Exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine that you may like to share?
One exercise that is one of my favorites, is called “Elghufs” in Norwegian, with sort of translates to moose movements uphill. It´s like running with skiing poles on a steep slope, trying to imitate the cross country movement. I do 6+5+4+4+4 minute bursts, with three minute pauses in-between.
While playing professional sports, athletes often face injuries and other difficulties, how to cope up and make a comeback after an injury
When I get an injury, I always try to find ways to train around it. If I have problems with my arms, I go skiing without poles. If there is something hurting in my feet, I can go double poling without using my legs. Also it is important to work on having a strong and agile core, as it often prevents injuries from happening in the first place.
