LEG BLASTERS

Pre-season Workout 1: Leg Blasters

Hey skiers & snowboarders! Kelly here from MADventures. This is the first installment of our Ski & Snowboard Training Camp, which will get in you great shape to hit the slopes this winter with minimal equipment and gym experience. Today we'll be focusing on Leg Blasters–a great, simple circuit that will gain you a ton of eccentric strength.

Here's how to do it:

Start with 4 round of mini Leg blasters, which are:

  • 10 squats
  • 10 alternating lunges
  • 10 jump lunges
  • 5 jump squats

This then progresses to 6 full Leg Blasters over a 6 week period, which is:

  • 20 squats
  • 20 alternating lunges
  • 20 jump lunges
  • 10 jump squats

This should be your progression with the workouts:

  • Weeks 1-2: 4 and 6 minis
  • Weeks 3-4: 2 fulls, 6 minis
  • Weeks 5-7: 3 full, 4 minis
  • Weeks 8-10: 4 full and 6 full
