Summer Of Sweat // Parker Biele

by Roger Carry on July 30, 2021

Injuries are simply a part of ski racing, how athletes choose to adapt to them varies greatly depending on who you talk to. For this week's #SummerOfSweat Parker Biele takes us through the upper body circuit that she has perfected while mending a broken toe.  

 Hi Everyone my name is Parker Biele, I am a Burke Mountain Academy and Boston College Skiing Alum. Currently I am an independent athlete working with SSCV and SYNC Performance to pursue my goals in GS this season. For my summer of sweat I was considering rollerblading all over the eagle area or doing a timed hike up Vail Mountain (thanks Burke) but unfortunately I have hit a small speed bump in my summer training and broke my toe. So instead of letting my injury slow me down I am going to share with all of you my new favorite circuit “Broken Toe Fun” and go through how you can continue to train hard even when you have injuries. 

- Disclaimer this doesn't mean train stupid you still need to be smart and listen to your body I was lucky enough that with my boot on I am allowed to do all upper body workouts and bike -

So for my circuit I did 3 rounds of muscle beach but added the assault bike to keep things interesting. 30 seconds each exercise 5-10 seconds to switch between stations and then 2-3 min off in between rounds.

Due to the short bursts of work you are supposed to MAX EFFORT at each station!!

-Pull-ups

-OH Press

-LEG Lowers w/weight 

-Dumbbell row 

-Plank plate Pull Through 

-Kneeling OH Dumbbell Press

-Shoulder T’s 

-Assault Bike 

I know this isn't as creative as the other summer of sweat workouts have been and I broke the rule of being in the gym but I think it is still a great way to show that you can always find a way to workout even when you have to get creative!!

-Parker

Championship Jacket

Hi! We haven't had much snow in California yet so I have not had a chance to use my championship jacket yet. But it looks well constructed and I will let you know once I get out on the hill. BTW, last year I bought a long sleeve quarter zipper base layer which I love for hikes. I bought the fleece pants which I really love for winter hikes and hanging at the house. The front pocket sustained a wearing out with a hole in it now. That is a bummer but overall I have been very happy with all of your products. I am also an aging sometimes Masters racer at 61. When I was the age of the average Sync racer we did not have the sort of culture you have created for the racers and I love what you have done in this regard. Cheers!

WOW!!

This jacket is beautiful and has a great fit. It is thick and substantial in weight, fitted nicely through the waist so it gives a nice shape, has lots of pockets, zippers appear to be heavy duty, and it's a nice color. Have not yet tested it skiing but I know it will hold up and be warm. I'm allergic to down, so the synthetic primaloft is great and hopefully the water resistance is very high. There are only 2 things I would change: maybe a tad more stretch in the shell fabric, and I really don't need the faux fur on the removable hood. This appears to be a serious skiers jacket. For reference I'm 5'8" and 130lbs but ordered a womens large so I could layer when needed and cinch up a bit when not. As a Northern Midwest skier we get a lot of wet and stormy days, with lots of racing, so hoping this holds up in the worst of it. Thanks SYNC!

Finally found the perfect jacket!

I have been looking for the perfect jacket for a while and finally found it! It fits perfectly. Style and great looks meets functionality and warmth!
