Get Fit with the U.S. Ski Team: Front Squats

Get Fit with the U.S. Ski Team: Front Squats

Beef up your quads with the U.S. Ski Team.
posted: 11/12/2012

One of the easiest ways to improve your skiing is to get fit for the ski season. Performance always suffers if you’re fatigued. When you’re strong, you’ll ski better, and longer into the day. Front Squats are a key exercise for the U.S. Ski Team, as it strengthens quads and enhances core strength and stability. Ernie Reimer, USSA’s Strength and Conditioning Coach, and alpine athlete Kiely Staples take you through a step-by-step introduction to Front Squats in the team’s Center for Excellence in Park City, Utah. Front Squats are easy to do in most gyms, or at home with free weights.


reviews of Get Fit with the U.S. Ski Team: Front Squats
"Squat until your feet are perpendicular to the floor?" What does that mean. You should be squatting until your hip crease goes below your patella.
Yeah, like Ozzy said. Do you mean 'quads parallel to the floor'? What about 'knees behind the feet'? How does THAT work?
John, what it means is that this video is a mess. No disrespect to the nice person who performed the squats, I am sure she can outski me nine ways to Sunday, but your reps were shallow. You guys can do better.
