Conditioning for skiing has two benefits. The first is no surprise: The better shape you’re in, the better you’ll ski. But being fit also helps reduce your chance of injury. Here, Ernie Reimer, USSA’s Strength and Conditioning Coach, and U.S. Ski Team athlete Kiley Staples take you through a step-by-step introduction to a workout with our favorite name: Romanian Dead Lifts. This exercise strengthens hamstrings, helping to reduce the chance for knee and ACL injuries.
