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.

From The Series: TGR Ski/Snowboard Training Camp

The yolo flip is a cab double cork 1440 in the halfpipe and was first done by iPod at Winter X Games 2013. The young Californian upstart Toby Miller saw the yolo flip as a perfect trick to add to his arsenal in the pipe. Watch Toby and Shaun White session the Mt. Hood halfpipe with the goal of putting down an illusive yolo flip.

Discussing Snowboarding’s Beginnings, Progression And The Key To Happiness With Todd Richards

The Inertia gives us a deeper look into a true snowboarding legend, Todd Richards in their latest series "creators."

Frigid temps, blue ice, and shitty equipment was the reality and caused Todd to originally hate snowboarding.  Richards moved west to
