Jen Hudak, and the rest of the U.S. Freeskiing athletes are already in training for the season. Crossover lunges are the third of six exercises that the coaches at the U.S. Ski Team's Center of Excellence in Park City put together for Hudak. Crossover lunges force your to put your weight across the midline of your body, working your stabilizer muscles and testing your balance. They also help to strengthen your knees, and prevent them from bowing in when you land jumps, which in turn prevents knee injuries.
