The Portillo US Ski Team Show – Take 4

Posts keep rollin in!  Its day 4 and the Team had a rest day today.  They train hard for 3 straight days with on snow gate training and with dry-land training and then take a day off….just like CrossFit…3 days on, 1 day off…BOOM!  Everyone slept in and had a lazy morning to mentally and physically recover.  These guys have a LONG season so its good to see them relaxing and taking their minds off training.  Tomorrow is a big day of downhill training.  Some GS in the afternoon. 
Here’s a shot of the dudes with some of the Canadian women’s athletes at Tio Bob’s restaurant near the top of Ski Portillo:
My Dad and I got after some good free-skiing today.  We shot some video and will get that up tomorrow. 
Alpine represent!
 
To all my Alpine CrossFit homeboys and homegirls out there, don’t worry I’ve been getting my burpees in!  It was 389 burpees today right??  I’ve been doing some strength work but most of the effort has been put into skiing/gate training.  Yesterday was 10×3 back squat and 5 rounds of 50 unbroken double unders with 2 hours of volleyball and today was 8×3 DE OH Press, 3-3-3-2-2-2 weighted pull-ups, 3 reps of max HSPU, and LOTS of mobility.  What a slacker!!  I’m thinking of doing a burpee Fran (21-15-9 Thrusters and burpees) outside in the snow tomorrow…why not.  Also, got some great scenic handstand and ski OH squat photos in gear with professional photographer Johnathon Selkowitz today…lets see if they can make the mainsite!

No video for us today but will get more footage tomorrow as the Team is doing their final day of Downhill training tomorrow before they leave.
