Pre Season Workout with Jen Hudak: Three-way leg raises

This exercise develops core function, strength, and control in a manner similar to various tricks with Freeskiing. Very similar to a mute grab while hanging from a pull-up bar, the exercise requires contraction of the core for stability, combined with hip flexion and a vertical body position to bring the legs up to the upper body, which contrasts from many supine/ground core exercises.

Pre-Season Workout with Jen Hudak: Weighted Push-ups

This exercise develops the musculature of the upper body, shoulders, low back, and core. While upper body strength is an important part of overall fitness and body balance, what makes this exercise great is the development of whole-body stability and core strength.
