Sample text

Many novices use the logic that they don’t wax because they don’t want to ski fast. Though wax does make the ski slide faster, this logic is backward. To control speed, the skier either turns the ski more across the fall line or tips the ski on its edge to create friction between the edge and the snow. Both of these methods involve moving the ski on the snow, and doing that requires a ski base that is slippery. Finally, failure to wax will result in the base oxidizing, decreasing the life of the ski base.

For example, a 40-year-old skier would have a predicted maximal heart rate of 180 (remember, 220 – 40 = 180) bpm. 75 = 135). The intensity level or percentage in this example is 75 percent. This is not a magic number, but it is a value that will stimulate the magic of training. If it is too high, the training becomes too intense and the skier is unable to proceed for a proper duration. If it is too low, the adaptive physiologic responses will not occur. So the key is finding the percentage of maximum heart rate in which to create a heart rate training zone.

Custom liners are available that do this job better for the hard-to-fit foot. Finger fit or shell fit is a method to dial in the fit. With the inner boot or liner out of the shell, place the footbed in the raw shell. Slip your foot into the shell and slide your foot forward until it contacts the front of the boot. Insert your hand into the shell behind your heel and measure the distance from your heel to the heel of the boot with your fingers. Depending on performance needs, two fingers is a good starting point.
