The Ski Twist Stretch

The Ski Twist Stretch

By John Atkins
posted: 01/31/2000

The lower back and trunk are the support system for the entire body. Do the Ski Twist Stretch before and after you hit the hill to warm up and cool down these essential body parts. In return, you'll improve your edging, power and endurance.

How To Do It Lie on the floor on your back with your right arm extended to your side. Using your left hand, slowly pull your right knee across your torso while keeping your right shoulder and hand on the floor. Hold for 15 seconds and switch legs. Do three repetitions with each leg.

What It Does The Ski Twist Stretch stabilizes the lower back and trunk-two focal points that affect your overall performance.
