The game of team legs is getting harder and harder. We are beginning to include some dynamic/plyomteric movements in the program for 3-4 weeks. Now, if you have a history of knee issues or knee pain I caution you to perform the Jumping Lunges for all 8 rounds or even at all. There is a risk reward that can be beneficial for transferability to skiing, but if you are not strong enough yet or conditioned yet to land in a lunge then I would encourage you to just do Reverse lunge instead. If you spend your time off piste on the mountain or ski bumps, it would probably be smart to do some dynamic movements now in a controlled environment. This one will leave a mark, some call it “leaving a John Mark”. Again, new movements will typically induce some soreness, but that should not be every time you do it. Hopefully the body will adapt and the impact on the body will subside each week. Also, there is a reason we are doing split squats and jumping lunges on the same day. That is not by accident.
