Get Fit with the U.S. Ski Team: Heavy Half Squats

Heavy half squats increase demand on the hip musculature while eliminating the limitations of the muscles acting on the knee in deep ranges of motion. This exercise is a good one for in-season maintenance because it keeps the athletes strong while reducing muscle soreness.

Crossfit for Skiers

Crossfit for Skiers
Pip-why crossfit
You’ve probably heard of it by now. Gyms are popping everywhere and fans swear by it. But what is Crossfit? And why does it make your pre-season training more efficient?

Crossfit mimics how we move in everyday life. Humans use multiple muscles to move; we engage our quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, and core to walk, pick up groceries, and get off the couch, even to get out of bed. How often do you find yourself bicep curling the milk to put it away or attempt to move your furniture laying on your back pushing with your legs? Crossfit is about creating usable strength, not just glamour muscles.
