    I'm in LA, I just don't really have a lot of cash to travel around. I think leg blasters and building my aerobic base sound like the best bet. Someone was telling me some courses throw down plastic sheets for summer skiing practices but it doesn't seem to me like that would really be comparable. I feel like if you're going to do that, you could do something similar with inline skates on pavement LOL

    the only thing thats gona make your skiing better is more skiing but gravity sports will help get in the groove so get out & mtn bike

    I credit the weight room with allowing me to become an advanced skier, there will be lots of argument on this but I would go lower weights/higher reps

    edit: and I never use free weights I just use the machines ... faster safer

    Agreed, especially if you go from exercise to exercise without pausing, better known as circuit training.

    Another spin on it is to do circuit training as intervals. Do 20 seconds of reps, then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat 8 times, for a total of 4 minutes. If you do this for, say, 10 exercises, you've got an intense 40 minute workout. This works best with lighter weights, but the strength and aerobic effects are notable.

    if you can't make for something outdoors.

    You can skip the bench obviously, but leads to imbalances. SelectTech dumbbells are out of frame... 300sf

    (if the pic isn't there - somebody tell me)

    What do you do on that little trampoline?

    I found jumping, flipping and spinning around on a large trampoline quite the workout.

    We're pulling your leg about the exercise stuff. You should do what we all do. Spend the summer in South America. If you're not core enough to do that than you shouldn't be on this forum.

    i'm finally able to put in a little time and distance hiking on back to back to back days. new knee still gets a little sore but i haven't been taking anything at all for pain and not icing nearly as regularly. hoping to get back to lightweight backpacking next summer. 3 sisters loop and timberline trail have been calling my name for a while now. so nice not to be sweating in pain all the time. i can't wait for snow.

    Versa Climber is anaerobic cardio phase mostly. Tramp in the aerobic cardio phase consistently. both used just about everyday.

    Took the kids to the jump house - loved it. Much better upper quad stim. would love to have for daily use. Jaks the house insurance by 300$?

    Among other things, tried out leg blasters last night. I went to a few kundalini yoga classes last year and there was a similar exercise we did in that class but I can't remember the name of the pose. It looks super easy but the repetition really starts to get excruciating. Surprised I'm not more sore today.

    Winona? I guess.
    Looks like Miley Cyrus to me.
    I do not like Mileys voice, singing or speaking, but she has won me over with her free the nipple and smoking dope shenanigans.

    Something for the legs, and building the aerobic base, are going to be the ticket. In LA you have a lot of hills, ranging from the beach to the mountains just outside town. And the ocean. Everything from body surfing to steep trail running to the gravity sports suggestions can work what you need. Longboard skateboarding the flat parts of town can be good too.

    Balance drils. Tie a rope between two trees/poles about 1 foot off the ground. Or a small ball and stand on it with 1 foot and do leg squats. That will tune you up.
