Want to ski better than ever? Try our preseason strength training fitness plan, and we guarantee you will. 2 sets x 12-17 reps
Lie on a bench that is set so that your upper legs are parallel to the ground and your feet can be planted firmly on the floor. Your head, shoulder blades and sacrum should be firmly on the bench, but there should be a slight arch in your lower back. Raise the weights straight up so that your hands are directly over your chest and your elbows are pointing toward your knees.

Without moving your shoulders or upper arms, slowly lower your forearms so that they form about a 90-degree angle with your upper arm. Hold and then slowly lift the lower arms back up to the start position. Hint: In order to keep your upper arms and shoulders static, think about keeping your funny bone in the same spot throughout the movement.
