Targeted Sports Training: Skiing
Retail price: $19.98 Our Price: $16.99

With a weather-specific sport like skiing, it's hard to improve technique out of season. That's why the Targeted Sports Training series is so useful. Professional instructors provide tips and exercises for becoming a better skier at home. By working out certain muscles, the athlete can tighten form and condition the body. The first section is designed to increase cardio output, perfect for the harsh demands of the slope. The video also provides a workout for the lower body with a concentration on the stabilizing muscles in the abs and shoulders. After following the low-impact movements, the viewer is given advice on technique and motivation. The ski-lodge setting is supplemented with a trip to the gym, where the instructors explain useful machines for skiers. Joann Younker, a top skier at Whistler/Blackcomb, wraps up the lesson. Targeted Sports Training: Skiing can provide a valuable solution to the summer doldrums while subtly improving form and ability. ~ Sarah Ing, All Movie Guide
