Summer Cross Training

In order to prepare for the next season I have been focusing on three key conditioning activities that I believe will make me a competitor to be feared this coming ski season.

First of the three is Cross Fit.  This will improve my strength.

The second is Yoga. I don't have a picture of me doing yoga however, once I get one I will add it here and delete this sentence. I believe yoga will help my flexibility on the mountain and minimize injuries.

Third and finally for my endurance conditioning I have been swimming as usual.  This is the one sport I have been doing the longest.  I first began swimming when I was seven years old.  I was most competitive my freshman year of high school when I was in the pool three times a day for no less than an hour each session.  After joining the Marine Corps I became a water safety swimmer, and now, after my injury, I continue to swim to keep up my conditioning.
