TGR Ski/Snowboard Training Camp #4: Foam Roller Hamstring Hell

Hey skiers & snowboarders! Crystal Wright here from Wright Training here in Jackson Hole. This is the fourth installment of our 9-part TGR Ski & Snowboard Training Camp, which will get in you killer shape to crush the slopes this winter with minimal equipment and gym experience. Today we'll be focusing on the Foam Roller Hamstring Hell circuit, which utilizes the foam roller many of you might have at home to really whip your hammies into shape for the upcoming season.

Put the arch of your foot on the top of the foam roller.

Don't move the foam roller around during the exercise.

Do about 15 with your first leg and your head down against the ground.

Then switch onto all fours and continue to the Donkey Kick with the same leg.

Keep your core tight and your hips square while you kicked your bent knee back and up.

Make sure you keep your back straight and flat as well; don't arch it. 

Do 25 donkey kicks before switching sides and starting all over again. Do two complete rounds of the circuit.

Sometimes, with the pressure involved with shooting segments in faraway places of the world, our athletes can forget why they came out there in the first place: to have fun and enjoy the incredible feeling sliding on snow gives. Well, not Tim Durtschi, who can find the humor in anything and has more than his fair share of moments creatively goofing off in the backcountry. Check out the next episode of Rogue Beings, an inside look at the amazing athletes behind our film Rogue Elements.

Ever Wonder How Dane Tudor Shreds Pow So Hard?

It’s no secret that to sustain a career as professional skier, you have to put in the off-season training hours. That doesn't just mean going to South America for a few weeks or riding your bike once the trails dry up, but it means hitting the gym and using every chance you can get to gain strength for the winter. Scott multisport athlete Dane Tudor spends much of his winter on huge backcountry ski missions with the TGR crew, but his off-season is anything but “off”. He is busy putting in
