Pre-Season Workout with Jen Hudak: Week Two

US Freeskiing athlete Jen Hudak takes us through six exercises she does to get fit for skiing. Step two: Lateral box jumps.

Jen Hudak, and the rest of the U.S. Freeskiing athletes are already in training for the season. This is the second of six exercises that the coaches at the U.S. Ski Team’s Center of Excellence in Park City put together for Hudak. You can play along at home.This week’s exercise is lateral box jumps, which Jen says simulate the need for equal weight on both of your skis when you’re in the pipe. We say that translates to any kind of skiing.
