The core of your being.

I've been hearing a lot of talk about core strength recently.

Core strength refers to the muscles in your core, or trunk. Your lower back, glutes, and abdominal muscles all come into play, working together to create movement, disseminate force, and keep you stable as you ski. A strong core can influence your balance to keep you from falling, and help provide you with greater control on the slopes.

So how strong is your core? Take a look at the video below for a simple(?) test that can help you find out.



Be sure to visit TheSkiDiva.com, an internet forum especially for women skiers, where women skiers can connect with one another to talk about everything and anything ski-related.
