Hey guys, it's Kara again and welcome to Part Two of The Ski Monster Workout Guide. It’s been a year since our last post and it’s almost winter so most of you have likely mastered level 1 of the workout, so now you have a goal to reach before hitting the slopes this season: mastering Level 2. This set of more advanced exercises focuses on challenging owning your stability, strength and coordination that you developed in level 1. 

I’ve written two days for you, each day with 2 circuits of 3 sets with varying reps. As recommended in the Level 1 post, take 24 hours minimum between these two strength days to give your muscles time to recover and build back stronger. Use enough weight that you feel fatigued by the last 2 reps, but not so much that you are lifting to muscle failure every time. You’re in this for the long game, some days you’ll lift heavier than others and that’s okay. On the days you have high motivation and feel strong, #SENDIT and lift some heavy weights; other days it’s okay to back off if you need. Just keep that end goal in mind, regardless of what it might be. If you’re here though, I'm going to assume it’s shredding the slopes on back-to-back days feeling stronger than you ever have before. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you’re ski workout doesn’t at least include being on your feet and lifting heavy weights, you’re not going to thrive. So get moving.
