do an amount that doesn't tax or fatigue you. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO HURT TO BE EFFECTIVE! Last exercise, cross lateral balancing moves like I show in the video. Stand on a single leg, move your arms and offside leg like you're classic skiing. Use a wall or ski pole for balance until you don't need it. Also stand on one foot and swing the offside leg out to the side (also described in my video and at the site linked above). That's it: planks, shallow squats, cross lateral balancing moves. My last tip, do short, quick sets throughout day. I set an alarm every 55 minutes while I work in the office. When the alarm goes off, I do squats, planks, push-up and pull-ups. I keep it to one set, then go back to work. It truly amazes me the definition and strength gains I developed from a little pushing, pulling, squatting and planking throughout the day. ONE MORE LAST TIP: eat a low inflammation diet. The best low inflammation diet? I think it's this: low carb, no sugars, no grains of any kind, avoid seed oils (canoloa, cotton, soy, etc) at all costs, eat healthy fats like avocados, coconuts, olive oils, butter, animal fats (butter, lard), eat healthy protein (fish, chicken, beef, lamb and animal innards, sardines, etc) and tons of veggies. With your protein, try to go grass fed and finished.

  3. Thank you for the link.  I use your video to stretch and warm up for my 3X week brisk walk.  I am determined to be a strong XC skier by next winter.

  4. Hello from the Methow! I typed in dynamic skate ski stretches on google and your video came up first. Thanks for the inspiration! See ya back in Bend sometime soon!
