Q: You dislocated your knee most recently in 2016 requiring surgery and, after some PT, your physical therapist told you to start strength training. How is that going?
A: I think it’s a lot of adversity because when you’re battling an injury and trying to get strong, it’s not an easy feat. But I can see major progress made with my knee.
Q: You’ve been doing three (3) group classes each week religiously – do you think the consistency plays a big role in rehabbing your knee?
A: Yes. If you get sick or take a break from the gym and you come back, you realize, “Oh, consistency was working.”
Q: Dirtbiking is your favorite outdoor rec activity, and I know you ride a pretty heavy one at that. Have you found it easier and/or more enjoyable to dirtbike the stronger you get?
A: Yes, because I like to beat my friends! I find it a lot easier to overcome physical obstacles on the dirtbike for sure.
Q: Your front squat improved by 70 lbs in 8 weeks (145 lbs to 215 lbs)!! Why do you think your squat improved so much? Not to mention, it was the biggest increase of anyone during Ski/Snowboard Fitness.
A: This is a whole different program from what I was used to before Wright Training. New exercises that showed where I was weak or imbalanced.
Q: What else do we need to know about Justin Moss?
A: I think sometimes we become complacent in our current situation and change is good. You get stuck in a bad routine and it’s good to change things up. Where I was used to working out, we would just do the same thing over and over and didn’t have many diverse workouts. So, it is nice to have a variety of workout programs at the gym. I like that some days are barbell, some are kettlebell, some are more cardio. It mixes things up. Also, when I give it my best, the coaches are going to help even more. Someone who’s in the gym not giving it their all won’t get as much out of the workout nor will they get as much from the coach because they don’t want to be there.
