Training Tips with Ted Ligety: Week 1

Training Tips with Ted Ligety: Week 1

The first episode in a six-part workout series from Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety and the U.S. Ski Team. This week's exercise: weighted squat jumps.
posted: 10/04/2010
Over the next six weeks Ted Ligety, Olympic gold medalist and two-time World Cup giant slalom champ, will show us six different exercises he does to get into shape for ski season. This week's exercise: weighted squat jumps.Alex Moore, strength and conditioning coordinator for the U.S. Ski Team, and Ted's trainer, says that weighted squat jumps are good for the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. They help with the development of improved elastic qualities against an external resistance. This exercise increases vertical jump and gives the skiers a greater capability to exert more power on the hill.To make the exercise harder, add more weight to the bar. To make it easier, remove the weight, but jump up to a box or step. For more information about Ligety, Moore and the rest of the U.S. Ski Team check out http://www.usskiteam.com
