Hello Ski Fans,
Tuesday, September 15th, the entire team will be meeting at the Apple Bowl for our Critical Speed testing at 5pm. The First test will start at 5:20 so if you are a little late we will be warming up. We would like all athletes 13 and older to complete at least one of these test sessions per season. This is an opportunity to improve your results and to compare yourself to others in the country plus current and past Telemark skiing Heros!
The Evening will look like this: 5:00 Warmup, 5:20 Test 1, 5:35 Testing and Metrics Discussion, 6:00 NST Strength Test 2, 6: 35 Prep for next test, 6:50 Test3 and done by 7pm.
Test 1, 5:20, 13 and older will run the 3000 m. 12 and under will run the 1000 m.
Test 2, 6:00, is the NST Strength test. 2 people will start this test every 2 minutes and they will do 1 minute of an activity with 1 minute break between. The order of the test is Pull-ups, Sit-ups, Push-ups, Box Jumps and Dips. You will have a partner who helps you count your repetitions. When you have completed the test you will count for your partner’s test.
Test 3, 6:50, the 13 and older will run the 1000 m. 12 an under will run the 400 m possibly in two heats depending on numbers.
Despite how difficult this sounds everyone has a really good time doing the testing.
