One of the many ways MTI programming has advanced is how we’ve been able to apply programming methodology developed on our mountain side to our tactical athletes, and likewise, programming developed for our tactical athletes is tested and tried on mountain athletes.
A couple weeks ago I tested two of our Tactical Speed and Agility drills on three pro skiers – US Olympian Resi Stiegler, The North Face and Teton Gravity Research Athlete Hadley Hammer, and Freeskier Tess Wood.
Resi is on the US Ski Team and will ski for the US at next winter’s Olympics in South Korea. MTI’s Tactical Agility drills will be one of the tools we’ll use to train her power and explosiveness this summer.
