Pre-Season Workout with Jen Hudak: Week One

US Freeskiing athlete Jen Hudak takes us through the first of six exercises she does to get fit for skiing. Step one: three-way leg raises.

Jen Hudak, and the rest of the U.S. Freeskiing athletes are already in training for the season. The coaches at the U.S. Ski Team’s Center of Excellence in Park City put together a six-step pre-season workout for Hudak that you can do too. This week’s workout: three-way leg raises, which target your core and help strengthen the muscles you need to grab and spin.

We’ll drop a new exercise every Tuesday for the next five weeks.

Hudak also just released the first episode of her three-part series, “Moving Mountains,” which follows her through her season last year, which she calls “the toughest of my life.”
