WORK IT OUT WEDNESDAY: SKI STRONG

photo-163Going skiing this winter, or over Spring Break? I’ve teamed up with The Move Project to show you three movements that will help you Move, Feel, and Perform better on the slopes this year!  I’m also including some of my favorite active layering pieces from St Bernard Sports and lululemon athletica, perfect for your ski trip.  Be sure to scroll all the way down for outfit details:-)

  • Integrate these movements into your weekly workouts to help build strength and endurance in your lower body, trunk, and spine.

  • After performing each movement, superset one set of 10-15 reps of Trunk Flexion (crunches).

  • Warm up on elliptical, bike, or treadmill for 5-10 minutes, at a moderate intensity. Then, complete the workout circuit below…
