3 Leg Exercises for Winter Sports

Bosu Lateral Motion Exercise

This exercise boots your muscular endurance, strengthens your ankle and knee stabilizers, and builds your core.

Start with your right foot on the center of the Bosu ball, your left foot on the ground. Push off the ground so you're slightly up in the air; land with your left foot on the Bosu ball, and your right foot meets the ground.

Concentrate on your foot alignment and utilize your core to maintain a strong balance. As you get comfortable, pick up the pace.

If you don't have a Bosu ball, do the same movement with your square.

Do three sets of 60 reps.
