In an interview with George Thomas, from the Professional Ski Instructors Association and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA-AASI), we discuss best strategies to physically prepare for snow-skiing and snowboarding, specifically to protect your knees. We talk about the important pillars of injury prevention training and how this specific type of training reduces the risk of knee pain or injury.
If you work or play on the snow, then it’s essential to prepare your body for the season by training your hips, legs, and core muscles properly. Follow our neuromuscular training tips to PROTECT your knees, PREVENT injuries, and PERFORM better.
