Leaves are Brown, There's a Patch of Snow on the Ground

pop quiz; bracelets cover shadowy Winter

On the Snow has teamed up with US Ski Team members to create a series of videos to show us ‘mortals’ a thing or two about ski fitness: Don’t forget, it’s not supposed to be easy.

The ski lift maintenance teams are in, the mountain restaurants are dusting themselves down, the gear shops are swapping from bikes to skis: yes, the ski season in the Northern hemisphere is getting close; are you ready? Work that butt!

The only equipment you need for this one is a partner able to hold your legs down. Core strength, lower back, your bum and hamstrings all benefit from this killer exercise.

pop trivia: “Leaves are brown, there's a patch of snow on the ground” is from ‘Hazy Shade of Winter’, a Simon & Garfunkel song which hit the charts in 1987 when covered by The Bangles.
