Warm up exercises to reduce recovery time with Olympic freestyle skier Rowan Cheshire – Part 4

Straight off the slopes, Olympic freestyle skier Rowan Cheshire is here to help you build strength, stability and aid muscle recovery during this five-part series of glutes and legs workouts 

Welcome back for part four, this time around Rowan has a trick to help reduce those aches and pains,  this can be done as a warm up or as a cool down or both and all you will need is a foam roller. These exercises will improve blood flow to the areas being worked which will set you up for a reduction in recovery time and this can also help to lower your risk of injury.

When rolling you want to target the main muscle groups and focus on anywhere that feels tight. Adjusting your body with slight movements during each exercise can ensure you are hitting more muscles.

Recovery routine

  • Perform 8-10 rolls in each position
  • Areas of focus – All back muscles with additional work on lats, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves
  • Perform this once before and after a workout
