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

While deep snow and steep pitches are some of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s most valued attributes, they can also cause major problems, like avalanches. Normally, JHMR ski patrol’s extensive experience and a healthy dose of dynamite mitigates any danger. Once in a blue moon, however, there is an in-bounds slide. When that happens, rapidly locating and excavating buried victims is the key to a positive outcome. In those critical moments when an extra few minutes of searching and digging can
