Off-season got you down? Need a quick ski-fix? Turn to new motion-controlled video games.
In the days before next-generation video game controllers like Nintendo’s Wii system and the Xbox 360Kinect, the only work-out you might have gotten playing a skiing video game would have been for your thumbs. Not anymore. The game, so to speak, has changed.
Ernie Reimer, Strength and Conditioning Coach for the U.S. Ski Team, and alpine athlete Julia Ford take you through a step-by-step introduction to the Ski Team’s Box Clean-Pulls. The exercise builds core power, which is key to strong acceleration out of turns. The video, part of SKI’s fitness series with the U.S. Ski team, was shot at the USSA Center of Excellence, Park City, Utah.
