This week we are starting our Power to the People deadlift cycle. We will be deadlifting twice a week for the next 6 weeks. This deadlift cycle is the beginning of our ski-prep. The hip, the primary driver of the deadlift, is the strongest joint in your body. The hip also is the driver of alpine, telemark and cross-country skiing and snow boarding. Deadlifting strengthens your hips and posterior chain like to no other lift. A strong posterior chain will help you ski longer and faster. Who's ready for a 30,000ft vertical day?
