CMS Guide Matt Lipscomb hits the weights to prepare for ski season.
One of the most efficient styles of strength training is Olympic weight lifting. The Olympic lifts are dynamic, they engage multiple large muscle groups, and the strength gains translate well to athletic sports (like backcountry skiing) without “bulking up.” Shown above is one of my favorite training lifts – the deadlift. It works all the major muscle groups in the lower body (hamstrings, quads, glutes) as well as the core and lower back muscles.
Now is the time to build your fitness foundation for a long and rewarding ski season! Once you are ready to get out skiing, I'd love to be your guide. Call the office, request me, and let's get some turns in together.
Please Note: The Boulder Rock Club offers ski conditioning classes free for all members. Tuesdays at 5:45pm and Wednesdays at 12pm.
