Fitness training for telemark skiing isn’t just about about lunges and strong quadriceps. You need a strong butt too! Tightness in the hip flexor inhibits your ability to get good hip extension and as a result, minimizes how well your butt muscle can contract. Without a butt muscle that works well, you’ll ski inefficiently and risk injury.
