Week 2 of winter season strength brings back our FOCUS program!

In this phase we will be doing or most of our FOCUS at the end of each workout. There are a couple days that we sneak a stretch into the workout... This round is all about the hips.

As always our main objective is keeping you strong and SAFE both in the gym and outdoors doing what we love to do. The demands on our bodies change as we transition to snow sports. We have a good start on hip strength coming out of phase 1. Now it's time to build on that and add a little more intention on the mobility side. That is where the FOCUS program shines!

When considering snow sports it's obvious that downhill skiing and snowboarding can involve the biggest risks. Compared to our summer sports, hiking and cycling, these activities involve more rotation and angulation. Muscle memory makes it easy for us to clip back into our bindings and ski or ride a foot of powder on opening day but is it safe to do without any preparation? Nope... that is why you are here! More on why we chose the hips and how it all works to come!
