We’re kicking our Olympic coverage into high gear and will be profiling all of the winter sports and athletes you need to know about.
One of athletes to watch is ski racer Lindsey Vonn who is a favorite on and off the slopes. She’s a back-to-back World Cup winner who’s been dreaming about an Olympic gold medal since she was a little girl. With the Vancouver Games less than a month away, you might be interested in knowing what Vonn is doing to prep for the high stakes competition.
How does she condition to withstand the G-forces she encounters barreling down the mountain? What does she do to get stronger and faster? How does she train herself to be better than the competition?
In the video below, Vonn goes through a workout routine. These are some serious exercises that work the core and get her in shape for top-level races. Check out the skier squats she does on the large balance ball towards the end and see what a takes to build a champion.
