an olympian’s workout to get you ready for ski season part 2

Ski season has arrived and it's time to start planning trips to the slopes. If you haven’t already started, it’s crunch time to get your body ready for your first day on skis. Every skier knows that your first days on the hill can really punish your body. With a little preseason training, you can avoid or at least minimize the soreness that comes with a return to snow.


We asked Olympian and World Cup mogul skier Troy Murphy to put together a workout to get you fit to fly. So, without further ado, here is a standard weight training workout Troy would do in the offseason and as the season began to maintain strength and get his body ready for the season ahead.
