One of the easiest ways to improve your skiing is to get fit for the ski season. Performance always suffers if you’re fatigued. When you’re strong, you’ll ski better, and longer into the day. Front Squats are a key exercise for the U.S. Ski Team, as it strengthens quads and enhances core strength and stability. Ernie Reimer, USSA’s Strength and Conditioning Coach, and alpine athlete Kiely Staples take you through a step-by-step introduction to Front Squats in the team’s Center for Excellence in Park City, Utah. Front Squats are easy to do in most gyms, or at home with free weights.
