The BD Beta with DPT Esther Smith: Gym Exercises to Improve Ski Touring Mechanics

Author(s): Black Diamond
Video Release Date: January 9, 2020
Video Source: YouTube

Join Mary McIntyre and Esther Smith as they explore a select kit of strengthening exercises specifically designed to improve ski touring mechanics and avoid the all-too-common hip flexor burn out. By strengthening the sides and backs of the hips we can offset the over-use of our hip flexors and improve our efficiency on the uphill which buys us more time, more laps and more days out!
