Now that you're six weeks into Ted Ligety and the U.S. Ski Team's pre-season workout plan you should be feeling strong fit, and ready to ski.  The last step in the program is overhead medicine ball throws, which Ted and the rest of the team call the "man or mouse" drill. Alex Moore, the head men's alpine trainer says that overhead medicine ball throws work your back, glutes, hamstrings, and quads. Ted does four sets of four, and he can get a 10-pound ball on to the celling of the Ski Team's Center of Excellence.
