Emphasizing Ski specific movements through suspended training

by PerformancEDU

The Ski Season is upon us here in the Tahoe/Truckee area and here is one of the best ways to create a ski specific program from an unbelievable training tool, the TRX:


“While with the US Disabled Ski team, I had great pleasure in being taught from one of the best in skiing, Kurt Smitz.  Kurt and I spent long hours discussing what type of  equipment would work best for the amount of traveling the team would be doing, but most importantly how we could incorporate ski specific movements  into a program with limited space domestically and internationally.
Alpine skiing emphasizes core movements, which are critical in the adjustment and maintenance of the skiers center of mass.  As such a dynamic sport,  the movements of skiing involve vertical, lateral and rotational planes of movement. The TRX suspension trainer allows the athletes to incorporate both isolation of a movement, multiple applications of a movement, while using ones own body weight to balance in an efficient training model. Training all of these movements during a certain program, will allow the athlete to visualize themselves being in a race condition. The TRX is an invaluable resource in the world of Alpine Skiing.”
