Has anyone ever tried this? If not, I just invented a new ski exercise!
I have been doing some exercises to get the old bod in shape for the next ski season. One of my favorites is the "Wall Sit" where you mimic a seated position with your back against a wall and hold it until you feel the burn. Just for variety, I thought I would try it one-legged. To do the exercise, I cross my ankle over the opposite knee, just as if I were sitting in a chair, and then hold in the seated position. The difference between this and the standard two-legged "Wall Sit" is that the burn comes on way faster, it requires balance, and it feels more in keeping with the way the legs work independently during skiing. The "One-Legged Wall Sit" - new for 2011-2012 Ski Season!
